As part of the update, Millennium Smiles is utilizing advanced biometric technology to assist in the diagnosis of temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD). The practice explains that symptoms caused by the condition can include pain in the jaw or face, unexplained headaches, clicking noises in the jaw, neck or upper back pain, and ringing ears.
A recent systematic review, published by the US National Library of Medicine, found that over 30% of American adults suffer from some form of TMD. The condition is second only to lower back pain in terms of musculoskeletal complaints. As a result, the review recommends that dental practitioners should consider strategies for early diagnosis and management.
With the goal of remaining at the forefront of the dental industry, Millennium Smiles’ recent expansion is designed to provide advanced diagnostic technologies throughout the wider Frisco region. The clinic’s Joint Vibrational Analysis equipment allows TMJ function to be assessed in as little as 5 minutes and is a non-invasive and pain-free method.
“Failing to treat TMD can have detrimental effects on your oral health or overall health,” a clinic representative explained. “Our TMJ therapy is a reversible, noninvasive method that usually lasts 12-16 weeks, and it has a 95% success rate of addressing reported symptoms. In the cases that are unsuccessful, we will explore and recommend non-reversible Phase II therapy.”
