Our neuromuscular dentist knows the latest technology can give patients the best experience. That is why we are excited to get our hands on an innovative new diagnostic tool called BioPAK. Not only does it help our team identify the signs of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), but it also allows us to find the most appropriate and personalized treatment for various painful conditions.
What is BioPAK?
BioPAK is a complete diagnostic system that measures the function of the jaw and the activity of its surrounding muscles. It features several different devices, such as:
- BioEMG III™: Evaluates the effectiveness of craniofacial muscles.
- JT-3D™: Analyzes the precise movements and positions of the jaw.
- M-Scan™: Compares muscle symmetry and offers quick feedback.
What Issues Can BioPAK Diagnose?
Sometimes tooth pain isn’t tooth pain at all. It can be related to various muscle or nerve issues. Finding relief begins with a clear and accurate diagnosis. The BioPAK technology can detect:
- Temporomandibular joint disorder
- Sleep apnea
- Craniofacial pain
As a versatile diagnostic system, BioPAK can also be used to evaluate patients undergoing restorative, orthodontic, denture, implant, and occlusal reconstruction dental work. The data given to us by this technology allows us to make decisions and measure treatment results.
This system also has preventative benefits. In some cases, it can identify potential problems before symptoms appear, proactively guiding the treatment planning process. The result is a healthy, functional, and comfortable smile!
