At Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we are committed to providing the most advanced diagnostic tools to help our patients in the journey to a healthy smile and a happier life. We offer a groundbreaking system, joint vibration analysis, for a highly-accurate TMJ diagnosis. This system is an electronic method of analyzing vibrations in the jaw joint. Once the analysis has been performed, the vibrations are analyzed to help determine the underlying cause of jaw joint pain and other symptoms that may indicate TMJ.

What is a Joint Vibration Analysis?

This advanced system allows us to detect certain vibrations in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This joint is what allows your mouth to open and close. The analysis involves placing a device, similar to small headphones, on both your left and right jaw joints, and placed next to your ears. The device detects the vibrations produced when opening and closing your mouth.

Why Do Your Jaw Joints Vibrate?

The jaws are an amazing natural structure that allows constant motion of the mouth throughout your lifetime. The structure includes a small disc of cartilage that should be sturdily attached to the lower jaw and slide along as you open and close your mouth, keeping it from grinding. This cartilage disc can become jammed between the bones, detached, or damaged due to teeth grinding (bruxism), orthodontic treatment, arthritis, or injury to the area due to trauma.

Developing Treatment for TMJ After Joint Vibration Analysis

After evaluating the vibrations produced by your jaw joints, our team of professionals can craft a treatment plan to bring you relief from the various symptoms of TMJ. A custom mouthguard is often a successful way to relieve the symptoms, along with exercises or other treatment that can bring relief from any of the following uncomfortable effects of TMJ:

  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain
  • Popping, clicking at jaw joint
  • Jaw locking when in motion
  • Ear pain
  • Discomfort around jaw joint

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update

Our doors are open and we are seeing patients!

Our mission has always been to provide the highest quality care available to our community.

At your next appointment, in addition to upholding the OSHA standards that we have always maintained, you will notice updated office protocols, new technology, and additional equipment above and beyond the required. Please read them over so you know what to expect when you come to your appointment:

  • Prior to your appointment: Patients will be asked to complete a 12-question health screening and a consent for treatment. Please sign and submit online prior to your appointment. In addition, we will securely store credit card information for contactless payment.
  • Temperature checks: All team members and patients will be screened daily. Anyone with a temperature of 100° or higher will not be permitted to enter our building.
  • Arrival: We ask that patients “check-in” by sending a text to 404.847.9711, letting us know you have arrived. Please include your car’s make and color. Relax in your vehicle; we will be out to greet you with a warm welcome and a temperature reading.
  • Additional prevention measures: Patients will be given a hydrogen peroxide oral rinse and asked to wash their hands before being taken directly to their patient suite. Please wear a mask if you have one.
  • Our new ‘look’: You will notice your hygienist or assistant fully donned with PPE (personal protection equipment) happy to see you and still smiling underneath it all. Lab coats are changed for every patient.
  • Behind the scenes: As always, each suite has been meticulously prepared for your arrival. In addition to every surface being treated with the proper disinfection tools, we have added individual air purifiers that remove bacteria and viruses in each suite and throughout the office. UV light sterilization wands are also being used to ensure no surface is untreated.
  • Time to say goodbye: At the end of your appointment we will schedule your next appointment and email your receipt. We will escort you to the side door to return to your car. This will limit crossing paths as much as possible.

We appreciate your understanding regarding our new procedures and hope you appreciate the added safety measures we are taking to ensure your care. We may look a little different today but are committed to delivering the same excellence and ‘Ritz Carlton’ service you are accustomed to. Thank you for allowing us to be a dedicated part of your healthcare team.
