Technology We Use

Effectiveness of any treatment clearly depends upon the accuracy of diagnosis followed by appropriate planning. We at NEW WAY CENTRE FOR CRANIOFACIAL PAIN AND ORTHODONTIA assures to accomplish those criteria with the meticulous knowledge of our experts aided with the best of bioelectric equipments that are sophisticated enough to achieve realistic treatment goals.

JOINT VIBRATION ANALYSIS (JVA)

This equipment is used to measure the vibrations within the temporomandibular joint which are characteristics of various alterations that occur when any sort of deformation has taken place in the joint.

It has been reckoned to be advantageous as it produces a visual image of the recording along with permitting a permanent hard copy for record.

It operates based upon recording the wavelengths of different vibrations instead of sound. Paired with another devices, such as, Jaw-tracker and EMG, it provides with extremely reliable analysis.

T-SCAN

T-scan is computerised occlusal analysis system. Using it, effect of occlusal contacts on muscle function can be simultaneously recorded and play back. It clearly depicts the areas of occlusion which imparts heavier contacts and others with lighter than desired contacts. T-scan is used to demonstrate the effect of immediate disclusion when mandible moves from its most comfortable position. Variations in myofascial pain symptoms with shortening of disclusion can also be recorded excellently.

ELECTROMYOGRAPHY

Popularly known as EMG, it is an evaluation to know about the efficiency of your craniofacial musculature. Activity of muscles is recorded in rest, chewing and clenching state. It allows the clinician to know effects of each dental and neuromuscular procedures on your muscle function. Gives clarity about which occlusal interferences are of primary concern to reduce pain. Helps in creating balance between muscle groups. It provides the ability to be assure about the bite positions before finalising treatment options.

JAW TRACKER (JT-3D)

This equipment provides extremely accurate, quantitative, reproducible data about deviations, deflections, and various other movements of the mandible. Clinician is enable to gather objective data while chewing, swallowing, speaking etc. the array of sensors allow the clinician to evaluate where the jaw is exactly during a range of movements. It records every detail in three dimensions. It aids in detecting abnormal jaw function so as to make precise diagnosis. It can even be utilised in “bite registration”.

TENS (Quadra TENS)

It is a dual channel device that allows two sets of muscles to relax simultaneously. An incorporated “burst” mode leads to production of increased contraction in muscles without causing any shock due to high amplitude. It allows the stimulation of motor fibres of the nerves associated with muscles that are involved in pain. As contrary to medications, TENS therapy has no side effects like nausea, dependence etcetera. It is proven to deliver remarkable results in alleviating pain in head, neck and jaw.

LASER THERAPY

Laser therapy is considered to be beneficial in treating TMJ dysfunction, craniofacial pain, inflammation and muscular pain. It operates with dual wavelength technology to facilitate healing and reduction of inflammation at the cellular level. It even stimulated the growth of new cells at the sites of inflammation. Laser therapy is one of the fastest, easiest and tremendously effective of managing pain. It allows the clinicians to cut off your intake of medications, precisely, pain killers, by treating pain immediately.

THERAPEUTIC ULTRASOUND

It is a non-invasive therapeutic method that include sound wave vibrations at 16Hz. It is known to accelerate the healing of tissues, reducing stiffness in TMJ, alleviating pain, decreasing spasm and tension in muscles and even increasing the extendibility of collagen fibres.

DIGITAL 3-D SCANNER

In era of technology, the introduction of digital scanning has made vision of dentistry more accurate. Digital intraoral scanning allows the clinician to create a three-dimensional image of your mouth for accurate visualization of all the intraoral structures in precision so that appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan can be done.

WHY 3-D SCANNING?

  1. There is more accuracy with digital scanning as compared to conventional methods of impression taking and radiographs. Therefore, there occurs fewer re-dos and better fit of appliances.
  2. Digital scanning is more comfortable as there are no chances of gagging due to insertion of material loaded trays.
  3. Better treatment predictability is another benefit of 3-D scanning. In just a matter of seconds, the high technology demonstrates you with an intended result illustrative 3-D picture, from which you can easily visualize how your smile and occlusion would be after completion of treatment.
  4. Images of very high-resolution and precision are obtained with 3-D scanner. Along with that, interactive images of your teeth make you and your clinician understand the situation efficiently.
  5. Progressive assessment of ongoing treatment is made easy and possible with this scanning device and therefore you can easily track your progress.
