Joint Vibration Analysis Washington DC

Washington DC Dentist Dr. Cobb Uses Joint Vibration AnalysisJoint Vibration Analysis (JVA) is among the latest technologies used in the analysis of TMJ function. This non-invasive tool records accurate and repeatable measurements in seconds and produces instant data for Dr. Cobb to interpret.

The human joints have surfaces that rub together; smooth, well lubricated surfaces produce little friction and as a result, little vibration. In some cases, these joints can be rough, due to age, damage or other causes. These rough surfaces produce increased friction and vibration. Different disorders can produce different vibration patterns or signatures that can be interpreted by skilled professionals.

Dr. Cobb has invested in the JVA technology to help him quickly and accurately identify TMJ disorders. Dr. Cobb focuses his continuing education on occlusion, TMJ, and esthetic restorative dentistry. Combined with his expertise in the field of modern dentistry, Dr. Cobb provides each patient with comprehensive dental care that results in long lasting, beautiful and healthy smiles.
