The K7 Evaluation System uses three separate components for comprehensive testing of jaw joint movement.
After TENS therapy, Dr. Grimshaw uses the K7 system to determine if your jaw muscles are fully relaxed.
This comprehensive diagnostic tool is used to evaluate your bite (the way your teeth meet), and the way your jaw functions while opening and closing your mouth.
The K7 system record sounds and movements, as well as measure the tension in your chewing muscles.
When your muscles are relaxed and your bite is in alignment, Dr. Grimshaw takes an additional impression of your teeth for comparison and to send to the lab that fabricates orthotic appliances used in TMJ treatment.
