EMG – Myofascial Pain

Beautiful Smiles and Healthy Muscles

Surface EMG is the worldwide standard method for recording muscle-specific activity in skeletal muscles. It has been proven reliable in numerous studies over many years and is a clinical procedure that can easily be performed in any dental office. This information is invaluable to the clinician who hopes to create beautiful dentistry that works with the patient’s physiology for optimum results.
SEMG is the only way to objectively measure the actions and reactions of the muscles of the head and neck. This provides Dr Patel the ability to test his treatments and bite positions before finalizing the treatment position.

Highest Noise Rejection Guaranteed

Historically, electrical noise reduction has been an extremely vital component of any system that is attempting to measure the minute electrical signals emanating from muscles. Hundreds of electronic devices in the office give off electrical signals that can be mistakenly recorded and interpreted as muscle activity by lesser systems. BioEMG II is the only SEMG system to Unconditionally Guarantee a Common Mode Rejection Ration of >129db. This is the highest noise reduction ratio of any in-office craniofacial SEMG system ever sold.

High-tech Made Easy

The BioEMG II incorporates intuitive displays that are extremely fast and easy to interpret over conventional systems that simply spit out the microvolt levels of each channel. Now Dr Patel can design a system to automatically categorize muscles based upon the quality and quantity of their behavior. Based upon these thresholds, the system will automatically show which muscles are resting properly or hyperactive. It provides immediate evaluation of the synergy, symmetry and timing of craniofacial muscle firing to expedite the process of evaluating mandibular muscle function.
