Dr. Jay Gerber with Kevin Houck of Myotronics
Serena Eddy, CTA, COA, NT
Dr. Gerber has used Myotronics instrumentation since 1984 and has treated thousands of patients using the principles of neuromuscular dentistry. An experienced clinician and teacher, he will share his secrets to successful diagnosis and treatment using Bio-electrical instrumentation. Assisting Dr. Gerber is Ms. Serena Eddy who has worked with Dr. Gerber for over 30 years as a Neuromuscular Technician and has also instructed staff courses for 20 years. This is an intense “hands-on” course and all participants will be taking bite registrations.
Hands on training highlights our courses.
Measuring and recording mandibular function and masticatory muscle status adds invaluable information to the diagnostic process and is critical to neuromuscular dentistry. Objective information about TM joint status further adds to the clinician's data. Evaluation procedures must be accomplished in such a way that the apparatus itself does not affect the patient's function and must not impede the clinician's access to the mouth for bite registration or other procedures. Myotronics evaluation equipment has always been designed with those criteria in mind.
The K7 Evaluation System provides the dental clinician or researcher with three technologies for measuring, displaying and storing objective data on physiologic and anatomical status and function: jaw tracking, electromyography and joint sonography. This objective data enhances the doctor's diagnostic and treatment considerations with information not previously available.
