Terms and Conditions

These ‘Terms and Conditions’ are designed to maximize the test’s accuracy and usefulness.  You agree to the following when purchasing your TMJ ScaleTM Patient Self-Test: 

  • The TMJ Scale Patient Self-Test is scientifically designed to produce highly accurate predictions regarding the presence and severity of the class of disorders known as temporomandibular joint disorders (aka ‘TMJ’) and associated problems.
  • This test’s accuracy, reliability and usefulness have been repeatedly demonstrated and documented in extensive published scientific research in many of the most respected scientific and clinical journals in this field.
  • Since no diagnostic screening test can always be 100% accurate, you will use the information and statements in the Report you receive as suggestions rather than conclusions and no final decisions or actions you take regarding your problem will be based solely on the results of this test.
  • Regardless of test results it is always advisable to consider seeking professional help for symptoms or concerns about a problem you are experiencing. Therefore, while we believe this test may be very helpful to you, you will not use it as a substitute for a thorough evaluation by a healthcare provider or specialist when that seems appropriate.

  • You will set aside at least 15-20 minutes of uninterrupted time to take the test.
  • This test is designed to be completed in one sitting.  If you are unable to complete it, you can finish it later by Logging on with a User ID and Password that you will create at the beginning of the test.  However, the longer you wait to complete the test the lower its accuracy may be.
