Laser TMJ therapyLaser TMJ therapy uses the latest technology to treat a condition that affects many people around the world. In the United States alone, TMJ disorders affect over 10 million Americans. Patients are mostly women between the ages of 20 and 40 years old. TMJ pain can result from trauma to the TMJ joint, but for many, the cause of their pain is difficult to diagnose and therefore is extremely difficult to treat. There are many different types of therapies available, such as exercise or anti-inflammatory medicine, but most of these do not produce the kind of results that the laser treatment for TMJ can achieve. If you are interested in getting your quality of life back, being pain-free from your TMJ disorder, and want to see results, it is advisable that you call us to make an appointment and find out if laser TMJ therapy is right for you. There is no reason to continue to live with the discomfort and pain that a TMJ condition causes when you can schedule an appointment and find out if our therapy will actually help to resolve your issues.

Laser TMJ therapy uses state-of-the-art laser equipment, which is specifically designed to provide targeted TMJ treatment. We are specifically trained to treat the jaw and face, including TMJ disorder, is in charge of using the laser, providing precision therapy, and ensuring that your condition is significantly reduced. Unlike more broad-stroke therapy, laser TMJ therapy is extremely targeted and focuses all of the energy of the laser onto the condition. Laser TMJ therapy uses light protons, also known as light energy, to penetrate deep into the tissue surrounding the temporomandibular joint. While the laser light protons are used to penetrate the tissue surrounding the TMJ, they are also penetrating the joint itself. This laser energy then works to decrease the inflammation deep within the tissues and produces an instant result of relief for you, the patient. A frequent complaint from patients who suffer from TMJ disorders is the ongoing headaches. Once a patient experiences laser TMJ therapy, that headache is almost immediately relieved.

The lasers used in laser TMJ therapy are cold lasers. All cold laser machines are approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a medical device that has proven to be both safe and effective in the treatment of pain. Essentially, the Hollywood glamorized idea of lasers burning holes through things does not apply when you are getting TMJ laser therapy because we will be using a laser that is completely cold. In fact, our lasers operate with surgical precision, as high-energy lasers pinpoint laser light directly onto the TMJ and surrounding tissue. It is a perfectly safe and comfortable procedure that immediately helps relieve your pain. There is an important side effect that goes with using laser light therapy in order to help with your TMJ pain. When you use the cold laser, it also stimulates the healing of muscle and tissues. As the laser hits the target area, it also works to stimulate cell growth and increases the blood flow, which is a long-term benefit. There is even an additional benefit because the laser works at a subsequent release on the TMJ joint tissue for long-lasting relief.
