TMJ Pain Therapy

Dental lasers may be used to quickly reduce pain and inflammation of the temporomandibular jaw joint.

TMJ disorders cause tenderness and pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) — the joint on each side of your head in front of your ears, where your lower jawbone meets your skull. This joint allows you to talk, chew and yawn.

Our unique wave length works as a topical heating device that helps to temporarily increase your blood circulation as well as to temporarily relax your muscles. Our laser is then able to temporarily relieve joint pain and stiffness.

Treatment takes approximately 10 minutes for each area, so it’s fast and convenient for people with busy schedules. Patients often come in for a series of 2-6 treatments, once every 2-4 days. Sometimes even fewer treatments are needed.
