Cold Laser Therapy

Low level laser therapy is a safe, painless approach for treating TMJ pain.

Low-Level Laser Therapy for TMD

Mild levels of TMJ pain generally go away on their own. But for those cases where the pain doesn’t subside, or in instances where the pain becomes chronic, normal therapies won’t do.  Dr. Krish offers cold laser therapy to treat TMJ pain and inflammation.  Improve cellular metabolism, raise blood flow, stimulate and more to help relieve pain and speed the healing process.

Cold laser therapy involves focusing a laser beam at low levels at the site of the TMJ disorder.  The infrared light heats up the tissue, which causes a number of things to occur:

  • The heated area experienced increased blood flow, which boosts the amount of oxygen, glucose and nutrients supplied to the affected region.
  • The laser’s protons stimulate collagen production, which can strengthen ligaments and tissues and help speed growth.
  • Cellular metabolism at the site is sped up, which can reduce pain and help the nerves near the jaw disk heal.

Low level laser therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation without the use of medications.  It can speed up recovery time and improve the overall health of your jaw.
