TMJ Laser Therapy
Dental lasers can be used to treat temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ). This bite disorder causes pain in the teeth, jaw, and facial muscles. To help alleviate pain and pressure in the face, we can use a dental laser to target the facial muscles. The laser beam is an infrared light applied to painful areas of the face, typically in areas where tense muscles are located. Applying the laser reduces pain and inflammation in the area.
