Our dentists may recommend treating TMJ disorders or other problems with cold laser therapy. Cold laser therapy is a type of laser treatment used to help manage headaches, TMJ problems and other types of discomfort so that you can enjoy a healthier and more comfortable quality of life.

Cold laser therapy works by stimulating the healing of the muscle and joint tissues, reducing inflammation and improving your oral function. When we provide this type of treatment, our dentists will use low-level dental lasers to target specific areas of your jaw, face and head. These lasers apply light energy that penetrates deep into the tissue of the targeted area to produce relief from your discomfort immediately, stimulating cell growth and increasing blood flow in the treatment area to promote additional long-term benefits for your health and well-being.
While your treatment results occur almost immediately, you may need several treatment sessions to maximize the benefits of your cold laser treatment. Cold laser treatment sessions typically take about five to 10 minutes to complete.
Contact our office today if you have any questions about cold laser therapy or if you want to schedule an appointment with our experienced dentists.
