Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Pain Laser Treatment

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is one of the most common causes of jaw pain, jaw lock, jaw popping, and jaw clicking. Other symptoms of TMJ may include pain or tenderness in the face, jaw joint area, neck and shoulders, and in or around the ear when you chew, speak, or open your mouth wide.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, dysfunction or syndrome includes pain and dysfunction of the muscles of mastication (the muscles that move the jaw) and the temporomandibular joints (the joints which connect the mandible to the skull). The most important feature is pain, followed by restricted mandibular movement and noises from the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) during jaw movement.

Relief for TMJ pain is the key to living life again. If you are searching for TMJ pain relief, then let laser treatment be your pain reliever. Combining the healing power of micro-current electrical therapy with a low-level medical laser, this method facilitates pain relief and healing at a cellular level. This treatment method is generally used to reduce the pain and inflammation, as well as increase range of motion to the neck and in opening the mouth.

The laser therapy can stop bleeding and seals lymphatic and nerve endings, thereby by-passing inflammation and the usual discomfort that is associated with inflammation during healing.

The benefits are:

  • Reduction of muscular pain
  • Faster and more efficient
  • Essentially painless
  • More sterile (laser tip sterilizes itself in operation)
  • Less invasive
  • Precise and conserves healthy tissues
