TREAT TMD & MYOFASCIAL DYSFUNCTIONS

Provide the relief your patients are looking for.

Treating TMD and other myofascial dysfunctions of the face and neck can be challenging. These problems are commonly associated with chronic headaches. Often these patients start their search for relief by consulting with their dentist. Restoring function to the TMJ and reducing soft tissue dysfunction at the jaw, face, and neck are key components to helping these patients.

Class IV laser therapy, via photobiomodulation, has been shown to quickly reduce pain and help injured tissue move through the stages of healing by stimulating mitochondrial activity. Laser is a powerful tool that can be used within a comprehensive plan of care to help treat TMD and headaches.

For dentists looking to treat these patients in their clinic, starting a laser program may be a valuable component to helping quickly reduce pain complaints and restore normal mechanics. As a cash-based modality, a well-run laser therapy program will not only improve patient outcomes, but can significantly improve clinic income.
