TMJ laser therapy works to relieve discomfort, inflammation and swelling of the jaw and surrounding muscles. When low-level laser therapy is applied, the light frequencies of the laser penetrate deep into the tissues surrounding your temporomandibular joints (jaw joints). This helps to reduce inflammation and to rejuvenate the surrounding tissue by triggering your body’s natural healing process. This procedure is noninvasive and nonsurgical, working to comfortably and safely improve your health, oral function and quality of life.

Benefits of TMJ laser therapy include:

  • Works at a cellular level to promote and accelerate healing
  • Reduces long-lasting pain and discomfort
  • Reduces pain and inflammation without the use of medications
  • Works to speed up recovery time as well as improve the health of your jaw
  • Helps improve your range of movement and physical function
  • Available for all ages
  • Quick and comfortable to perform
  • Completely noninvasive and nonsurgical
