How Does MLS Laser Therapy Relieve TMJ Disorders?

Beauty,Concept,Of,Young,Asian,Woman.There are two temporomandibular joints connecting your jaw to your skull. TMJ disorders refer to the pain caused by these joints and cover a broad range of approximately 30 symptoms, including migraines, jaw stiffness, shoulder, neck, and back pain, earaches, etc. MLS laser therapy is a painless, non-surgical option for addressing these symptoms.

According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, anywhere from 5 to 12%  of the population suffer from TMJ Disorders.

Why We Rely on MLS Laser Therapy for TMJ Pain

Aside from offering cosmetic and general dentistry, Dr. Adler is also a practitioner of neuromuscular dentistry. This field of dentistry corrects jaw misalignment and how that misalignment affects the muscles in your head, neck, shoulders, and back.

Dr. Adler and his team use MLS laser therapy to relieve the pain caused by TMJ disorders. Simply put, MLS laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that relies upon two wavelengths projected through a robotic laser.

One wavelength reduces swelling, while the other focuses on your nerves and soft tissue to relieve any pain you’re experiencing. Depending upon the severity of that pain, multiple sessions may be required.

Isn’t MLS Laser Therapy Painful?

There is nothing painful about MLS laser therapy. This is a common misconception because people associate lasers with heat. The patented technology synchronizes the wavelengths to only penetrate a couple of centimeters below your skin. You may feel warm, but there won’t be any pain.

Aren’t MLS Laser Therapies Long?

Depending upon your ailment and the area affected, a session could be completed in less than 15 minutes. Of course, this all depends upon the extent of your pain and where it’s located. The number of sessions varies, but most patients benefit after the first or second treatment.

How Safe is MLS Laser Therapy?

MLS laser therapy is very safe and has been cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It is an ideal alternative to surgery, risky chiropractic procedures, addictive painkillers, and unreliable over-the-counter medications. There are no side effects and no downtime or recovery needed.
