What Is TMJ?
People often use the term “TMJ” to refer to any problem with the jaw joint, but that’s not entirely accurate. The TMJ, which stands for temporomandibular joint, is actually the joint that connects your jaw to the rest of your skull and allows you to open and close your mouth. These joints are some of the most intricate in the human body, so when they’re subjected to strain, it can cause serious discomfort. The problems that occur in and around that joint are called TMJ disorder, or TMD.
Laser TMJ Therapy
One way to treat severe cases of TMD is with laser therapy. Dr. Madry can apply a precise, low-level infrared light directly to the dysfunctional areas of the TMJs. The laser assists with blood flow and stimulates the body’s natural healing processes. As a result, it quickly reduces pain and inflammation without the need for surgery or medication. Better yet, laser TMJ therapy (also known as photobiomodulation) only takes a few minutes, and most patients find the experience to be completely painless.
