Cold Laser Therapy Promotes Healing for TMJ Patients
Dr. Grill specializes in the diagnosis of TMJ and provides nonsurgical treatment. In cases where surgery is needed, our dentist can make a referral. One very effective method of treatment is cold laser therapy. Since TMJ is the result of damage and the disorder itself causes damage, Dr. Grill uses laser therapy to promote healing. During treatment, the laser delivers light energy called photons to the cells, which encourage an increased production of Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP). The process helps restore damaged cells to a state of health. This treatment:Make Appointment
