Photobiomodulation therapy (PBM) is a type of low-level laser therapy (LLLT). It is a light therapy which uses lasers or LEDs to improve tissue repair and reduce pain and inflammation in the area where the beam is applied. When you receive this treatment, our dentists will place the light laser near or in contact with the skin tissue in the treatment area. The light energy will then penetrate tissues to interact with cells. This treatment works to:
- Accelerate wound healing and tissue regeneration
- Increase circulation
- Reduce inflammation
- Reduce pain
- Restore normal cellular function
Our dentists will typically recommend this treatment following oral surgery, to relieve pain and discomfort from TMJ, to heal oral lesions or to improve existing conditions such as numb lips. We will work closely with you to determine if PBM is the best option for you and create a customized treatment plan that meets your needs.
We invite you to call us today for more information about photobiomodulation therapy and to schedule an appointment with our experienced dentists.
