Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy is an exciting and relatively new treatment method in the dental field that can treat a variety of acute and chronic conditions noninvasively. Using the power of light energy, PBM treatments stimulate cell activity and blood circulation to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. PBM is sometimes referred to as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or cold lasers.
PBM treatments conducted at River Park Dental and Esthetics in Dublin, OH can help address the following conditions in and around the mouth and jaw:
- Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD), also known as TMJ pain
- Cold sores resulting from the herpes simplex virus
- Canker sores
- Wounds or pain following injuries or dental operations
If you are struggling with mouth or jaw pain, PBM may be right for you. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Phing Saurer and her team at River Park Dental and Esthetics.
