Terapia del Laser del Milenio

Millennium Laser Therapy machineEn sonrisas de DC, we are continually looking for the most up-to-date, cutting-edge treatments to provide our patients with the most comprehensive care. One such treatment we employ is the use of Cold Laser Therapy (Terapia del Laser del Milenio [MSL]) “Low Level Lasers” to treat temporomandibular joint (ATM) and orthodontic therapy.

MLS LaserCold laser therapy treats joint and muscle inflammation by using light therapy to stimulate the healing of facial muscles and tissue. Durante la terapia, la luz llega a la zona afectada, thereby reducing inflammation and enhancing production of more red blood cells in the area and enhancing the speed and quality of tissue repair. Terapia de láser frío ha demostrado ser eficaz en el alivio temporal y a largo plazo del dolor y las molestias asociadas con TMJ.

MLS Laser therapy aims to photo-bio-stimulate chemically damaged cells via specific wavelengths of light. When cells are chemically damaged they stimulate the pain cycle. Laser excites the kinetic energy within cells by transmitting healing stimuli known as photons. The skin absorbs these photons via a photo-chemical effect, not photo-thermal—which causes heat damage to the tissues.

Once photons reach the cells of the body, they promote a torrent of cellular activities. Laser therapy light floods the tissues with photons, energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This increases the body’s production of ATP (Adenosine-triphosphate), speeding up the healing process to reduce inflammation and repair damaged tissue.

Laser light can also elevate collagen formation substances to prevent the formation of scar tissues – a critical step in reducing long term disabling chronic myofascial pain syndromes. Patients get out of pain faster and heal at the same time.

A pesar del nombre de este tratamiento, terapia de láser frío no implica un congelamiento de rayo láser- o cualquier cambio de temperatura, En realidad. Láser frío no causa ninguna fluctuación en la temperatura del tejido corporal. La terapia de láser frío es no invasivo, sin dolor, altamente eficaz y lo más importante seguro. Terapia de láser frío cumple con todas las normas y requisitos establecidos por la Food and Drug Administration (POR LA FDA).

Studies have shown that cold laser therapy is most effective when multiple treatments are administered. The number of treatments required to achieve results varies from patient to patient. Following a comprehensive examination, Dr.. Cantante can discuss whether cold laser therapy might help alleviate your pain associated with TMJ or aide in your orthodontic therapy.
