DENTAL PAIN THERAPY
39 million American adults are experiencing an orofacial pain known as Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). This type of dental pain is typically treated with injections, physical therapy, night guards and anti-inflammatory medications that could have side effects with long-term use. Now we have a new way of delivering healing therapy for facial, jaw and even neck pain. At Barton Oaks Dental Group we use the Epic laser System in Austin, Texas to relieve your TMJ pain. Epic Laser provides a therapeutic and non-invasive way to treat pain in a short period of time. Through a special handpiece attachment, the Epic Laser sends waves of energy between joints and muscular regions, temporarily increasing blood circulation and relieving pain caused by tension and muscle spasms. During this procedure, the tissue absorbs light and thereby alleviates pain.
Common Signs and Symptoms of Temporomandibular Disorder
- Facial pain
- Earaches or ringing of the ears
- Dull, chronic headaches or migraines
- Jaw clicking or popping sounds
- Jaw locking
- Uncomfortable bite
- Neck, shoulder and back pain
