A Non-Invasive Approach to Restorative Dentistry
At Divine Smiles, MLS laser therapy represents a breakthrough in addressing dental discomfort by reducing inflammation, managing pain, and promoting better healing and tissue restoration following dental procedures. We offer this innovative treatment option as part of our ongoing commitment to providing the highest-quality dental care to Woburn, MA, and Middlesex County patients.
Healing with Light
MLS laser therapy is a non-invasive and cutting-edge pain management technique harnessing the power of low-level laser therapy to effectively alleviate pain and reduce inflammation. Its most common applications are in addressing conditions like arthritis and sciatica. MLS laser therapy is used in dentistry to alleviate sensitivity, improve gum health, help with TMJ pain, and promote healing after dental procedures. Occasionally referred to as cold laser therapy, MLS laser therapy distinguishes itself by utilizing two therapeutic wavelengths: 808 nanometers, renowned for its anti-endemic and anti-inflammatory properties, and 905 nanometers, celebrated for its analgesic effects.
Breaking Free from Pain
MLS laser therapy sessions may vary in frequency and duration depending on the specific condition being treated. One notable advantage of MLS laser therapy is its minimal side effects, as the laser is non-invasive and gentle on the tissues. Dr. Clancy may recommend adding MLS laser therapy to your treatment for a variety of reasons:
Pain reduction: Reduces pain related to dental surgeries, orthodontic treatments, dentin hypersensitivity, and other causes.
Gum health: Helps disinfect periodontal pockets and treat gum disease.
Ulcer care: Encourages faster healing of various kinds of ulcers on the soft tissues of the mouth.
TMD treatment: May lessen pain of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), known as temporomandibular disorder (TMD).
Bone remodeling: MLS may encourage bone growth to help restore the jaw bone or support the placement of permanent dental implants. Consulting with Dr. Clancy can help determine if MLS laser therapy is a good option for your needs.
Targeting Pain at Its Source
During your consultation for MLS Laser Pain Therapy at Divine Smiles, you will embark on a journey to explore the potential benefits of this innovative pain management and tissue healing technique. Dr. Clancy will thoroughly assess your specific condition, taking into account your medical history and previous treatments. We will explain the MLS laser therapy process in detail, discussing the expected duration and frequency of sessions based on your unique needs.
Laser Pain Therapy for Lasting Relief
MLS laser therapy employs higher-powered Class 4 lasers to manage pain and support healing. Unlike precision-focused lasers, the MLS laser encompasses a broader range, enabling it to deeply but gently penetrate the mouth’s tissues. The amalgamation of dual wavelengths combines potent pain relief with remarkable anti-inflammatory capabilities. The laser promotes enhanced circulation within the treatment area, facilitating the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the region. This surge in blood flow encourages tissue healing, cellular repair, and healthy tissue growth.
MLS Laser Pain Therapy can yield remarkable results for individuals seeking relief from dental pain and more effective healing. Patients often report a noticeable reduction in pain and inflammation. As the therapy stimulates tissue healing and cell repair, it contributes to a gradual but significant improvement in the targeted area. While individual experiences may vary, many individuals find long-lasting relief from chronic pain, enhanced recovery, improved oral health, and an overall enhanced quality of life.
After MLS Laser Pain Therapy, patients typically experience minimal to no downtime. It's common to feel immediate improvements, but the full benefits may become more pronounced over a series of sessions. Dr. Clancy will guide you on the most appropriate steps to optimize your recovery and maintain the positive results of MLS Laser Pain Therapy.
MLS laser therapy is generally painless. Patients may feel a mild warming sensation during the treatment, but no discomfort is associated with the laser therapy.
The number of MLS laser therapy sessions required can vary depending on the specific condition and the individual's response to the treatment. Some patients may experience significant relief after just a few sessions, while others may require a more extended treatment plan. Dr. Clancy will assess your progress and recommend appropriate sessions to address your pain effectively.
