Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has emerged as a valuable tool in dentistry for its diverse range of benefits. By delivering low-intensity light energy to targeted areas, LLLT can accelerate tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain. In dental procedures, LLLT promotes faster healing after surgeries such as extractions, implant placements, deep cavity treatment and periodontal treatments. It can also aid in managing conditions like temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) and oral ulcers. Moreover, LLLT offers a non-invasive and painless approach to dental care, making it well-tolerated by patients of all ages. With its ability to enhance healing and alleviate discomfort, low-level laser therapy has become an integral part of modern dental optimal oral health protocols, providing patients with optimal outcomes and improved oral health.

Low Level Laser

Low level laser is also known as cold laser and red/blue light laser - depending on the wavelength.  It reduces infammation and and stimulates repair of tissues at the cellular level by stimulating ATP. 

It can help sensitive, sore teeth. Move the lip aside and use the curved tip aimed at the tooth itself and the gum/bone above/below the tooth for 2 minutes, 2 times a day.

It is also helpful for sure jaw muscles and sore jaw joints - from clenching/grinding. Aim it at the affected area with the straight, wide beam for 5 minutes 2x day.

Low Level Laser

Similar to the one above but includes the blue low level laser spectrum - 460nm - to penetrate tissues deeper such as for the TMJs and the jaw muscles, especially the deeper medial and lateral pterygoids.

Red Light Therapy Mouthpiece

Works well if you have generalized tooth sensitivity such as from root exposure from recession.

Can also help gum inflammation such as pregnancy gingivitis. It is not a substitute for proper daily oral care but rather an complement/adjunct to it
