Phototherapy is an effective treatment for many musculoskeletal and nerve conditions, but what about its application in dentistry?

Dentists are catching on to the efficacy of phototherapy devices to treat dental and jaw disorders.

A study in the International Journal of Dental and Health Sciences states that phototherapy is an effective treatment for:

  • Dentin hypersensitivity

  • Post extraction socket/post trauma sites

  • Post herpetic neuralgia

  • Wound healing in dentoalveolar abscess, gingivitis and periapical granuloma

  • Temporomandibular joint disorders

  • Post oncology- mucositis

  • dermatitis, post surgery healing

  • Trigmenal neuralgia
