Low-level or low-intensity laser therapy is the use of monochromatic light emissions from a 250-milliwatt (or less) laser diode to treat mouth and jaw problems. The light source is positioned directly against the skin at the site of the injury, inflammation, or pain so that the energy can permeate the tissue. The laser light restores cellular function and enhances the body’s natural healing processes.
Eltek Dental is fully equipped to provide laser therapy as treatment for a variety of dental conditions, including TMJ and sensitive teeth. It can also be used to speed healing and alleviate pain after tooth extractions or root canal therapy.
I'm ashamed to admit that I hadn't been to the dentist in over 7 years. When I went this time, I was
convinced I was going to get some bad news. The team was very informative and thorough as they
examined my teeth. Turns out, there was nothing too bad to worry about. Between the x-rays,
photographs and cleaning I learned more about my teeth in two hours than I had probably all my
life. It was a great experience and I will definitely be coming back here more often!
