Calm the Dental Anxiety with MLS Laser Therapy
Going to the dentist does not have to be synonymous with pain. Because of past negative experiences or worry about a dental procedure being uncomfortable, 85% of Americans have some level of dental anxiety. This anxiety can make those who really need dental care avoid going to the dentist which can cause them to develop even worse dental issues.
At Advanced Dentistry of Amarillo, Dr. Miller, Dr. Esler, and each member of our staff work to educate our guests about every possible option to increase comfort. By employing the new state-of-the-art MLS Laser in our practice, we have the ability to reduce pain and inflammation almost immediately.
What is MLS Laser Therapy?
MLS Laser Therapy, sometimes called Cold Laser Therapy, is an advanced, non-invasive treatment for pain management. “MLS” stands for Multi-wave Locked System, meaning multiple light wavelengths are used within the same laser. Because of these multiple wavelengths, this laser is able to simultaneously block multiple sources of pain in one area, as well as initiate cellular repair and growth in the area.
MLS Laser Therapy works because the laser boosts cellular energy, allowing your tissue to absorb nutrients more quickly while also increasing blood circulation, which means bodily nutrients are delivered to the painful area more quickly as well. It’s these processes that help promote fast healing and recovery in patients.
MLS Laser Therapy treats sports injuries to muscles and joints, nerve pain, arthritis, and on a more dental-specific level - tooth pain, shoulder/neck pain related to a bad bite, and TMJ joint pain. We also use it during our TMJ/Smile Makeover treatment protocols to help relax and reset sore, damaged muscles before taking the bite we will restore your mouth too. We have been getting incredible results using this!
Treatment with the MLS Laser takes only 10 minutes, with the number of treatments needed customized to your level of pain and discomfort.
