Fotona LightWalker® Dental Laser
The Fotona LightWalker® Dental Laser is one of the least invasive, most effective advances in dental technology. The Fotona LightWalker® Dental Laser combines high-speed pulses of water and laser energy to gently remove hard and soft tissues in the mouth. This exciting advance has applications ranging from removing decay and preparing cavities for fillings to gum reshaping and other soft-tissue procedures. In many cases, the extreme precision and gentle action of the laser system mean that there is no need for anesthesia, reducing anxiety and discomfort while increasing the quality of outcomes for our patients.
Dental lasers have been shown to be safe and effective for treating both children and adults.
Pain Management – Trigger Point Injections
Injection of trigger points with a local anesthetic is a relatively simple, cost-effective treatment that often produces an almost immediate decrease in pain. In addition, it can provide long-term pain relief and increased range of motion, thereby enabling patients to resume normal activities.
While a trigger point injection can be performed as a standalone treatment, it is important to note that these injections achieve the best results for patients when they are combined with other treatment options. This treatment is a reliable solution for patients experiencing myofascial pain and can help provide relief in many cases of TMJ. Trigger point injections are also viable for patients experiencing chronic headaches, reducing both the severity and the frequency.
