Our dentists may use an ultrasound machine to promote healing and provide a natural solution for managing discomfort. This comfort option is a simple holistic way to promote healing and help you regain your oral health and smile.
Ultrasound therapy involves the use of ultrasonic sound waves, which produce heat and increase the blood flow in the affected areas. This promotes healing and relieves long-term strain to improve oral health and function, especially when treating a TMJ disorder. Ultrasound therapy also reduces sensitivity of trigger points in the muscles and reduces scar tissue that may have formed as a result of past injuries or procedures.
