Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been shown to have numerous beneficial applications. Over 2,500 studies have shown health improvement through the use of low-level laser therapy. Our holistic dentist, Dr. James M. Heltzel, uses it in our dental practice because of its beneficial action with regard to treatment and relaxation of muscles of mastication or chewing muscles (see description of DDS syndrome) and irritated and painful teeth. Sometimes low-level laser therapy can even take the place of local anesthetic because of its reduction of pain by the body’s production of endorphins, according to Dr. Morton Walker. As a natural, biological dental practice, we are pleased to offer low-level laser therapy to improve both your oral health and overall wellness. LLLT has a much reduced negative impact on the body’s wellbeing when compared to other dental treatment options, and it can even have positive benefits.
