The light energy from a laser can reduce pain, swelling and inflammation, accelerate healing in damaged tissues, relax muscles, and stimulate nerve regeneration. Laser light will also reduce stiffness and treatment will often lead to a faster return to normal joint and muscle function. The laser technology has been proven to be remarkably safe, painless and effective in treating both acute injuries and chronic pain of various kinds. It has been shown to be an extremely useful addition to our treatment.
4 key points:
- The laser reduces pain and inflammation with no side effects
Unlike medications, laser therapy reduces pain without undesirable side effects. Many EGO Dental patients report long-lasting pain relief. While the number of treatments required may vary depending on the severity of the condition, many patients experience lasting relief after only a couple of treatments.
- The laser can be used for both acute and chronic problems
The laser is particularly effective when it is administered as soon as possible following injury (assuming there is no active haemorrhaging). The faster the inflammation is reduced and the healing process can begin, the better. In the case of acute injury, laser therapy helps restore the body to normal function quicker.
With chronic conditions, laser therapy is used most often to help combat persistent pain and inflammation.
- Treatments Feel Good
One common question related to laser therapy is, “What does it feel like?” Depending on the laser, it can create little to no sensation or it can create a gentle, soothing warmth. Many patients receiving laser therapy treatments report enjoying the experience, especially when a massage-ball treatment head is used to deliver what is often referred to as a “laser massage.”
- Treatments Are Fast
Treatments are quick, usually 5-10 minutes depending on the size, depth, and acuteness of the condition being treated. High-power lasers are able to deliver a lot of energy in a small amount of time, so therapeutic dosages are achieved quickly. For people with packed schedules, patients and clinicians alike, fast and effective treatments are a must.
