The local clinic now offers state-of-the-art MLS laser as a non-invasive method of treating TMD-related pain. The system is being incorporated into the center’s 12 to 16-week TMJ therapy program, which is now achieving a 95% success rate in resolving symptoms.

Along with MLS laser therapy, Millennium Smiles has also recently introduced advanced biometric technology, known as joint vibrational analysis, to assist in the diagnosis of temporomandibular joint disorders. The combination of the two systems is part of an ongoing effort to improve diagnosis and treatment rates for what is a relatively common condition.
According to statistics reported by dentalcare.com, up to one-third of America’s population suffers from one or more TMD symptoms, with the greatest prevalence in the 25-44 age group. Indications of TMD can include pain in the jaw and/or face, difficulty chewing, ringing or stuffy ears, headaches and migraines, and pain in the neck and upper back.
While the temporomandibular joint is one of the most common sources of musculoskeletal discomfort, Millennium Smiles states that many people may not know that it’s the cause of their symptoms. The clinic’s ongoing adoption of advanced technologies is designed to reduce the impact of TMD on people’s lives, as well as preventing more serious complications.
“Failing to treat TMD can have detrimental effects on your oral health or overall health,” a clinic representative explained. “In addition to experiencing continued or increased pain in the jaw or face, you may lose the ability to chew effectively or even the ability to open your mouth at all. Our TMJ therapy is a reversible, noninvasive method that is recommended as the first line of defense.”

“The Millennium Smiles offices are very clean and beautiful, and it’s more like being at a relaxing spa than a dental practice,” one patient recently stated. “They use a lot of really high-tech equipment, but the more important thing is that Dr. Korous is excellent at what she does.
