Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

Statistics show that up to 12 percent of people in the UK will suffer the discomfort of temporomandibular joint disorder or some form of pain in the jaw joint during their lifetime.

The temporomandibular joints connect the jawbone (the mandible) and the skull (the temporal bone). The joint enables the opening and closing of the jaw. As such, it is critical for maintaining comfortable speech and eating. 

Reasons for pain in the jaw muscles

Many factors cause pain in the jaw muscles. Stress and anxiety can cause pain, while other forms of discomfort relate to physical injuries and trauma – such as a car accident causing joint injury. Some triggers are seemingly benign: prolonged, deep yawns, teeth grinding while asleep and even extended dental sessions requiring patients to maintain a wide open-mouthed position. 

Many studies found that the main reasons for pain in the jaw muscle are para-functional. That is to say, incorrect and overuse of the joint.  This can be caused by teeth grinding (bruxism) and clenching of the jaw. 

Chronic pain

Frequent clenching and grinding of the teeth can cause chronic pain in the jaw, headaches, and pain in the facial muscles. This phenomenon is known as Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) and temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ).

What are the symptoms of TMJ?

Pain in the jaw, alongside facial pain, ear pain, and headaches, can also lead to pain in the joint itself.

How can TMJ be treated?

Treatment of this disorder includes a combination of several options: Medication, physical therapy, a dental brace and nutritional changes such as eating softer foods and refraining from foods that put pressure on the joint, such as chewing gum.

Low-level laser therapy (also known as cold laser therapy or LLLT) is an alternative treatment that has proven to be effective in patients with chronic temporomandibular disorder (TMD) and temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ).

How does LLLT work?

LLLT uses light therapy at a cellular level. 

Laser therapy promotes blood circulation, thus increasing oxygen, glucose and various nutrients in the affected muscles. It stimulates the healing process of the body and speeds up recovery time.

The protons stimulate collagen production, enabling ligaments and tissues to grow stronger and faster. 

The laser reduces free radicals and reduces oxidative stress. 

B-Cure Laser increases cell metabolism and provides an efficient treatment of pain for the jaw joint (TMJ): 

Research and the evidence of two clinical studies in Italy demonstrate the efficacy of B-Cure Laser for treating this disorder.

A clinical study with 90 subjects carried out in Sapienza University of Rome, revealed that the efficacy of B-Cure Laser is identical to that of treatment with standard medication for pain reduction of the TMJ.

The outcome of the Rome study highlights the significance of B-Cure Laser’s non-invasive and safe treatment, which empowers people to manage TMJ pain at home with confidence that there are no side effects.

A study* of the treatment of pain in the TMJ with B-Cure Laser was effective in significantly reducing the level of pain intensity by over 50% in only two weeks. Meanwhile, a placebo group showed only an 8% reduction.

Upon concluding the treatment set the device for an addition 8 minutes and place it over the width of the jaw. Open the mouth slightly during treatment. This opens the joint and increases the efficacy of the beam penetration.

Treatment protocol

Place the device along the jaw joint, next to the ear for 8 minutes.
