PBM (photobiomodulation) uses red, green and near infrared (NIR) light to modify body functions by improving the immune system so it can potentially attack viruses and help respiratory diseases. PBM does this by improving aging mitochrondria which improves cell energy. Over 4000 studies have shown that light heals. The full body LED light therapy bed uses light to reduce inflammation, detoxify cellular waste and free radicals, expand circulation, and increase energy. Professional sports franchises and all branches of the military utilize PBM to prevent mechanical injuries, speed recovery after competition, and improve peak performance in strength, speed and endurance.
People suffering from pain or illness report reduction in pain and illness after use of PBM.
Healthy people find that PBM optimizes physiological response.
There are THREE pillars of Action for PBM:
Healing wounds, deeper tissues & nerves
Reducing inflammation, edema, and chronic joint disorders
Inhibiting ATP production to reduce pain & improve neurological disorders
Energy to relieve pain
Like PBM, Focused Laser will help tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and reduce pain. Patients with jaw pain and TMD issues find relief from a targeted approach to their specific orofacial pain. Instead of undressing and lying in a bed, you are reclining in a dental chair with your safety glasses on and a warm blanket covering you, if wanted.
non-surgical laser use
The NightLase procedure, done with the Fotona in 1064 wavelength, tightens the palatal tissue to improve breathing at night (in patients with sleep-disordered breathing disorders).
In adults with sleep issues, Dr. Smith uses the laser to tighten collagen and to improve the connectivity of the muscular neuroreceptors of the throat. This leads to better control of the muscular relaxation threshold.
Irbium/NB Yag Fotona laser is used for removal of tethered oral tissues (TOTs).
ToTs include tongue ties, lip ties, and buccal ties. Ties interfere with feeding for babies and speech for all ages. In the case of tongue ties, keeps the tongue can not rest in the top of the mouth behind the front teeth. During sleep, a tied tongue can close off the airway causing you to stop or pause breathing and/or just make horrible snoring noises that wake you and your bed partner up during every night!
