Oralase: A Revolutionary Approach to Treating TMJ and Facial Pain

TMJ and facial pain can stem from various factors, including trauma, habits like clenching or grinding, bite abnormalities, or even prolonged dental procedures. While some instances are transient, others can persist for years, deeply affecting the quality of life for those afflicted. Among the most challenging cases to treat are those involving jaw joint arthritis and bony changes, often necessitating surgical intervention.

Historically, treatments revolved around dental appliances, exercises, and medications—with varying levels of success. However, over the past 18 years, there’s been a shift. At Boynton Laser Dental & Wellness Center, we’ve harnessed the power of lasers to bring significant relief in pain and improved mobility for our patients. Our most recent evolution in this realm involves the Oralase/Babylase program, pioneered by Dr. Darick Nordstrom.

But what exactly is Oralase?

From birth to adulthood, our body undergoes a series of maturational events. Some of these, like Primitive Protective Reflexes, are well-documented. But it’s the unnoticed ones, disrupted by environmental influences and traumas, that can lead to issues. These disruptions or traumas can result in sleep disturbances, relationship errors, chronic pain, and more. Interestingly, they can also influence natural oro-facial growth.

The beauty of the Oralase Technique is its understanding that the oro-facial zone plays a pivotal role in our body’s integrative processes. By employing specific laser wavelengths and techniques, Oralase stimulates sensations that activate a primitive response in the body. This can lead to the release of oxytocin and the opening of a ‘Limbic Window’, which lets the brain coordinate memories with cerebellar patterns, thereby allowing it to process old traumas and developmental inconsistencies.

OraLase harnesses the potential of invisible light energy, directing it to body areas beleaguered by pain, compromised mobility, or sub-optimal function. Far from a conventional therapy, OraLase focuses on holistic healing, not just targeting the immediately afflicted region.

In simpler terms, Oralase aims to restore the body’s balance, addressing the underlying causes of TMJ and facial pain. The approach doesn’t just stop at pain relief—it endeavors to rectify the root cause of the ailment.
