The practice now uses a biometric system, known as joint vibrational analysis, to assist in more effective and timely diagnosis of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD). MLS laser therapy has been introduced as a non-invasive first-line treatment approach, with a reported success rate of 95% in resolving TMD symptoms.

With the recent update, Millennium Smiles furthers its goal of increasing TMD diagnosis and treatment rates in the wider Frisco region. For those experiencing symptoms, TMJ-related appointments are now available at the center’s Main Road and Lebanon Road clinics.
Temporomandibular joint disorders can cause a range of localized symptoms, such as pain in the jaw, aching near the ears, difficulty chewing, and locking of the jaw. More generalized effects can include headaches/migraines, neck and upper back pain, and tingling fingers, making the condition difficult to diagnose for some individuals.
Millennium Smiles’ recently adopted Joint Vibrational Analysis technology uses sensitive listening equipment to detect the friction caused by TMD. Clients wear a head-phone like device, and the non-invasive procedure can be completed in as little as 5-10 minutes. Similarly, the new MLS laser therapy offers a pain-free and reversible way to address symptoms.
“Our TMJ therapy is a reversible, noninvasive method that is recommended as the first line of defense for TMJ issues,” a clinic representative explained. “Treatment in our Frisco, TX office usually lasts 12-16 weeks and has a 95% success rate of addressing reported symptoms and weaning off of daytime orthotics.”
