Abstract

Laser therapy is commonly used in the management of musculoskeletal disorders. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been found to possess analgesic activity which promotes its use in various painful conditions. Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) are treated by various modes of management. However, LLLT appears to be an attractive noninvasive mode of treatment for these group of patients. So, need was felt to review the potential uses of lasers in patients affected by TMDs. A literature review for English language articles was conducted using the PubMed and Google Search engine using the following search terms ‘laser’, ‘TMDs’, ‘dentistry’, ‘therapy’, ‘musculoskeletal’. Low-level laser therapy appears to be a promising mode of management in relieving the symptoms of these patients.
