If you’re suffering from pain associated with a dry socket, you know just how debilitating this condition can be. When it can take up to a full week for your discomfort to begin to abate, your quality of life can begin to take the toll. With our low level laser therapy at Skaggs Chiropractic LLC in Joplin, MO, you can experience faster, more effective relief from your dry socket pain and get back to doing what you love. 

Dry Sockets

A dry socket can develop after a dental extraction. Typically, a blood clot should form over the empty socket and protect the nerve until the healing process has begun. If the blood clot becomes damaged or displaced, the underlying bones and nerves can be exposed, causing severe pain that can start just a few days after the dental extraction. Traditional treatments involving pain relievers and flushing only stave off the worst of the pain.

Low Level Laser Therapy

Low level laser therapy refers to an advanced chiropractic technique that involves the application of non-invasive light energy to the affected area. Also known as cold laser therapy, this process can promote the accelerated regeneration of damaged tissue and reduce inflammation. By speeding up the healing process, low level laser therapy can decrease your dry socket pain faster than regular treatments. 

Backed By Science

Multiple researchers have proven the efficacy of low level laser therapy for the treatment of dry sockets. In a study published by Clinical Oral Investigations, the patients that received the application of low level laser therapy to dry sockets demonstrated a significant decrease of their pain levels. In addition, the healing process began sooner in patients treated with low level laser therapy than in the patients who were treated with traditional methods.
