Author: Kulekcioglu S, Sivrioglu K, Ozcan O, Parlak M

Randomized placebo-controlled study to investigate the efficacy of LLLT in TMD. Patients in the treatment group received 15 treatments of 3 J/cm2 at 904nm.  Both groups improved in all measures over the study period. The laser group had significantly better improvement in the number of tender points and all range of motion measures.
