LAFTR (Laser Assisted Functional Therapeutic Release)

Dynamic Dental Wellness | Neural Therapy, Low Dose Digital X-Ray and Sleep Apnea Appliances

Laser assisted functional therapeutic release (LAFTR) is using a specific laser wavelength to stimulate biological processes below the skin's surface. Just as plants use sunlight to photosynthesize carbohydrates in their cells, laser light stimulates the formation and release of our body's own healing chemical compounds. In LAFTR, the laser energy has a stimulation effect on tissues by increasing cellular energy and cellular metabolism, both are very positive events for anyone. The laser also stimulates the production of collagen, as well as stimulating lymphatic flow, which helps to eliminate toxins and excess fluids from the tissues. By increasing the activity of fibroblasts in the connective tissue collagen is produced, aiding the repair process and stimulating proper tissue formation to heal inflamed tissue. In addition, the one of the best applications and results of this particular laser treatment is to loosen the tight fascia in the area of the floor of the mouth by activating hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the fluid that helps your connective tissue or fascia be lubricated and move easily. The laser does this by generating a warm laser energy. There are NO harmful side effects from this type of laser therapy.
