Millennium Smiles (972-987-4899), based in Frisco, Texas, and serving McKinney and surrounding areas, has updated its treatments for patients suffering from Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Dysfunction.
The clinic now offers patients an advanced non-invasive treatment for TMJ pain management, MLS Laser Therapy – also known as cold laser or low-level laser therapy (LLLT). MLS Laser Therapy identifies and blocks the source of the patient’s pain while promoting cellular repair and growth.

Millennium Smiles, a full-service general and cosmetic dental clinic based in Frisco, now provides MLS Laser therapy for patients whose temporomandibular joint dysfunction has caused chronic myofascial pain, a typical consequence of TMJ disorders (TMD). The technology, also employed for many types of pain management outside of dental procedures, offers a host of benefits in its application – including decreased inflammation, improved blood circulation for tissue repair and faster healing, and no side effects. Additionally, research shows that laser therapy helps to improve nerve function and develop collagen/muscle tissue.
The TMJ disorders market is anticipated to grow at almost 4.5% annually over the next five years, as the increasing incidence of dental health problems in an aging population, coupled with rapid technological advances in imaging and diagnostics, drive the market. More than 30 conditions collectively known as TMJ disorders result in discomfort and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles that move the jaw. In the US, around 10 million people suffer from TMJ issues. The symptoms include tenderness or pain in the jaw, headaches, dizziness, aching facial pain, and pain while chewing.
Millennium Smiles, a 5-star practice led by Dr. Dunia Korous, cautions patients that a failure to treat TMD can have a detrimental effect on the patient’s oral health and overall well-being. Increased back pain could occur, along with a loss of hearing and balance, and increased frequency and intensity of headaches. TMD is also closely related to Obstructive Sleep Apnea and other sleep/breathing disorders.
The clinic offers a comprehensive range of dental services, including cosmetic and implant dentistry, periodontal and whitening treatments, and emergency dentistry. It also provides custom-fitted oral appliance therapy for patients suffering from TMJ-related sleep apnea.
One patient commented: “I’ve never really been a fan of visiting the dentist, but the staff at Millennium Smiles were so accommodating, considerate, and very sweet. I walked in very hesitant and came out absolutely lovin’ the work she did on my teeth. Thank you Millennium Smiles for putting a smile on my face.”
