Paper Abstract

Electromagnetic energy of laser light has some typical properties which are found to be a premise for discussions on laser irradiation abilities to control the severe and chronic disorders in TMJ. In world literature PDT application is recommended when soft tissues in TMJ are damaged, in cases of degenerative diseases of discus articularis, medial and lateral distensions of joint ligaments, chronic inflammatory processes in TMJ, occlusion trauma, etc. The aim of our clinical study was to analyze the theoretical achievements up to now in depth and basing on our clinic al observations suggest new methods guaranteeing high therapeutic efficacy of Photodynamic therapy.
