Overview

Thermal Therapy is a time tested approach for the treatment of pain and swelling. We offer a variety of products to allow oral and craniofacial patients to effectively apply heat and cold therapies to their face and jaw. The most extensive is the cold-compression cooler for patients recovering for jaw, joint, orthognathic, or reconstructive surgery. The Cold-compression system uses the JawBra compressive wrap to help reduce swelling, while the cooler pumps cold or hot water through pads in the wrap to further moderate swelling and to reduce pain.
