Dental and Maxillofacial Surgery
Hilotherapy is highly beneficial for reducing pain, swelling and bruising following dental and maxillofacial surgery. Many studies have been carried out looking at the use of Hilotherapy following maxillofacial procedures. These have shown reduced swelling, improved patient comfort, reduced analgesia requirements and reduced length of stay in hospital.
Procedures where Hilotherapy has been used effectively include:
– Bimaxillary osteotomies
– Orthognathic and jaw surgeries
– Wisdom tooth removal
– TMJ procedures
– Facial trauma
– Facial feminisation
– Complex extractions
Most patients using Hilotherm to recover from dental and maxillofacial procedures will only need to use the treatment for a relatively short period of time. Our devices are available to rent on a weekly basis. Online bookings can be made by clicking the button below.

Would 100% recommend. I recently underwent major surgery and my husband hired a machine for my recovery. The machine controlled the swelling and pain and worked wonders through my sleepless nights. Ice packs just didn’t cut it for me as I could only get around 20 mins of use at a time with ice packs.
Thank you for assisting in my speedy recovery.

My daughter used for a week after upper and lower jaw surgery. It meant that she could snooze during the day and at night with a ‘cool face’. Service was exceptional. Really useful advice given.

I must say that the Hilotherapy machine is worth every penny. I came out with no bruising and very little swelling after having double jaw surgery. It really helped in keeping my face cool and virtually pain-free. I would recommend this equipment to anyone and, in fact, have already recommended it to friends about to go for ankle and knee surgery. I would also say that for anyone suffering from migraines this is a fantastic piece of machinery that really helps with the pain.

We found the whole process of ordering the Hilotherapy device very straightforward and quick, and Martha certainly found that the unit helped with the post-operative swelling and discomfort. We would definitely recommend it to other people going through the same operation.
