The Effects of Transcutaneous and Intraoral Low-Level Laser Therapy After Extraction of Lower Third Molars: A Randomized Single Blind, Placebo Controlled Dual-Center Study.

Photomed Laser Surg. 2017 Mar 14;:

Authors: Kahraman SA, Cetiner S, Strauss RA

Conclusions: The results of this study suggest that single-session intraoral LLLT is more effective than extraoral application for reducing postoperative pain. It was postulated that the differences between skin and mucosa could have effect on the results. Although intraoral use would allow closer application to the surgical site, the size of some laser devices precludes their use intraorally.

The aim of the study is to determine the effects of low level laser therapy on tooth movement during canine distalization by evaluating IL-1β, TGF-β1 levels in gingival crevicular fluid. Maxillary first premolars of the 15 Angle Class II division I patients (12–19 years old) were extracted. Right maxillary canines were distalized by standard protocol as control group whereas the left maxillary canines distalized by laser application.

University of Arizona study indicates the role of the visual system in alleviating discomfort.

Light therapy of various kinds has been used in the past to accelerate recovery from injury through infra-red irradiation, and to influence a patient's state of mind as a way to mitigate depression.

But solid scientific investigation of the mechanisms and neurological effects of light therapy is still at an early stage, and few studies have investigated the possible role of light in pain perception.

The purpose of the present work was to study the effect of low-level laser therapy (LLLT): helium-neon (He-Ne) and gallium arsenide (Ga-As) laser on the histomorphology of muscle and mitochondria in experimental myopathy in rats. Thirty Suquía strain female rats were distributed in groups: (A) control (intact), (B) injured, (C) injured and treated with He-Ne laser, (D) injured and treated with Ga-As laser, (E) irradiated with He-Ne laser on the non-injured muscle, and (F) irradiated with Ga-As laser on the non-injured muscle. Myopathy was induced by injecting 0.05 mg/rat/day of adrenaline in the left gastrocnemius muscle at ...
