Low Level Laser Therapy
Low Level laser therapy is the application of light on damaged tissues to improve the speed and quality of healing. It works by increasing cellular energy and reducing free radicals. Laser and LED’s produce intense beams of light at specific wavelengths. When the right wavelength at the right intensity is used at the correct anatomical location for the right amount of time you can stimulate tissue, reduce inflammation and relieve pain. The three main areas with good evidence are: Soft tissue injuries, joint conditions, back and neck pain.
There is growing evidence that LLLT is beneficial for orthodontic procedures and orofacial pain. LLLT can also reduce the use of anesthesia for children or can be used to reduce the local discomfort of injections.
