cold laser

A hand-held, nonsurgical laser using photobiostimulation, which received FDA approval for treating carpal tunnel syndrome. Benefits claimed for cold lasers include increased collagen production, nerve regeneration, bone and tissue repair, vasodilation, enzyme response, cell metabolism, cell membrane potential, pain threshold, and reduced inflammatory duration and oedema.

No study has been conducted so far, at least to the best of our knowledge, to see the physical change of the partial tear of supraspinatus tendon in terms of tendon thickness and tear width using musculoskeletal ultrasound after application of LLLT.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of LLLT (940 nm) with 5 J/[cm.
Then, animals were randomly divided into one of two conditions: anesthetic procedure isolated or anesthetic procedure combined with LLLT applications:
The principles of LLLT are: I) the power must be ranged from 10 up to 500 mw;21 II) pulsed mode delivery will allow some cooling to occur in between pulses;20,23 III) suitable therapeutic energies range from 1-14 J/cm2; and IV) there is generally no heat or tissue heating involved in this therapy24 Several protocols and different dosimetry have been described while using LLLT in aphthous ulcer treatment.
Considering that LLLT is often used in the treatment of CRPS, this study was designed in order to determine whether the application of this therapy is more efficient than IFC.
In addition, the applicant for an LLLT license must have completed 3000 hours of practice under an admitted lawyer, and during that time can be paid for the work.
Accordingly, stimulation of the body's endogenous defence systems and antimicrobial effects suggest LLLT as a potentially suitable treatment for OM.
Conclusion: These results suggest that LLLT may play an important role in wound healing by stimulating the fibroblasts.
13] investigated the effects of LLLT of different wavelengths (670 nm, 780 nm and 830 nm) on osteoblast and osteosarcoma (cancerous) cells.
LLLT exposes cells to low levels of either red or near-infrared light.
The aim of this review article was to give the insight into the literature published so far regarding the effects of LLLT used for treatment of patients with PV and to remind on the crucial role of dentists in early recognition of PV.
Estudios in vivo e in vitro han demostrado que el laser incrementa los niveles del ATP celular (38) y activa enzimas especificas que aceleran la salud tisular, reparacion, neo vascularizacion e incrementa la acti vidad fagocitaria de los leucocitos (39-42) Las propiedades anti-inflamatorias de la LLLT se basan en sus efectos en la reduccion de prostaglandina E2, factor de necrosis tumoral-a, interleukina-ip, ciclooxigenasa-2mRNA y niveles de activador de plasminogeno (43).
