OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of low-level laser therapy on healing of extracted tooth socket of healthy rabbits. DESIGN The sample of this study was 20 male rabbits of 2-2.5 kg weight with age range of 8-12 months. Right and left lower first premolar teeth were extracted. The extraction sockets of lower right first premolar were irradiated with 0.9 W gallium-aluminum-arsenide (GaAlAs) diode laser for 5 min, immediately after extraction and then every 72 h for the next 12 days.
