OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to histologically evaluate the effect of low-level laser (LLL) on the healing of critical size defects (CSD) in rat calvaria, filled with autogenous or inorganic bovine bone grafts. METHODS Sixty rats were divided into 6 groups (n = 10): C (control-filled with blood clot), LLL (low-level laser-GaAlAs, λ 780 nm, 100… CONTINUE READING
