Little is known about the physiological mechanisms related to low-intensity laser therapy (LILT), particularly in acute inflammation and subsequent wound healing. The objective of this study was to verify the effect of LILT on mast cell degranulation. Epulis fissuratum tissues from eight patients were used. One part of the lesion was irradiated with an AsGaAl laser (λ =  670 nm, 8.0 J/cm2, 5 mW, 4 min). The other part was not irradiated. Then, the specimens were immediately removed, fixed and… CONTINUE READING
