OBJECTIVES To test the hypothesis that mechanical forces combined with low-level laser therapy stimulate the rate of orthodontic tooth movement. STUDY DESIGN This study was a double blind, randomized placebo/control matched pairs clinical trial to test the efficacy of GaAlAs low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on 12 young adult patients who required retraction of maxillary canines into first premolar extraction spaces using tension coil springs with fixed edgewise appliance. LLLT was applied on… CONTINUE READING
