  • An erbium:YAG laser can be used to achieve an effect termed “laser analgesia”. This is based on the concept that "simultaneous low level laser therapy" (LLLT) may occur along with high level laser treatment, as outlined by by Ohshiro and Calderhead. Laser analgesia is a non-destructive, non-thermal bio-modulation of dental pulp responses. It is not profound anaesthesia (the lack of all sensation), as gained with an injection of local anaesthetic solution.
