The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of 810-nm (DMC Equipamentos, Sao Carlos, Brazil) continuous wave low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on the pain caused by orthodontic elastomeric separators. Thirty-seven orthodontic patients (12 male and 25 female, aged 11–32 years, mean age = 24.97 years) participated in the study, including 20 subjects aged 18 years or more, and 17 under 18 years of age. Four elastomeric separators (Dentarum, Springen, Germany) were placed for the first… Expand

Low-level laser therapy effects on pain perception related to the use of orthodontic elastomeric separators
TLDR
Overall pain perception due to orthodontic separator placement varied widely and was usually mild, suggesting that the use of a single-dose of LLLT did not cause significant reduction in orthmodontic pain perception. Expand
Effectiveness of Low-Level Laser Therapy during Tooth Movement: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the use of LLLT therapy was effective in accelerating tooth movement and reducing pain levels related to OTM. Expand

TLDR
A single dose of low-level laser therapy can be an efficient modality to reduce the postoperative pain associated with the placement of elastomeric separators. Expand
Effect of photobiomodulation on pain perception secondary to separator placement
TLDR
Although a single dose of photobiomodulation subsequent to separator placement does not provide immediate relief, it is significantly effective in reducing pain at 24 and 48 h. Expand
Effect of low-level laser therapy on tooth-related pain and somatosensory function evoked by orthodontic treatment
TLDR
The application of LLLT appears to reduce the pain and sensitivity of the tooth and gingiva associated with orthodontic treatment and may have contralateral effects within the trigeminal system but no generalized QST effects. Expand
Effects of diode laser (980 nm) on orthodontic tooth movement and interleukin 6 levels in gingival crevicular fluid in female subjects
TLDR
Results failed to show any significant difference between the mean rate of canine retraction of both groups, and conclusive evidence could not be provided to support the efficacy of the diode laser (980 nm) in accelerating OTM in female subject. Expand
The effect of diode superpulsed low-level laser therapy on experimental orthodontic pain caused by elastomeric separators: a randomized controlled clinical trial
TLDR
A single-diode SLLLT application appeared to be effective in reducing the intensity and duration of experimentally induced orthodontic pain and could be used in daily orthodentic practice. Expand
Evaluation of LED phototherapy to reduce orthodontic pain: a controlled clinical trial
TLDR
Use of the 850-nm LED device after anterior retraction activation resulted in lower pain scores at all time points, indicating that LED therapy should be considered a good alternative to reduce orthodontic pain during the first 2 days postprocedure. Expand
Evaluating the effect of low-level laser therapy on pain induced by orthodontic separation: a randomized split-mouth clinical trial
TLDR
A single dose of low-level laser therapy is an effective modality in significantly reducing the intensity of both spontaneous and pain on chewing caused after the placement of elastomeric separators. Expand
Efficacy of Photobiomodulation Therapy for Orthodontic Pain Control Following the Placement of Elastomeric Separators: A Randomized Clinical Trial.
TLDR
PBMT by an 808 nm diode laser can effectively decrease pain following the placement of elastomeric separator in orthodontic patients who required posterior elastomersic separators. Expand

Analgesic effect of a low-level laser therapy (830 nm) in early orthodontic treatment
TLDR
Evaluating the pain sensation that orthodontic patients experience when elastic separators are placed between molars and premolars and the degree of analgesic efficacy of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) compared to a placebo treatment found LLLT at these parameters can reduce pain in patients following placement of orthodentic rubber separators. Expand
Efficiency of low-level laser therapy in reducing pain induced by orthodontic forces.
TLDR
The significant reductions in both pain intensity and PGE(2) levels revealed that LLLT was efficient in reducing orthodontic post-adjustment pain. Expand

TLDR
LLLT immediately after multibanding reduced the prevalence of pain perception at 6 and 30 hours and might have positive effects in orthodontic patients not only immediately afterMultibanding, but also for preventing pain during treatment. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of the VAS median scores showed that teeth exposed to laser treatment had lower levels of pain as compared with those with the placebo treatment, however, nonparametric statistical analysis of the data showed that the differences between treatments and placebo within each subject were not statistically significant. Expand
Clinical effect of CO(2) laser in reducing pain in orthodontics.
TLDR
The results suggest that local CO(2) laser irradiation will reduce pain associated with orthodontic force application without interfering with the tooth movement. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that LLLT efficiently controls pain caused by the first archwire, and lower mean scores for oral pain and intensity of pain on the most painful day. Expand
The effect of two phototherapy protocols on pain control in orthodontic procedure—a preliminary clinical study
TLDR
The LED therapy showed a significant reduction in pain sensitivity, after the orthodontic tooth movement when compared to the control group, and the laser group did not have statistically significant results in the reduction of pain level. Expand
The effect of low-level laser therapy during orthodontic movement: a preliminary study
TLDR
It is suggested that low-level laser therapy can highly accelerate tooth movement during orthodontic treatment and can also effectively reduce pain level. Expand

TLDR
Low-intensity laser therapy is a good option to reduce orthodontic treatment duration and pain and scores on the experimental sides were significantly lower compared with the control sides. Expand

TLDR
It could not be concluded that any low-level laser will reduce the speed of teeth movement in orthodontic treatments, and further studies with less or more energies may show different results. Expand
