ALD PBM Symposium – October 14, 2020 Session

James Carroll, FRSM, CEO | THOR Photomedicine Ltd, Chesham, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom

Photobiomodulation for Orofacial Pain

Photobiomodulation (PBM) has many applications in dentistry with clinical trial evidence published for a wide range of painful pathologies, including postoperative pain, aphthous ulcers, orthodontic pain, burning mouth syndrome, postherpetic neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, stomatitis, oral mucositis, dentin hypersensitivity, temporomandibular disorder (TMD), and neck pain. PBM can also be used to desensitize teeth and even induce anesthesia.

How does PBM do this, what is the evidence, and how does one treat a patient? What treatment parameters (wavelength, power, beam area, irradiance, pulses, treatment time, energy and fluence) are required for a successful treatment? How much PBM is enough, how much is too much, how many treatments are needed, what intervals are required between treatment? What are the contraindications and treatment reactions, and are there any adverse effects? This presentation will address these issues.
