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.

Educational Objectives

  • Relate the potential range of PBM applications.
  • Describe how PBM works.
  • Understand dose as it relates to PBM treatment.
  • Comprehend how to treat various dental conditions with PBM.

Diabetic foot ulcer case study / Testimonial from Ramsay Chiropractic

Hi Mark,

I just wanted to share with you the treatment I have been giving a lady who had three toes amputated due to diabetes. She had an ulcer that wasn’t healing after 6 months and they wanted to amputate the rest of her toes. She came to me quite desperate.

I first saw her on the 15/8/20 and worked with her 3 times per week and the last couple of weeks 2 times per week. Now once a week and today she came and the hospital have told her the hole is completely gone and she no longer has to have her remaining toes amputated. Amazing!

How amazing is that?

Kind Regards,
Ann Ramsay

Course Testimonial: Dr Mike Anderson

Dr Mike Anderson“I liked everything about the training. The teaching notes are superb for following at the time but even more so for reference to later, both for the participant and to show to make a point when discussing LASER’s with skeptical colleagues. Access to your library collection is also great for similar reasons! 

I like the way THOR is developing specific transducers / probes etc. for specific problems e.g. the ‘lollipop’ for oral problems etc.; Keep spreading the word, thanks!”

Course Testimonial: Karla Estrada-Rojas MA, CCC-SLP

Karla Estrada-Rojas MA, CCC-SLP“I am a certified speech-language pathologist with over 10 years of experience in the field and I have decided to challenge myself with new learnings and experiences outside of the traditional speech-pathology world. Therefore, after completing orofacial motricity training and the use of photobiomodulation. I decided to complete the THOR training and it was an excellent experience. I learned about the safety of the devices and the significant benefits that it can provide to patients of all needs. I highly recommend this course and hope you have the same positive experience that I did. Thank you very much, THOR!”
