Study: Accelerated Implant Stability after LED Photobiomodulation

Brawn P, Kwong Hing A, Boeriu S and Clokie CM. J Dent Res 87 ( Spec iss B):2021, 2008

35 patients had 63 dental implants placed in either maxilla or mandible. 23 patients had LED therapy via a device placed over the surgical site and utilized on a daily basis of 20mW/cm2 for 20 min at a wavelength of 620+2nm for 21 days.

All implants were tested for primary stability with an Osstell Mentor RFA device ( Osstell AB, Sweden) at the time of implant placement and at 14, 30, 60 and 90 days. Patients treated with the LED device demonstrated significantly (p<0.05) improved dental implant stability on days 14, 30 and 60.
