Photobiomodulation Comes to Dentistry!
Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a cutting edge technology used to treat a multitude of conditions. PBM works to combat oxidative stress in your cells to decrease inflammation, relieve pain and accelerate healing.
Now used for Dental / Oral Conditions including Oral Mucositis (see below).
PBM for Oral Conditions
PBM is now successfully being used to treat a range of oral pathologies and is beneficial for orthodontic procedures and orofacial pain syndromes. Whether you’re recovering from dental work or have other oral conditions, PBM also known as LLLT (Low Level Light Therapy), has been proven to improve the speed and quality of tissue repair, and reduce inflammation and pain. Luminous now has a new Dental Laser Wand to use in conjunction with our other Laser and LED Light equipment to treat and heal many oral conditions.

PBM Treatment for Oral Mucositis
Oral Mucositis (sores on the inside of the mouth) is a debilitating side effect of chemo and radiation cancer treatments. It can be so painful that patients are not able to drink or eat and causes increased risk of infection due to open sores in the mucosa. There has been no successful treatment for this condition until Photobiomodulation.
Now, using the THOR oral laser light probe internally and the LED and Laser light probes on the outside of the mouth and jaw, Oral Mucositis sufferers get much needed pain relief and healing. Hospitals in the US are using THOR Light Therapy for cancer patients and now we are so happy to be offering this treatment here in Vancouver!
