Core Tip

Core Tip: Several Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses have been published to evaluate the effectiveness of photobiomodulation (PBM) in accelerating dental movement and pain control during orthodontic treatment. These studies suggest that PBM is an effective method to achieve these objectives. However, all reports show a lack of standardization in the ideal parameters required.
