Photobiomodulation therapy can be used in dentistry for a wide range of indications. Photobiomodulation (PBM) or laser therapy can regenerate mesenchymal stem cells to form interpapillary spaces and secondary dentin. It can promote bone regeneration and supports all maxillofacial surgery procedures with its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. PBM promotes healing of gingivitis and can prevent or control mucositis.
