Paper Abstract

Biostimulation, as a non thermic laser irradiation provoked biological effect, results in the enhancement of reparative and regenerative processes. It is a strict dose dependent functional change in the range of 1 - 4 Joule/cm2 incident energy density. Repeated low power irradiations in that particular dose range lead to a cumulative effect, which depends on the frequency of sessions. In the case of daily repetition the cumulation is much quicker than with one or two days interruption. Too high a dose per session or too quick a repetition with maximal doses for more than 20 consecutive irradiations (i.e., daily leads to the opposite effect, which is inhibition.
