Paper Abstract

The objective of this present work to evaluate in the level of pain and tumor the effect of the low-power density laser irradiation of GaAlAs 790 nm in implanted patients during the postoperative period. Forty five clinic situations were selected and divided in three different groups: Group I, control, without laser application, but with analgesic and anti-inflammatory medication; Group II, patients were irradiated on the day of the surgery, after the same concluded, and on the two subsequent days; and Group III, patients were irradiated on the day of the surgery, on the day of the surgery, before and after the end of the same, and in the two subsequent days after. All the applications were accomplished using the same energy parameters and by the same operator. The measures, with relationship to the pain and the tumor, they were accomplished in the immediate postoperative, in the postoperative (24 hours and also 72 hours after) always by the same examiner. The statistical analysis sustained the clinic observations. In our study, the low power density laser of GaAlAs 790 nm suggested the same clinical results when pain and tumor formation were controlled by analgesic and anti- inflammatory medication.
