The positive effects of
photobiomodulation – a real highlight.
The application of near infrared light has been studied for over 85 years with over 6000 peer-reviewed articles supporting its clinical and scientific efficacy in fields such as cardiology, neurology, and dermatology. Light from the near infrared spectrum (NIR) promotes cell metabolism, bone remodeling, and pain and inflammation reduction. That is precisely how OrthoPulse® accelerates orthodontic tooth movement.
“Light in the red to near infrared range (600-1000 nm) generated by using low-energy laser or
light-emitting diode (LED) arrays have been reported to have beneficial biological effects in many injury models. Such photobiomodulation has been observed to increase mitochondrial metabolism, facilitate wound healing and promote angiogenesis in skin, bone, nerve and skeletal muscle.”
