Based on my personal research on lasers over the
past 15 years, I believe that lasers applied in LLLT
activate a cell to do whatever it genetically is destined
or differentiated to do-just faster. Rates reported in
the literature are often listed at two to six times above
the usual production.12,32
Studies have shown that decreasing the duration of
orthodontic treatment and pain involved may increase
the acceptance of orthodontics in both adults and
children.25 This has certainly been the case with patients
in my private practice; we were treating more patients in
their 60s and 70s than ever in my 40-year orthodontic
career. The word-of-mouth on our treatments lasting
only months instead of years brought more senior citizens
seeking orthodontics. These patients had elected not to
do any treatment in the past, mainly due to the longevity
of the treatment plans and pain involved.

Conclusion
These laser applications and orthodontic reactivation
appointment intervals and their adjustments can change
the comfort level and completion times of orthodontics
dramatically.
The final conclusion was that by reducing the time
for orthodontics so dramatically, I was able to reduce
my fees by one-third and was still able to double my
income per hour in orthodontic treatment. Often,
adult patients would say they would've paid double
the standard orthodontic fees to achieve our dramatic
and less painful results. A definite win-win situation
for both patient and practitioner. ■
