Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Photobiomodulation (PBM), also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), was developed by Endre Mester (Hungary) in 1967. It has been reported that this treatment method is not invasive. Effects such as pain relief and the promotion of wound healing can be seen not only in the medical field, but also in the dental field.
However, it’s mechanism as to why such an effect can be brought remains unknown. In recent years, research at a cell biological level has advanced, and the mechanism is becoming apparent.
This Special Issue is interested in studies about photobiomodulation or LLLT in dentistry. The editorial board invites authors to submit manuscripts with current interest of basic or clinical contents.
