This study was a double-blinded, randomized controlled clinical trial of 42 patients to test the efficacy of MLS Mphi laser in post- op third molar extraction patients. Pain via Visual Analog Scale, Overall Satisfaction, and trismus range of motion was tested. The test group received treatment of 2.5j/cm2 with active MLS Mphi laser, the control group received a sham laser treatment
The treatment group had less pain, swelling, bleeding, speech impairment and overall satisfaction than the control group (p<.05). The treatment group required less pain killers, and less trismus compared to the control group (p<.05). The use of MLS Mphi laser in post-op management for wisdom teeth extraction showed to give a statistically better clinical result than traditional care approach.
