Recent research shows interesting findings for the wavelength spectrum between Red and Near-Infrared in the field of Dentistry. The wavelengths of:
- Red 610 nm
- Deep red 665 nm to 695 nm and 745 nm to 775 nm
- Infrared 800 nm to 835 nm have lots of potential in the Dental field.
A few of the examples are:
In the field of orthodontics
During orthodontic dental decrowing, recent research published in 2020 confirmed that PBM could be used to enhance its efficiency. 8
A study in vitro and in vivo has shown that red and near-infrared regions of the spectrum, representing the most effective ranges of irradiation dose, influence the rate of the orthodontic movement. 8
It is most significant due to its penetration into the living tissues to induce cell proliferation and differentiation without overheating the tissues. 8
Diving deep into the cellular world, while its use provokes an increased metabolic activity, accelerates cellular turnover (osteoclast, osteoblast fibroblasts). Also, the production of cytokines involved in the Bone remodeling. 8
In Oral Surgery
As another Dental Treatment, using the range of Infrared 830 nm wavelength, in 8 treatment sessions, and at 48-hour intervals, Photbiomodulation can shorten the retention period. Mineralization may be increased by using Photobiomodulation during mandibular distraction osteogenesis surgical procedures. 9
In the field of Operative Dentistry
As a treatment for dentin hypersensitivity, with a range of 660 nm per tooth, PBM can be used effectively without detrimental pulpal effect, providing decreased dental sensitivity discomfort. 10
As a treatment for muscles orofacial pain
At a 2mm distance and 670nm deep red light. 11
Incorporating the use of Luminousred in a green dental clinic provides other benefits that allow the space to be adequately designed for Well-being purposes. For example, for:
Healing Mercury Poisoning with Infrared
A Biological Dentist will always look inside a patient’s mouth to detect the presence of amalgam fillings.
When having such restorations in the mouth, it is suggested to test the patient immediately for mercury poisoning.
If mercury levels in the body while test results are high, it is necessary to follow the required protocol.
As part of the protocol, implementing a photobiomodulation device in the Dental Clinic will allow the patient to detoxify its body from mercury poisoning. The Luminousred technology, because of its versatility, permits the proper position for the full body.
For aesthetics purposes
Face and Mouth work in conjunction. When a patient attends consultation due to improving his smile, the patient will end by reducing wrinkles and have the skin tightened in a big average. They want to look beautiful! And it is part of a complete dental clinic service to incorporate aesthetics solutions. We know Photobiomodulation works pretty well.

But, more pops up as we go, and we are astonished by how much something as easy as shining a light onto your body can help with overall health and longevity. Light management has such an essential correlation to health that everyone should take seriously – not just dental patients. This blog is simply one niche example.
What is being used today?
Currently, the usage of Photobiomodulation in dentistry is minimal.
There are products in this area, like the ATP38, that use a light-color therapy approach with various colors of for and allow for a limited usage of red and near-infrared wavelengths we are looking at in the context of Photobiomodulation.
All our devices emit red and near-infrared light only. Those two wavelengths are the most studied and understood in today’s research community. As already mentioned, blue, green, or yellow has proposed benefits.
Blue light boosts alertness, it has antimicrobial potential 32, it helps memory and cognitive function, and elevates mood. It regulates circadian rhythm – the body’s natural wake and sleep cycle. 28.
Green light boosts the production of serotonin, for example 29,
And, yellow light can increase wound healing, collagen induction, skin hydration, and the overall health of the skin 30.
The Amber spectrum (580nm to 600nm). is commonly related to inflammatory response control for a post-operatory oral surgical treatment. 27
As with Photobiomodulation and this dentistry approach, we want to generate systemic effects throughout the full body. A light application that is not just limited to the face if desired. 24
Why applying PBM supports health?
Luminousred guys mention, There are various technical specifications and usage opportunities with Luminousred devices.
Firstly, all our devices have a higher number of dual LEDs built-in. Starting with the Model1, with 120, and going up to 960 dual LEDs with the Model2+2 Duo – we give you more opportunities to use the right kind of light. More LEDs allow for a more efficient treatment (in less time and a broader treatment area) and distribute the light in a much more uniform or natural way.
Secondly, all electronic light devices create effects: EMF and light flicker. In our case, we want to watch the EMF and flicker output. EMF stands for electromagnetic field and occurs by electrons flowing through a circuit. Flicker is created when an electrical device’s power grid runs on “alternating current” (AC). AC typically occurs at 50 Hz or 60 Hz. Hertz is the number of cycles a current alternates per second. Both of these effects can be harmful to our system, which we want to prevent.
With Photobiomodulation, we want to get as close to nature as possible, mimicking parts of light from the sun and leave adverse effects out. While we cannot prevent them from happening altogether, we can use higher quality parts in building electronic devices on the one hand and watch what tools we’re using in our daily lives secondly. We did not find closer information on EMF or flicker with the ATP38 but can assure that all our devices emit 0 EMF (at 6 inches of distance) and are anti-flicker due to higher quality drivers.
If you want to read more about flicker or EMF, visit their research page or follow the links below 31,32.
Third our sizing options. All our devices are stackable like LEGOs, giving dental clinics the opportunity to both do targeted treatments at the jaw/head and full-body treatments in a separate recovery room. Talking about holistic health, it all starts in the mouth, and if inpatients can get their treatments done in house directly and come back, it’s a win-win for all parties included.
This devices can also be used in conjunction with the ATP38, without having to make significant changes in the clinics participating.
Last but not least, our devices are highly fair-priced. Our devices start at $449 and go up to $2248 maximum. If you compare this to our competitors in the field – and considering the higher quality components – we are 40-50% under their price tag. Additionally, you get excellent customer service, 1:1 guidance from the founders, access to resources such as a VIP page and research page.
What are the benefits of Luminousred in regards to environmental health?
What is a carbon footprint?
A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact your activities have on the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) produced through the burning of fossil fuels and is expressed as a weight of CO2 emissions produced in tonnes. To reduce our carbon footprint, we can consciously choose how to use transportation, food, water use, energy use and waste management.
Why is it crucial to consider the carbon footprint in dental treatments?
- The use of Photobiomodulation allows for less treatment time. We are reducing the total number of appointments/procedures and the actual chair-time.
- Less energy and water waste will occur (in the case this is used as a replacement for a conventional procedure), patients, doctor, and employees traveling.
- O2 emissions are reduced, and costs are reduced, personally and for companies in general.
- Home applications and services can improve your productivity and organization and increase your digital collaboration with your colleagues without printing on paper, for example.
- Discussing interdisciplinary cases via Zoom will also be more comfortable for the environment. 30 Dr. Rosanna Is passionated about finding solutions for improve the health of the environment. Follow her at Instagram: @dr. roxicavalletto
By realizing that health starts in our mouth, patients and dental practitioners are slowly evolving towards a more holistic approach to green dentistry.
Adding Photobiomodulation in your clinic or enabling your patients to use it for their recovery processes is an excellent first step in this way. By harnessing the mitochondrial activation properties of Photobiomodulation, systemic effects in your patient’s bodies can happen.
There are a few solutions on the market, so get yourself informed and test out if Photobiomodulation might be an excellent addition to your needs.
With accessible and easily usable options like Luminousred, this technology has become a real gamechanger with minimal barriers not to try it out.
