Abstract

Several methods have been evaluated during orthodontic treatment to accelerate tooth movement, invasive or surgical and non-invasive with the inclusion of various protocols such as: medications, external electrical stimulation, microvibration, low power laser (LBP), corticotomies, etc, however, it could not be affirmed that any of these is highly efficient and irrefutable. The objective was to analyze the corresponding literature on the ability of the use of high-power laser versus low power laser in orthodontic tooth movement acceleration. The review was chosen by means of research in different databases, such as: Pubmed, Lilacs, Scopus, Ovid, Proquest, Pesquisa, Epistemonikos, Web of Science, among others. The exploration was restricted to articles in English Spanish and Portuguese published from August 2017 to August 2023. Immediately upon applying the inclusion criteria a total of 38 articles were acquired and reviewed. The literature review of high-power laser vs low-power laser in orthodontic tooth movement acceleration was performed. Literature review. Thus, the available literature revealed that the use of low power LLLT laser provides effective acceleration of tooth movement compared to high power LLLT.
