Dental Pro

B-Cure Laser Dental Pro is a medical device developed by Israel that has made a global breakthrough in the use of soft laser technology in the dental world. B-Cure Laser Dental Pro is the world's first portable laser treatment device. The device helps to accelerate the healing process, treat inflammation and wounds, and reduce pain and swelling after dental treatment. The effective penetration of the soft laser into the soft tissues enables extra-oral treatment, unlike stationary parallel laser devices. Effective integrated treatment - at the clinic and at home - enables faster and more quality recovery.

How does B-Cure Laser Dental Pro work?

A soft (cold) laser is a low-intensity laser light that acts on the surface of the skin, and at the same time penetrates deep into the tissue without heating or skin damage. The soft laser therapy stimulates cellular activity, strengthens cellular communication and increases the effectiveness of the body's natural immune system: stimulates the production of enzymes that fight infections, releases endorphins and increases the production of collagen and elastin that help in better wound healing and rehabilitation of the area after surgical procedures.

The result :

Proven efficacy in the treatment of acute and chronic infections
Reduces pain and swelling after dental procedures and accelerates healing
Clinically proven to reduce joint pain and joints in the mouth and jaw area

Technological laser soft proved clinically effective in reducing pain, swelling and treat infections in cases such as:

  • Complex extractions
  • Dental Implants
  • Periodontal surgery
  • Root canal treatments
  • Teeth straightening
  • Pain in jaw joints
  • Herpes, miscarriages and infections in the oral cavity (eg mucocytosis)
  • Sensitivity to cold / brown teeth
  • Gingivitis - periodontitis

The studies prove that B-Cure is effective in the treatment of temporal-mandibular  (disorder (TMD) and temporo-mandibular joints (TMJ)

Abstract: A soft laser home remedy for pain relief in jaw joint syndrome

Pourini, Palosi A, Queirolo V., and Scoopy P. And Marigo A. Department of Biomedical, Biotechnology and Translation Sciences, University of Parma, Italy

Purpose

Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) is defined as a variety of clinical and functional problems, including the temporalandandular joint (TMJ), the chewing muscles and associated tissues. The main symptom of the syndrome is pain, probably caused by inflammatory changes in the interstitial membrane, bone marrow changes in the lower jaw, and injury and compression in the jaw.
The purpose of this research is to test the effectiveness of the new soft laser, recently introduced in the market, in reducing the pain caused by jaw joint syndrome. Due to its small size and ANSI class 1 classification, the patient can use this device himself and at home.

Material and methods

Twenty-four patients with jaw joint syndrome were randomly selected: the inclusion criterion was the diagnosis of unilateral or bilateral jaw joint syndrome, with severe limiting pain to the joint area, associated with tactile tenderness in the muscle. Patients were randomized into two groups:
Group 1 (12 patients): patients receiving soft laser therapy (study group). Group 2 (12 patients): Patients receiving inactive laser therapy (placebo group). The patient performs the treatment on his own once a day for two weeks with a 808nm semiconductor laser (laser diode). Treatment is performed on the area of ​​the jaw joints for 15 minutes on each side. Each patient was instructed to describe his or her pain on visual visual scale (VAS), which creates a vertical line between the two extremes that represent the level of pain the patient experiences. Statistical analysis performed in GraphPad Instat software, where P <0.05 is considered significant and P <0.01 is very meaningful.

Results

Patients' pain was examined in both study groups before treatment, one week after treatment and two weeks after treatment. The difference between the two groups was very significant with p <0.0001 in comparison with VAS values ​​one week after treatment and two weeks after treatment.

Conclusion

The study, even if it was considered a pilot study, explored a new way to treat the pain of jaw joint syndrome in home-based laser therapy. The results are encouraging, but need to be confirmed with more comperehensive studies.

Efficiency of photodynamic therapy using B-Cure Laser Dental Pro in laboratory treatment in the level of tooth bacteria

Effect of Photodynamic Therapy using B-CURE® laser on an in vitro model of dental plaque

Aims

To test the disinfection properties of B-CURE® laser as a solo treatment, or as adjunctive with bio-synthesizer Indocyanin green, in a model of pathogenic biofilm.

Materials and methods

In an in vitro model, pathogenic biofilm was established using non-pathogenic bacteria - Streptococcus sanguis and Actinomyces naslundii and pathogenic bacteria - Porphyromonas gingivalis and Fusobacterium nucleatum on tooth like surfaces (hydroxyapatite discs).
The infected disks were exposed to B-CURE® laser with or without pretreatment with Indocyanin green. Control groups will include not treated biofilm and sham treatment (blank laser machine).
All groups underwent staining for live and dead bacteria using florescent dyes (Figure 1) and analysis was done using a fluorescent microscopy.

Results

1. Part-Effect of B-cure laser with and without Indocyanin green - kinetics:

We screened different exposure time intervals of exposure to the B-Cure laser, either alone or in conjunction with indocyanin green pre-treatment. This was done in order to single out the most effective time point for further experiments.
1a. - Short-term Kinetics: Time points included 30 seconds, 60 seconds and 120 seconds. Control group was not exposed to B-cure laser at all.
Results of this experiment revealed that the optimum exposure time for visible effect is 120 sec (Figure 3). Also, the ICS group at 120 sec exposure shown significant elevation in bacterial death compared with the other groups.

Conclusions

The present study shows that, in vitro, the B-cure laser together with indocyanin green, may have a potential to induce death in periodontal-like biofilm. Pre-staining of the plaque with indocyanin green followed by irradiation of the stained plaque with the B-cure laser for at least 2 minutes shows clear and significant bactericidal effect and biofilm death, compared with sham and placebo controls.

In the present experimental conditions, irradiation of the biofilm, with or without indocyanin green, for 5 min and above, induced significant death of bacteria, with no differences between the stained and unstained groups. However, this result should be interpreted with caution, since long exposure to aerobic conditions may affect the reliability of the artificial biofilm as well.

The results of this preliminary in vitro study indicate for a possibility of the use of B-cure laser in photodynamic therapy, using indocyanin green as the bio-synthesize. This method may be helpful in clinical situations where dental plaque is the etiological factor (such as periodontal diseases), but the clinical and the in vivo microbial effects need to be validated in controlled human clinical trials.
