There is a lot of research showing the beneficial effects of laser therapy in the veterinary and dental fields and this study confirms the value of laser therapy in both professions. These researchers reported on the successful treatment of a chronic dental abscess and infection in a Wallaby, an Australian animal that looks like a small kangaroo.
This report describes a case of jaw bone infection involving a tooth that was successfully treated using endodontic techniques with low-level laser therapy at 810nm, the same wavelength as the Apollo.
The low level laser was deemed important for successful decontamination of the pulp cavity, because of its anti-inflammatory, and biostimulatory effects. This study shows how versatile laser is for humans and Wallabies! By the way, for those of you interested in trivia, the Australian national rugby team is nicknamed the “Qantas Wallabies”
