  Purpose

Study hypothesis: Low level laser (LED) will reduce initial bone resorption and improve primary stability of dental implant. It will also reduces post operative pain compared to patient without treatment

Implant osseointegration depends on many factors including biocompatibility of implant materials, design, surface, surgical access, patient conditions, biomechanical status, and lack of primary stability.

Several in vivo and in vitro studies showed the healing effect of low level laser therapy (LLLT) on bone by decreasing the initial bone resorption postoperatively and increasing the primary stability of the implant. It has also shown to have an analgesic effect intraorally when used post intraoral surgical procedures. The exact mechanism is unclear despite the fact that many hypothesis has been proposed.

In our study, our goal is to present, in a randomized standardized clinical trial, the effect of LLLT on post operative implant stability assessed by resonance frequency analysis (RFA). We will assess the subjective measures of postoperative pain using visual analog scale (VAS).


Condition Intervention
Implant
Analgesia
Device: OsseoPulse device (Light emitting diode technology)

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Role of Light Emitting Diode on Implant Stability, Bone Resorption and Analgesia Post Dental Implant Placement

Further study details as provided by Mount Sinai Hospital, Canada:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Implant stability [ Time Frame: Immediately post-op, 1, 2, 4, and 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Implant stability and bone quality will be assessed via RFA technology using Ostelle device (Resonance Frequency Analysis technology)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Post-op analgesics [ Time Frame: Every 3 hours the day of the surgery post-op, then every morning, and at bed time for the following 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Analgesia will be assessed using a combination of VAS and categorical scale. Patient will fill a pre-printed form with the modified VAS every 3 hours at the day of surgery, and every morning and at night for 7 days. Pt. will also reports the time and the dose of analgesics they are taking post operatively to control pain in that form. Patients will submit all the data to the surgeons at the 1-week follow-up appointment


Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: April 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: LED application
Patients in this group will be given the LED device and will be instructed on how and when to use it. They will receive LED treatment to the surgical site preoperatively by the surgeon for 20 minutes. Then, patients in this group will apply LED at home to the surgical site postoperatively at the day of surgery and for the following 9 postoperative days.
Device: OsseoPulse device (Light emitting diode technology)
Patients in this group will be given the LED device and will be instructed on how and when to use it. They will receive LED treatment to the surgical site preoperatively by the surgeon for 20 minutes. Then, patients in this group will apply LED at home to the surgical site postoperatively at the day of surgery and for the following 9 postoperative days.
Other Name: Device by Biolux Lic# 77929 (Approved by Health Canada)
No Intervention: No LED application
These patients will receive conventional dental implant treatment without the application of the LED therapy.
