Dental Research Study: Effects of red light-emitting diode (LED) therapy on dental pulp cells (DPCs)

This research explored the effects of red light-emitting diode (LED) therapy on dental pulp cells (DPCs). A 653-nm LED was used to irradiate the cells at intervals of 20 seconds, with exposures extending up to 120 seconds. Enhanced cell growth was noted at both 3 and 7 days post-irradiation following exposures of 40 seconds (149 mJ/cm²) and 60 seconds (224 mJ/cm²).

A unique finding was that doubling the exposure on days 1 and 4 of a week-long culture significantly boosted cell growth when compared to a single exposure. The study further revealed increased proliferation rates, which correlated with elevated levels of ATP, nitric oxide (NO), and mitochondrial metabolic activity, even when NO-synthase activity was inhibited.

The therapy also mitigated mitochondrial dysfunction and enhanced in vitro mineralization, suggesting the process was independent of autocrine signaling. Overall, the study demonstrated that 653-nm LED irradiation significantly promotes tissue repair-related responses in DPCs, primarily through enhanced mitochondrial activity.

I’ve been using Neurocare Pro for years and there quality is always consistent and they have helped my practice with support. I highly recommend you use Neurocare Pro products and access their team of professionals to assist with implementation and protocol needs.”

“UNBELIEVABLE Results!!! I purchased the 2-port controller with the lumbar pad from my doctor in hopes for improving the appearance of a 30yr old keloid scar on my stomach (it was raised & discolored) I am over the moon thrilled with the results. It has not only smoothed out to my skin surface but has completely returned to my original skin tone. I have actually had surgery to revise this incision with zero results, so as you can imagine Neurocare Pro therapy has provided me with a small miracle. Cannot thank you enough.“

“I was in a car accident where I suffered head trauma and applied Neurocare Pro products and protocols and it has been an amazing journey to better health. I saw the results happen to ME and became such a believer that I am now an advocate and affiliate of Neurocare Pro products myself!“
