“We are honored to work with the high caliber of investigators, researchers and clinicians expanding awareness of photobiomodulation in the world of orthodontics, states Peter Brawn DDS, founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Biolux Research Ltd. “The research is showing a very significant effect in terms of accelerating tooth movement without any statistical difference in root desorption and safety issues that are normally associated with accelerated orthodontic treatment”.
