ABSTRACT

Background: Non-surgical treatment is the first step in the treatment of temporomandibular disorders. Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) was compared with drug therapy in these patients. Methods: 30 Patients were selected for the study and randomly divided into two groups of drug therapy (Acenac P 500mg capsules + Diazepam 2 mg) and LLLT (Zolar). Data were evaluated by Visual Analog Scale (VAS). Comparison of average changes in VAS after treatment in both groups was carried out by independent two-sample t-test. Finally, chi-square test was used to compare tenderness and clicking frequency after the treatment. P-value < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. Results: Both methods showed a decreasing trend in pain, clicking and tenderness. Decline in VAS immediately after treatment was significantly lower in LLLT therapy (P<0.01). Conclusion: Both laser and drug therapy methods were effective in the treatment of temporomandibular disorders. However, LLLT showed a significant decrease in the recovery process, so it is more sensible to consider it an appropriate therapy.
