    Author(s): Shivangi Gaur* and M Madhulaxmi

    Introduction: Therapeutic extractions are commonly performed for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment to achieve one or all treatment objectives as elaborated by Jackson’s triad. Although haemostasis can be achieved easily using conventional methods, a traumatic extraction techniques combined with various novel methods to control bleeding allow for minimal trauma to the investing tissues which is the prime concern in such cases. Hence, the aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of Light Emitting Diode (LED) curing lamps to cause photocoagulation of blood post extraction of teeth. Materials and Methods: The study included 20 patients who needed therapeutic extractions. They were divided into two equal groups namely control (Group A) and experimental (Group B). Conventional digital gauze compression was used in the control cases, while irradiation using Blue-Violet LED.. Read More»
