Pediatric dentists are always looking for new techniques, materials, and technologies which may help children to experience better and faster treatments. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been increasingly used in medicine and dentistry over the last few years as a nonsurgical tool for pain control and wound healing improvement. LLLT can benefit the dental treatment and improve the relationship between the dentist, the children, and their parents. This paper describes the success of two cases in which LLLT was used after surgical procedures in pediatric dentistry. Neither patient reported painful symptoms or the use of any medicine during the postoperative period, suggesting a satisfactory and uneventful surgical recovery. In addition, the follow-up examinations revealed an ordinary wound healing of the surgical sites.
