LLLT is used in oral surgery to reduce the discomfort of the patients after surgical procedures, such as pain, swelling and trismus.

We showed in our case report the use of LLLT as for the reduction of post-operative discomfort as to prevent osteonecrosis of the jaws, since our patient was affected with osteogenesis imperfecta.

The patient did not have any complications after surgery and after a one year follow-up she did not show any radiological or clinical sign of osteonecrosis of the jaws.
