There are no doubts about the benefits of non-invasive laser therapy in treating surgical wounds, thanks to its anti-inflammatory, stimulating and analgesic effects. Systemic enzymotherapy is particularly employed due to its thrombolytic, fibrinolytic and antiedema effects. Concurrent use of the two above mentioned treatment modalities exerts a synergistic action. Thus, it is possible to reduce the persistence of the pain as well as the duration of the post-operation period after surgical interventions in the mouth cavity at a statistically highly significant level. Thus, this approach can be recommended for achieving a favourable outcome in most post-operation conditions.
