Abstract

This study was performed to investigate the effects of infrared and visible light laser irradiation on cell viability of human gingival fibroblast. For the present study, the author used cultured fibroblast originated from sound gingiva which were fifth of sixth passage. Laser machine utilized here were stomalaser which irradiate infrared (GaAs diode) and red (HeNe) laser in turn with pulse wave pattern or continuous wave pattern, and the machine had several frequency mode presented by regeneration, relaxation and analgesic modalities. Cultured fibroblast samples were divided by this modalities of cell counts and laser exposure time which were 7-seconds of 150 seconds, respectively. 1 day after laser irradiation, each cell-well was treated with MTT and measured optical density with ELISA. The obtained results were as follows : 1. There was a tendency of increasing optical density in proportion to irradiation time in groups of $1\times10^4$ cell per well but in groups of $5\times10^3$ cell per well, reverse phenomena were observed. 2. The difference of optical density according to frequency modalities were not showed significantly except several cases in groups of $5\times10^3$ cell per well. 3. In general, cell viability of cultured human gingival fibroblast wer not showed consistent feature by low level laser irradiation.
