A total of 102 patients with mandibular fractures were treated by multiple-modality treatment including infrared (IR) laser exposure and magnetic and laser therapy (MT). For monitoring the treatment efficacy and predicting its results, nonspecific defense factors and intensity of free-radical oxidation (FRO) in the saliva were assessed. IR laser and MT by the Ulei-2K device stimulated local defense factors, decreased the intensity of salivary FRO, and thus promoted the healing of mandibular fractures.
