Material and Methods: Twenty patients with BMS were enrolled in this study; they were divided in two groups randomly. In the laser group, in each patient, 10 areas on the oral mucosa were selected and underwent LLL irradiation at a wavelength of 630 nm, and a power of 30 mW for 10 seconds twice a week for 4 weeks. In the placebo group, silent/off laser therapy was carried out during the same period in the same areas. Burning sensation and quality of life were evaluated. Results: Burning sensation severity and quality of life in the two groups after intervention were different significant statistically, ( P = 0.004, P = 0.01 respectively) .Patients in laser group had better results.
