Low Level Laser Therapy in dentistry is becoming more frequent and has had excellent results, with state of the art equipment having pre-established dosimetry parameters for the various clinical actions. The objective of this review was to find scientific evidence that allows the clinician to have the use of low power laser as treatment alternative, in oral soft tissue and hard pathologies in pediatric patients. A review of the literature was performed through search engines such as PubMed, LILACS and SciELO. After reading the texts, it was possible to point out that low frequency laser is a good therapeutic alternative in the resolution of signs and symptoms in oral pathologies of the pediatric patient. This alternative allows for rapid pain control, reduces inflammation and bleeding, and accelerates cellular repair processes.
