Introductio: Dentine hyperesthesia is defined as a pain that arises from the exposed dentine by a peculiar way of reaction to chemical, thermal, tactile or osmotic stimulus. This type of pain is always caused and it is never spontaneous. There exists different therapeutic methods for its treatment. As part of the luminous therapies we can find Fototer 101-M which is based on infrared monochromatic radiation that acts as analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent. Objective: We are presenting a case report with the objective of finding new alternative effective therapies that might be able to eliminate or diminish this painful sensation. Case presentation She is a 27 years old patient who comes for consultation complaining of pain in zone 13 and 14 and she was diagnosed of Dentine hyperesthesia. She was applied with the mentioned therapy in repeated sessions for a 10 days cycle impacting the affected area with perpendicular light emitting diode (LED). After resting for 1 month 8 more sessions were repeated in a 2nd cycle remitting pain after the fifth session of the first cycle. Conclusion: There were not adverse reactions during the treatment.
