Low-intensity laser is proposed in clinical protocols based on biostimulative effects, yet dosimetry is inaccurate and their effects on DNA at therapeutic doses are controversial. The aim of this work was to evaluate the effects of low-intensity laser 805nm wavelength on Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) plasmids. Our findings in this study indicate that the 805nm laser has effect on gram positive and gram negative bacterial genetic profile. Studies about laser effects and safety strategies are necessary for professionals and patients exposed to low-intensity lasers at therapeutic doses.
