Laser Assisted Root Canal Treatment
Incorporating lasers into root canal therapy revolutionizes the traditional approach by offering a minimally invasive and highly precise treatment option. The process begins with accessing the root canal system, after which a laser fiber is inserted to target and eradicate bacteria, infected tissue, and debris. The laser energy effectively sterilizes the canal, ensuring thorough disinfection while also sealing off tiny tubules to prevent recontamination. Lasers can help reduce post op discomfort and promote faster healing. Additionally, their precision allows for minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue, preserving the tooth’s structure and integrity. Overall, laser-assisted root canal therapy offers patients a more comfortable, efficient, and effective treatment option with reduced post-operative pain and enhanced long term outcomes.
Not all teeth require laser treatment, please discuss this option with your treating endodontist.
