In a traditional root canal procedure, the dentist injects a strong disinfectant into the contaminated canal. This method of irrigation typically does not get a sufficient amount of disinfectant into the root-tip. The laser uses light energy to create fluid turbulence inside the canals of your tooth. The turbulence scrubs the canal walls clean of bacterial debris. It also penetrates, cleans and disinfects complicated anatomy far better than conventional root canal instrumentation. Cleaner canals mean a higher chance for success and less pain/discomfort after the procedure.
