Laser Assisted Root Canal Treatment: A Review

Keywords: Lasers, Root Canal Therapy, Photoacoustic, Disinfection, Benefits

Abstract

Complexity of root canal system leads to failure of endodontic therapy so to address this issue lasers have been investigated as an adjunctive. Lasers has been used in direct irradiation of root canal or adjunct to irrigants placed into the canals. Laser assisted root canal therapy has more benefits than traditional root canal therapy. It ensures complete sterilization of root canal.
