While lasers are often associated with sci-fi weaponry and futuristic space exploration, they have also found an incredible application within the human body. At the Fifth Avenue Endodontics, our talented endodontists frequently utilize cutting-edge laser-based tools to enhance root canal treatments.
In our Manhattan office, we employ state-of-the-art laser technology from trusted brands. These innovative tools provide invaluable assistance during the crucial stages of cleaning and disinfecting tooth roots in root canal treatments.
Here’s how laser technology revolutionizes the root canal process:
Enhanced Cleaning in the Crown Area: Starting the root canal treatment involves creating an opening in the crown. By utilizing laser technology in this area, our skilled endodontists can effectively remove calcifications and biological debris, ensuring a thorough cleaning.
Advanced Root Canal Cleaning: After preparing the canals using traditional tools, our experts employ laser technology while irrigating the canal with water. As the laser generates vapor bubbles, these bubbles collapse to form microbubbles and a powerful pressure wave. These phenomena effectively dislodge and eliminate biofilm from the canals, further enhancing the cleaning process.
Streamlined Disinfection: Our endodontists shape the canals with files and then irrigate them with disinfecting liquids. At this stage, lasers prove invaluable in augmenting the disinfection process. The pressure wave created by the vapor bubbles efficiently pushes the disinfectant deep into the canal recesses, greatly improving the overall effectiveness compared to traditional disinfection methods.
Precise Removal of Disinfectants: Laser technology can also be utilized to remove residual disinfecting liquid before filling the canals. Once the canals have been thoroughly cleaned, shaped, and disinfected, the laser tool is activated for approximately 30 seconds to vaporize any remaining liquid, leaving the canals properly prepared for the filling procedure.
