FEAR ROOT CANALS? TRY LASER ROOT CANAL THERAPY
As any dentist understands, performing dental procedures are necessary to the health, well-being, and comfort of patients, but sometimes these procedures can be unpleasant and even painful. One of the most feared procedures is the root canal. New laser technology promises to change the way patients experience traditional root canal therapy.
Advantages of laser root canal treatment
Laser root canal treatment uses a parallel beam of intense light to clean out root canals. Even after cleaning and shaping the canals thoroughly some bacteria can be present in the pours of the canal wall but when laser beam is fired in to the canal, this completely kills the remaining bacteria and makes the canal sterile, which is very important for the success of any root canal treatment. Laser therapy “melts” away debris consisting of bacteria and infection, known as the “smear layer” of the root. With less time and pain than a conventional root canal, laser dentistry can remove infection so that we can get on with our life.
POST- RCT PROBLEMS?
Post-operative problems of traditional root canals are practically eliminated — the laser reduces the amount of inflammation, swelling and discomfort often felt as the anesthesia wears off.
FMS dental hospitals possess Diode lasers in all of its centers to perform laser assisted RCT.
