If you have ever had a root canal treatment done you know that it removes the damaged tooth pulp and nerves deep inside the teeth. This pulp lies beneath the dentin which is the layer right under the tooth enamel. When the pulp is infected or inflamed from extensive tooth decay or dental injury, the tooth could die and require extraction. A root canal is what our dentist does to save your tooth, restoring it to full function.
Fotona® Laser Therapy
While root canals have gotten a bad rap over the years, today’s root canal therapy is more advanced and comfortable than ever before. Thanks to advanced technology and instruments, like our state-of-the-art Fotona SSP (Super Short Pulse) irrigation (or Photon Induced Photo-acoustic Streaming) laser and the SWEEPS® (Shock Wave Enhanced Emission Photo-acoustic Streaming). These are advanced tools for cleaning the root canal system, even more thoroughly than a regular root canal! Once the infected tissue is cleared out, cleaned and filled with a medicated material, the tooth is capped with a crown so the restored tooth looks, feels and functions just like it always did. Here’s a short list of benefits:
- The Fotona laser sends cleaning solutions throughout the tooth’s tiny crevices to effectively clear out harmful bacteria, dead tissue, and dental debris.
-This laser therapy cuts down on potential complications.
-Its efficiency and efficacy mean diminish the need for extra and often costly procedures like oral surgery, retreatment or extractions and implant restorations.
-Greater safety for you.
-Effectively cleans the whole root canal system while avoiding the risk of spreading the cleaning solutions beyond the end of the tooth root.
-Lessens the risk of having to remove part of the tooth structure.
