Laser Endodontics

Laser Endodontics

PIPS/ SWEEPS: An effective, minimally invasive treatment technology that harnesses photoacoustic energy to improve the irrigation and disinfection efficacy of cleaning irritants in even the most complex and narrow root canal systems. The shockwaves created can successfully clean debris and bacterial biofilm from canals, lateral canals, and dentinal tubules increasing treatment success.

SWEEPS (Shockwave enhanced emission photoacoustic streaming) is a transformative advancement to PIPS that is only available with the Lightwalker Er: YAG laser. SWEEPS increases the penetration of the cleaning shockwaves deeper into the root canal system improving the disinfection of the entire canal system.

Other Lightwalker Features:
A dual laser complementary wavelength combination that synergistically enhances treatment results. The healing, disinfecting, and atraumatic properties of the laser treatment allow for enhanced capacity such as regenerative and pulp sparing endodontic procedures.

Low Level Laser Therapy LLLT (Photobiomodulation): Enhances your healing potential and reduces post-treatment symptoms by optimizing your body’s response to treatment. Photobiomodulation has been shown in numerous peer reviewed studies to enhance the healing response by stimulating wound repair mechanisms, reducing inflammation, and reduced post-operative discomfort.

SWEEPS® Endodontic Laser Treatment

Safe, thorough & effective laser root canal treatment is now available at Aether Endodontics. SWEEPS® is an advanced method for cleaning the root canal system. Our state-of-the-art Fotona LightWalker® laser generates precise waves of energy to thoroughly clean the complex root canal system that traditional methods can sometimes miss.

SWEEPS® promises to represent an entirely new way of thinking about root canal therapy. With SWEEPS®, patients receive fast, safe, and effective root canal treatments.

Root canal  laser treatment successfully addresses a major disadvantage of classical root canal therapy, the inability to completely clean and disinfect complex root canal systems.
Advantages of and SWEEPS® Technologies:

  • Fast, Effective, and Minimally Invasive Treatments with Multiple Laser Technologies.
  • Increased Success Rates.
  • SSP and SWEEPS® deliver cleaning solutions throughout the tooth’s small nooks and crannies removing bacteria, dead tissue, and debris.
  • Reduced complications.
  • Less need for additional costly procedures such as surgery, retreatment or extractions, and implant therapy.
  • Increased patient safety.
  • Cleans the entire root canal anatomy without the risk of extruding cleaning solutions beyond the end of the root.
  • Reduced removal of tooth structure = Reduced tooth fracture.
