OBJECTIVE This study investigates the effects of Nd:YAG laser irradiation on apical and coronal seals, when used prior to two root canal filling techniques. BACKGROUND DATA Limited information exists regarding the effects of morphologic changes to dentin walls following Nd:YAG laser irradiation on the sealing ability of root fillings. METHODS Two(More)
OBJECTIVE This study investigates the effects of Nd:YAG laser irradiation combined with different irrigation protocols on the marginal seal of root fillings. BACKGROUND DATA Limited information exists regarding the effects of morphologic changes to root canal (RC) walls after Nd:YAG laser irradiation after smear-layer removal with EDTA on the sealing(More)
