Eradication of microorganisms from an infected root canal before obturation is a primary focus of endodontic treatment, as well as the best predictor for the long-term success of the endodontic therapy. The purpose of this in vitro laboratory study was to evaluate the efficacy of a new tapered and stripped Er:YAG laser tip using PIPS (Photon Induced Photoacoustic Streaming) in root canals infected with Enterococcus faecalis (ATCC4082). Methods: Twenty-four freshly extracted single-rooted human…

Disinfection efficacy of photon-induced photoacoustic streaming on root canals infected with Enterococcus faecalis: an ex vivo study.
TLDR
A study to compare the disinfection efficacy of laser-activated irrigation by using a photon-induced photoacoustic streaming (PIPS) tip with conventional irrigation and specifically LAI's ability to remove bacterial film formed on root canal walls found that group A had significantly better disinfection compared with group B.
The Efficacy of Erbium Laser in Infected Root Canals: ex vivo study
TLDR
Irradiation with Er:YAG laser could be used as a simple and standard disinfection method in endodontics, or even better can be use as as adjuvant therapy to standard and irrigation treatment.
Root canal disinfection comparing conventional irrigation vs photon-induced photoacoustic streaming (PIPS) using a buffered 0.5 % sodium hypochlorite solution
TLDR
Assessment of the antimicrobial effect of a buffered 0.5 % sodium hypochlorite solution activated by photon-induced photoacoustic streaming compared to conventional irrigation found it significantly increased its antimicrobial capacity.
Laser Use in Endodontics: Evolution from Direct Laser Irradiation to Laser-Activated Irrigation
Laser technology applied to endodontics, initially investigated in 1971,1 expanded in the 1990s with the development of fiberoptic delivery systems, and lately has undergone an important evolution.
Clinical Applications of Lasers in Endodontic
TLDR
The removal of debris and the smear layer from the root canals as improving the decontamination of the endodontic system.
Minimally invasive biomimetic endodontics: the future is here.
TLDR
Considering the complexity of root canal morphology, none of the above-mentioned techniques seemed to resolve how to best clean, disinfect, and, hopefully, sterilize the canals; therefore, many adjunctive techniques were added, along with chemical intervention and solution activation.
Effect of Chemical Debridement and Irrigant Activation on Endodontic Treatment Outcomes: An Updated Overview
TLDR
This comprehensive review aimed to summarize the effect of various irrigant activation and agitation techniques/ devices on endodontic treatment outcomes and found considerable variation was noticed between the protocols used in each technique.
Laser-based Disinfection of the Root Canal System: An Update.
TLDR
The purpose of this review was to address a brief review of characteristics of lasers and their effects to disinfect the root canal in endodontics.
Recent Advances in Root Canal Disinfection: A Review
TLDR
Application of antibacterial nanoparticles may be a potential strategy to improve the elimination of bacteria from the canal and mechanism of action and applications of photodynamic therapy and Photon-induced photoacoustic streaming and GentleWave system was reviewed.

Effect of Er, Cr: YSGG laser irradiation on Enterococcus faecalis in infected root canals.
TLDR
2- and 3-W powers of Er, Cr:YSGG laser have antibacterial effects on E. faecalis in root canals of infected teeth; however, the effect is less remarkable than that of NaOCl solution.
Effectiveness of different laser systems to kill Enterococcus faecalis in aqueous suspension and in an infected tooth model.
TLDR
The laser systems as well as PAD were less effective than NaOCl in reducing E. faecalis, both in aqueous suspension and in the infected tooth model.
Bactericidal effect of Nd:YAG and Er:YAG lasers in experimentally infected curved root canals.
TLDR
The results suggest that further development in the endodontic laser tip and technique is required to ensure its success in curved root canals sterilization.
Efficacy of calcium hydroxide, Er:YAG laser or gaseous ozone against Enterococcus faecalis in root canals.
TLDR
The antibacterial efficacy was significantly increased by the additional use of NaOCl or CHX as irrigants in all subgroups (Groups 3 and 4) compared to corresponding subgroups of Group 1 (Mann-Whitney test).
Effectiveness of the erbium:YAG laser and new design radial and stripped tips in removing the smear layer after root canal instrumentation
TLDR
The study showed that standardized instrumentation, followed by a final Er:YAG laser irradiation in wet canals with EDTA irrigation resulted in more cleaning of the root canal walls and a higher quantity of open tubules in comparison with the traditional irrigation method.
Bactericidal effect of a Nd:YAG laser on Enterococcus faecalis at pulse durations of 15 and 25 ms in dentine depths of 500 and 1,000 μm
TLDR
The results of this in vitro study showed that Nd:YAG laser irradiation with a pulse duration of 15 ms eliminated an average of 49% and 29% of E. faecalis at dentine depths of 500 μm and 1,000  μm, respectively, and irradiation without pulse durations eliminated 70% and 50% respectively, lower than those achieved with the established protocol using microsecond pulses.
Decontamination of root canals with the gallium-aluminum-arsenide laser: an in vitro study.
TLDR
The use of NaOCl, citric acid, and diode laser energy together have a synergistic effect, increasing treatment efficacy and leading to significantly better decontamination of the root canal.
