  • 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… CONTINUE READING
