In vitro preliminary study to evaluate the capability of Er,Cr:YSGG laser in posterior teeth root-canal preparation with step-back technique

Abstract

This preliminary study was to investigate in vitro the Er,Cr:YSGG laser ablation capability, both range (enlargement aspects of laser tips corresponded to conventional endodontic files) and quality (removing of smear layer and opening of dentinal tubules) to clean and shape the root canal for final obturation step. The crowns of 15 extracted multi-rooted… (More)
