As endodontic specialists, it is our main focus to help repair and save our patients natural tooth or teeth. Root canal therapy is needed when a tooth becomes decayed and/or infected with bacteria.
During traditional root canal therapy, a dentist or endodontist first numbs the patient, then drills into the tooth to allow access to the pulp. Once the tooth is “opened”, a cleaning solution is introduced into the root canal space using various files to disinfect the tooth.
Honolulu Endodontics proudly offers our patients a new breakthrough in endodontic treatment. Our office now utilizes Photon Induced Photoacoustic Streaming (PIPS) in combination with the Lightwalker ER:YAG Laser.
Root canal therapy that is done using this new technology is faster, relatively painless, and offers more benefits for our patients.
