Published Cham : Springer, [2016]


Description 1 online resource : illustrations
Contents Endodontic Background: Endodontic morphology and anatomy of human teeth.- Shaping the Root Canal -- The Role of Irrigation in Endodontics. Basic Science of Laser Dentistry: The Physics of Lasers -- Different Laser types used in Endodontics. Clinical Applications of Laser in Endodontics: Conventional laser endodontics (direct laser irradiation) -- Photo activated disinfection (PAD) -- Laser applications for Pulp Therapy in primary tooth.

Summary This book offers up-to-date information on all aspects of the use of lasers in endodontics, focusing especially on the various laser applications, including primary and permanent root canal therapies, retreatments, apical surgery, and pulp therapy. Every laser technique used in endodontics is carefully described and illustrated, with detailed coverage of both conventional methods and more recent developments such as laser-activated irrigation and photon-induced photoacoustic streaming. In addition, a separate section addresses the basic science of laser dentistry, explaining the physics, describing laser-tissue interactions, and discussing different types of laser. Extensive reference is made to the international literature in order to provide the reader with a clear, evidence-based understanding of the merits of various approaches. In offering a balanced mix of descriptions of clinical applications, clinical data, scientific research, and logical criticism, the book will serve as an excellent reference for a wide audience comprising general dentists as well as specialists
