    Comparison of the Bactericidal Effects of Two Different Diode Laser Wavelengths 810 NM And 980 NM within the Treatment of E. Faecalis-Infected Root Canals
    Author(s): Murtadha Mustafa Thamer* and Salah Alkurtas A

    Background: A variety of causes can lead to endodontic treatment failure, including bacterial persistence, insufficient root canal cleansing or obturation, incorrect coronal seal, and untreated canals (missed canals). The endodontic treatment failure arises from many reasons and the main one is the existence of some bacterial species inside the root canals like the Enterococcus faecalis , which is the most common type. It possesses unique characteristics that enable it to evade disinfection leading to radicular inflammation. Newer laser technology disinfection techniques have been recommended to be effective for routine endodontic treatment as a result of the development of the potent antimicrobial capabilities of lasers in recent years. Aim: In vitro study, comparative between the influences of two various wavelengths of diode laser (810 nm.. Read More»
