I have a tooth decay so am planning to get root canal treatment. My friends are suggesting me to go for advanced root canal treatment using laser. Can anyone help me about this?

Rct is conventional done by giving xyloxaine injection whereas laser is minimally invasive n it's latest.

Hello, Yes, it is possible but results are limited, with very few dentist having the armamentarium for lasers. You can go for rotary root canal t/t with very good results. The main principle of rct is complete sterile root canals, use of lasers for complete rct is still debatable. Regards!
