TwinLight® Endodontic Treatment

Fotona’s TwinLight® Endodontic Treatment (TET) successfully addresses the two major disadvantages of classical chemo-mechanical treatment procedures: the inability to clean and debride anatomically complex root-canal systems and to deeply disinfect dentinal walls and tubules.

Fast, Effective and Minimally Invasive Treatments

  • In the first step of the TwinLight® treatment process, a revolutionary photon-induced photoacoustic streaming method is employed, using the power of the Er:YAG laser to create non-thermal photoacoustic shock waves within the cleaning and debriding solutions present in the canal. Following this photoacoustic treatment, the canals and subcanals are left clean and the dentinal tubules are free of a smear layer. The process is also highly effective for final water rinsing prior to obturation.

  • In the second step of the TwinLight® endodontic treatment, a deeply penetrating Nd:YAG laser wavelength is utilized to thoroughly decontaminate the dentinal walls up to 1000 μm deep. In this step, the high peak-pulse power of the Nd:YAG laser plays an important role as it induces maximum temperature pulsing for elimination of bacteria.

Optimal Wavelength Combination

Utilizing a combination of Er:YAG and Nd:YAG laser wavelengths in endodontic treatments makes optimum use of the unique laser-tissue interaction characteristics of each wavelength. The combined power of the Er:YAG-induced shock waves in the cleaning solutions and the Nd:YAG laser’s superior bactericidal effect can dramatically improve the outcome of laser-assisted endodontic treatments, guaranteeing maximum efficacy and long-term success.
