Pre-congress course: Fotona: Laser activated SWEEPS® irrigation

HANDS-ON AND LECTURE COURSE

This course is designed to provide evidence-based core knowledge in the use of lasers in endodontics. The revolutionary photoacoustic streaming method uses the power of the Er:YAG laser with specially designed laser modalities and fiber tips to create non-thermal photoacoustic shock waves within the irrigant. Investigations have demonstrated that the activation of endodontic irrigants inside the canal structure results in in-depth cleaning and disinfection. Further advantages, such as less time and less instrumentation needed for a more effective treatment, will be discussed.

Aims: You will learn the SSP protocol, also known as the Fotona LightWalker's PIPS protocol, a unique Laser Activated Irrigation (LAI) procedure that will improve your results in root canal therapy. Recently introduced additional SWEEPS (Shock Wave Enhanced Emission Photoacoustic Streaming) protocols will also be described. Emphasis will be placed on the integration of YOUR commonly performed root canal therapy with laser technology, on the improvement of YOUR clinical results, and on performing step-by-step techniques in root canal therapy to ensure optimal benefits for YOUR patients.
