If you are looking for information on root canal treatments, chances are you have a serious oral infection and may be in pain.
Delaying a Root Canal Treatment can cause a host of complications including – bone loss, spread of infection and severe pain1. Like most health care procedures it is sensible to be proactive and address any problems before they become serious.
At Laser + Holistic Dental our dentists use the revolutionary PIPS method to treat root canal infections. PIPS uses a special laser to quickly and effectively remove debris and kill off the pathogens causing the infection.
Research has shown that using the PIPS method – bacterial kill rates range between 99.95-100%2, and most patients require only one visit for the treatment instead of 3-4 visits for a standard root canal.
