Some entertaining tips regarding root canal therapy with CREED in the background! Watch as a patient of Dr. Nick’s is trying to sing “Higher” in the middle of her laser-assisted root canal therapy, and keep an eye out for some of the celebrities that assist us with this presentation 😉 Dr. Nick routinely uses the Fotona Lightwalker erbium-YAG laser to improve root canal outcomes via usage of the Shock Wave Enhanced Photoacoustic Streaming (SWEEPS) protocols. May the “SWEEPS” force be with you” if you are in need of root canal therapy… Make sure your dentist or endodontist augments his/her root canal therapy with this sort of technologically advanced treatment to increase the likelihood of success!
