The lecture will present a series of evidence-based research that supports the clinical relevance of the presented technique, highlighted by clinical case evidence. Studies on fluid dynamics will explain how to modify the concept of "shaping for cleaning" while "minimizing the root canal shaping while optimizing cleansing and decontamination".
Major Topics:
Different irrigation techniques used in Endodontics;
Different techniques used for Erbium lasers in Endodontics (LAI, PIPS, SWEEPS);
Comparison among Er:YAG laser SSP/SWEEPS technology, Olivi's technique and sonic, ultrasonics and multisonics techologies and techniques
Learning Objectives: 
  1. to understand the limitations of the use of conventional systems for endodontic irrigation and the difference among sonic, ultrasonic, multisonic and SWEEPS laser activated irrigation;
  2. to understand how a laser works and the main advantages of SWEEPS technology for root canal irrigation;
