Photon Induced Photoacoustic Streaming (PIPS)

The Biggest Endodontic Advancement in Decades!

Effective , Fast, Minimally Invasive Therapy.

  1. Extremely hight sucess rate with no need to repeat procedures
  2. No more physical strain associated with conventional root canal cleaning
  3. Minimal filing
  4. Preserves much more tooth endoskeleton
  5. Faster, safer, and more efficient

What is Photo Induced Photoacoustic Streaming (PIPS™)?

PIPS™ harnesses the power of the LightWalker proprietary, digitally-pulsed Er:YAG laser to create sub-ablative, photoacoustic shock waves within the cleaning and debriding solutions introduced in the canal. The containment of the shockwaves thoroughly streams these solutions three-dimensionally through the entire canal system, enhancing their effectiveness. The canals and subcanals are left clean and the dentinal tubules are free of smear layer. PIPS™ is equally effective for final water rinsing prior to obturation. With PIPS™ practitioners are able to offer patients faster, safer and more effective root canal treatments.

Following PIPS™ endo laser treatment, the opening to the lateral canals are free of smear layer

How is PIPS™ Therapy Applied?

  1. Access the canal with the Er:YAG laser
  2. Minimally Invasive Instrumentation to preserve the tooth endoskeleton for improved strength, integrity, and longevity.
  3. PIPS™ the canal with the LightWalker Er:YAG laser using the simple PIPS™ procedure protocol
  4. Obturate as you normally would or nwith advanced endodontic filling resins such as EndoREZ EndoREZ® from UltraDent®

Why is LightWalker Perfect for PIPS™?

With the PIPS™ procedure available only with LightWalker, the super short 50 microsecond pulse duration combined with the efficient design of the Er:YAG tip, allows the lowest possible energy per pulse and repetition rate. This minimizes thermal effects and maximizes the propagation of the photon induced photoacoustic shock waves.

Additionally, LightWalker features the ultimate in convenience and ergonomics. Its easy-to-use touch screen offers a simple menu of pre-programmed endodontic treatments. You pick the treatment and the laser automatically sets your optimum starting parameters.

Enjoy a Much Higher Success Rates

Clinical experience shows that PIPS™ is much more effective than traditional methods. Namely, there is deeper disinfection efficacy, more effective root canal cleaning, reduction of permeability and reduction of micro-leakage.

Dental lasers are the perfect tool for fast, easy to perform, and extremely effective treatment of root canal infections and a patient-friendly alternative to conventional techniques.
