Laser Root Canal (Endodontic) Therapy in Glendale, AZ
The most effective treatment option for saving a salvageable tooth in the Phoenix Valley
Dr. Chang uses Dental lasers to open tooth surfaces to access the root canals without using any traditional dental drills or tools. They produce heat and pressure that literally “melt away” any infection during treatment and sterilize the root canal space. Dr. Chang can also penetrate complex areas, including the lateral canal, which is often quite challenging to clean effectively. That allows for greater accuracy and speed, and the affected tooth is left much cleaner and less prone to reinfection. Dr. Chang has found Lasers to be ideal for dental procedures that involve cutting or contouring soft tissues. They are highly effective and offer extreme precision in cutting through the gums or other soft tissue while eliminating any bleeding and reducing the healing time.
SWEEPS® (Shock Wave Enhanced Emission Photoacoustic Streaming) is an advanced method for cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system. Utilizing the power of advanced twin-light lasers, Dr. Chang creates powerful, deeply penetrating shockwaves within the patients tooth, reaching areas that traditional methods can sometime miss.
Laser Assisted Irrigation improves the success of endodontic therapy even with complex root structures. It enhances the cleaning and decontamination of root canals for safe, fast, and fewer treatments.

I'm not sure that most would look at an appointment for a root canal as pleasurable, but I can honestly say that we enjoyed every second that we were there. The amount of time and attention paid to teaching and explaining was so appreciated. We were so comfortable with them that we ended up doing the treatment the same day.
My first visit was very personal. My daughter and I went together and they spent as much time needed with each of us to explain all procedures and to answer any questions either of us may have had. We never felt rushed and appreciated the fact that they got to know us. Will definitely recommend SC Dentistry!

Dr. Chang and his wonderful staff are all very friendly and very thorough! They gave me a wonderful experience at his office throughout each and every visit. I am a chiropractor and I personally refer patients to him on a regular basis!
Fast, Effective and Minimally Invasive Treatments with Two Complementary Laser Technologies
The SSP (Super Short Pulse) irrigation (also known as Photon Induced Photo-acoustic Streaming) uses the Er:YAG laser to create non-thermal photoacoustic waves within the cleaning and debriding solutions introduced in the canal. Following this photoacoustic treatment, the canals and sub canals are left clean, and the dentinal tubules are free of a smear layer.
The latest SWEEPS® (Shock Wave Enhanced Emission Photo-acoustic Streaming) Er:YAG laser modality additionally improves the irrigation and disinfecting efficacy of laser endodontics. By using synchronized pairs of ultra-short pulses, an accelerated collapse of laser-induced bubbles is achieved, leading to enhanced shockwave emission even inside the narrowest root canals.
