Laser Enhanced Ablation Procedure


  • Minimal file sequence and dentin removal
  • Minimal rinsing/irrigation steps
  • Easy-to-use
  • Low cost per procedure
  • Reduce treatment time
  • Affordable, reliable, repeatable
  • The diode laser can be used for other soft-tissue procedures

Working Principle

A laser absorption solution containing indocyanine green (ICG), LEAPTM solution has high absorption efficiency of 810nm diode laser energy. At optimal conditions, the laser induces a local thermal explosion to ablate residual and infected tissues in the canal without heating the surrounding dentin. The LEAP solution is injected with a 30-gauge needle with the laser energy delivered through a specialized 200μm tip. The canal only needs to be enlarged to about 250μm size in the apical third area.

  • Step 1
    • Create access
  • Step 2
  • Use hand file to remove major tissues;
  • Using any file or file system to open 0.25 access in apical third using NaOCl as lubricant;
  • Rinse with EDTA;
  • Dry with paper point
  • Step 3
  • Inject LEAP solution to fill canal;
  • Solution remains in place for 1 minute
  • Step 4
  • Insert laser tip to 2mm from apex;
  • Use Leap setting to activate laser;
  • Slowly withdraw laser tip out of canal over a 30-second period;
  • Repeat above procedure a second time.
  • Step 5
  • Rinse the canal with sterile saline;
  • Dry the canal with sterile paper point
  • Step 6
  • Seal the canal with BC sealer and GP cone

Clinical Results

An Independent clinical study of more than 90 patients demonstrates that LEAP can achieve above 99.9% bacterial reduction and greater patient comfort, independent of the user or file system.*

  • 75% had no pain
  • 12.5 % had level 1 pain, gone in 1 day
  • 12.5% had level 2 pain, gone in 1 day
