  • Publication number: 20190336219
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for treating a root canal in a tooth or hard and/or soft tissue within a tooth and surrounding tissues by pulsing a laser light into a reservoir, preferably after introducing liquid fluid into the reservoir, so as to disintegrate, separate, or otherwise neutralize pulp, plaque, calculus, and/or bacteria within and adjacent the fluid reservoir without elevating the temperature of any of the dentin, tooth, bones, gums, other soft tissues, other hard tissues, and any other adjacent tissue more than about 5° C.

  • Publication number: 20180008347
    Abstract: A method treating a root canal in a tooth by introducing into the pulp chamber of a tooth and pulsing a laser light into the fluid reservoir so as to disintegrate pulp within the root canal without generation of any significant heat in said liquid fluid so as to avoid elevating the temperature of any of the dentin, tooth, or other adjacent tissue more than about 5? C.

  • Publication number: 20160318014
    Abstract: A pipette tip for use with a liquid handler is disclosed. The pipette tip includes a mandrel engaging portion positioned at a proximal end of the pipette tip and an elongated body extending distally from the mandrel engaging portion. The mandrel engaging portion includes an orifice at the proximal end of the pipette tip and an inner surface defining a lumen that is configured to engage a mandrel of a head of the liquid handler. The elongated body includes a proximal end portion adjacent the mandrel engaging portion, an intermediate portion, and a distal portion adjacent to an orifice at a distal end of the elongated body. The elongated body also includes an inner surface defining an interior cavity within the elongated body extending between the proximal end portion of the elongated body and the distal end. The elongated body has a wall thickness at the proximal end of the elongated body that does not exceed about 0.025 inches and a wall thickness adjacent the distal end that does not exceed about 0.

  • Publication number: 20140220511
    Abstract: The specification discloses embodiments and other information concerning methods, systems, and apparatus in accordance with aspects of the subject invention for treating diseased root canals in teeth and other dental condition, such as periodontitis and the like wherein a laser light is pulsed from a laser fiber optic tip into liquid contained in a reservoir or other space within the canal, periodontal sulcus/pocket, or other dental space immersing the area in need of treatment so as to disintegrate, separate, or otherwise neutralize pulp, plaque, calculus, bacteria, and other microbes, thus annihilating and particleizing undesirable material within the liquid in the reservoir by the action of relatively intense, photoacoustic micro-pressure waves propagating throughout the liquid as a result of the laser light pulses emitted into the liquid from the tip, thereby enabling easy removal of the particles by finely dispersing the same in the liquid and then flushing the particle-laden liquid from the area by hydr
