    A laser may be used to gain access to the infected nerve and clean, shape, enlarge and disinfect the root canal (Endodontics). Advantages of using a laser to perform a root canal are that the procedure oftentimes may be performed without anesthesia and its use conserves as much natural tooth structure and strength as possible.
