In dentistry, the use of lasers has grown in popularity. It has improved the outcome of dental procedures and prognosis, as evidenced by numerous publications in dentistry generally. In endodontic technology, laser was introduced to improve the results of normal treatments by removing more debris and smear layer from the canal and enhancing cleaning ability. Mechanical cleaning, chemical irrigation, and an ultrasonic instrument have all been used to enhance root canal cleanliness. Nowadays, lasers have had a revolutionary impact on endodontics; they are mostly utilized for disinfecting root canals with improved outcomes and the ability to enter into more complicated root canal anatomy, such as the lateral canal. The goal of the current article was to give an idea about the current and future applications of lasers in clinical endodontics include, diagnostics of the pulp, non- invasive access cavity, pulp capping and pulpotomy, root canal debridement and shaping, 3 D obturation and retreatment and endodontic surgery.
