A novel SWEEPS® Er:YAG laser modality was recently introduced with the purpose of improving the disinfecting and activating efficacy of SSP laser assisted endodontic procedures by permitting the generation of primary and secondary shock waves throughout the complicated root canal system. The SWEEPS method greatly improves the efficacy of removing debris and medications from the root canal system. In the most current Er:YAG dental laser devices, the complimentary combination of SSP and SWEEPS®

The aim of this review is to: (i) Offer the most relevant data on a novel SWEEPS (shock wave enhanced emission photoacoustic streaming) technology, its relative advantages, with an emphasis on single-pulse SSP laser-assisted irrigation and dual pulse SWEEPS technology; (ii) Provide recommendations for the use of SWEEPS technology in Endodontics based on current evidence; (iii) Highlight the areas in which more research is required.
