The standards of endodontics have constantly been raised in the last 25 years by practitioners’ researches and their interests. Most scientists believe the recent developments and the use of lasers are the most exciting achievements in endodontic treatment. Nowadays, lasers are being used in endodontics to improve the prognosis of the root-filled teeth. The implementation of suitable wavelengths, together with conventional methods, can effectively sterilize the canal, dentin, and periapical regions. This article describes a successful treatment of an endodontic case using 810nm diode laser and low level laser and sixteen months follow-up to improve healing of the edema. Keywords: Bacteriocidal Effect; Diode Laser; Low Level Laser Therapy
