Experience the GentleWave® Procedure, an innovative alternative to standard root canal treatment. It presents a major advancement that helps us achieve our goal to clean out the very complex root canal system within the tooth. The root canal system in multi-rooted teeth, especially premolars and molars, consists of intricate channels for the nerves and blood vessels. While our standard methods of cleaning out the root canal system do a very good job with the main canals, we are always evaluating technological advancements and incorporating them into our practice when we believe that doing so will help us provide a higher level of care than previously possible and help us save more teeth for more of our patients.
The GentleWave® System delivers a broad range of sound waves within the complex anatomy found with the tooth in concert with continuous irrigation. And, in a matter of minutes, results in complete cleaning and disinfecting of the entire network of canals. The incredible effectiveness of this system also allows us to conserve more tooth structure than ever before.
We are very proud to be able to offer this level of care to our patients. Our doctors are fully certified in the use of the GentleWave® System and will gladly answer any questions you may have about this exciting new technology.
STANDARD ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
In a standard root canal treatment, a series of files are used to reach inside the tooth and mechanically remove the infected tissue. For decades, it has been the prevailing method of cleaning root canal systems.
Root canal systems, however, are highly complex, with twists and turns that make it difficult for files to reach everywhere. In addition, there are microscopic places along the canal walls where bacteria can hide.
The bacteria left behind will continue to multiply, which can cause the infection to return. As a result, you may find that you require another root canal treatment down the road.
THE GENTLEWAVE ALTERNATIVE: TECHNOLOGY THAT SAVES TEETH
The GentleWave® System uses advanced fluid dynamics to create a vortex of procedure fluids that travel through your root canal system. Along the way, broad spectrum acoustic energy helps remove the tissue and debris that cause infection. Unlike standard root canal treatments, the GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure is able to reach all throughout your tooth—even in the microscopic places where bacteria can hide.
