GentleWave Root Canals
Saving Teeth Through Sound Science
Have you been told you need a root canal?
If you have an infected nerve in your tooth or bacterial build up that is damaging your interior tissue, your dentist may recommend a root canal procedure.
A traditional root canal involves filing inside of your tooth, which is a process that leaves bacteria behind as it can miss up to 60% of the canal walls. Many of the microscopic spaces where bacteria can hide remain untouched during a this procedure, and that can mean you’ll end up requiring another root canal procedure later on.
We have introduced the GentleWave® procedure, the very latest and most innovative technology in the field of Endodontics, to replace a 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 molars, consists of intricate channels for the nerves and blood vessels.
This 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.
Multisonic Ultracleaning™ technology’s broad spectrum acoustic energy removes debris and tissue from your entire root canal system. It’s able to dissolve organic tissue 8x faster than conventional devices, and it reaches into the microscopic spaces that conventional root canal treatments cannot.
The GentleWave® procedure relies far less on instrumentation to clean your root canal system. Instead, the GentleWave® System uses a single-use sterilized handpiece to deliver broad spectrum acoustic technology and a powerful vortex of cleaning fluids throughout the canal. Many patients—especially those who have undergone root canal procedures in the past—describe the experience as comfortable.
Unlike many conventional methods, GentleWave root canal procedures can usually be completed in just one visit. In addition, because Multisonic Ultracleaning™ technology is so effective at cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system, you will be less likely to require additional treatments in years to come.
Multisonic Ultracleaning™ Technology: Advancing the Standard of Clean for Your Teeth.
Root canal procedures can save infected or damaged teeth by removing the pulp and bacteria from inside the tooth. Traditionally, this process has relied on metal files that physically scrape away decay and diseased tissue from within an infected root canal. But these files cannot easily reach everywhere within the canal, leaving as much as 60% of the canal space untouched. That means that bacteria is left to multiply inside your tooth—and over time, you could find yourself right back in your endodontist’s chair.
The GentleWave® System represents an innovative new way of cleaning your root canal. With breakthrough Multisonic Ultracleaning™ technology, a powerful vortex of treatment fluids, plus multiple waves of broad spectrum acoustic energy enable treatment fluids to reach every surface. Tissue, debris and bacteria are virtually eliminated, even in the microscopic tubules that traditional methods cannot reach providing unprecedented disinfection and a clean that has never been achieved before.
Once you compare patented Multisonic Ultracleaning technology to traditional root canal methods, you’ll see what sets GentleWave treatments apart.
