The main goal of an endodontist is to save natural teeth. There are many procedures in place that make this possible - and GentleWave makes it easier. By incorporating this new technology, endodontists are able to provide patients with a special and unique procedure that surpasses the capability of traditional endodontic procedures.
What is GentleWave Technology?
GentleWave technology is an innovative alternative to standard endodontic care - primarily root canal treatment. A broad range of sound waves is delivered into the troubled tooth along with a steady stream of fluids. In tandem, this can clean and disinfect all areas and canals within a tooth. This is all done quickly and painlessly.
Root Canals with GentleWave
Root canal treatment using GentleWave is a non-invasive approach to clearing out infection and bacteria. It uses fluids and sound waves to extend to the innermost areas of the tooth that are hard to reach. A vortex is created allowing fluids to flow in and out of every crevice within the tooth.
In traditional root canals, files are used to clean out the infections in these small canals. However, they are limited in the areas that they can reach - especially for canals that are sitting horizontally. The risk for re-infection is greater as is the need for retreatment. With GentleWave, this isn’t a concern at all since the fluid can make its way into every area of the tooth, no matter how complex the situation.
Benefits of GentleWave
When it comes to choosing an innovative solution like GentleWave over more traditional treatment methods, there are many advantages. So, what benefits does it bring to patients in need of endodontic care? Let’s take a look.
- Minimally invasive technique. With traditional root canals, endodontists need to drill a large enough hole in the tooth to be able to access the canals with the files. With GentleWave, all the extra space is unnecessary since the fluids and sound waves do all the work.
- Reduced pain. Local anesthetic is used during traditional root canals to eliminate pain, but once that wears off, discomfort is common. This is not something that generally occurs after being treated using GentleWave.
- More effective. Simply put, this new system using fluids and sound waves can more easily and effectively clear out the infection and reduce the need for retreatment.
- Faster healing. Because the procedure is less invasive, healing happens at a faster rate.
- Improved oral health. Infection can wreak havoc on your oral health. With GentleWave, you can feel confident that it has been cleaned out and treated, leaving you with an improved level of oral health.
