SEE AN EXPERT WHO CLEANS ROOT CANALS USING THE GENTLEWAVE PROCEDURE
Bacteria form biofilms that hold millions of cells together in a glue-like covering. This biofilm helps the colony stick to root canal walls and prevents disinfecting solutions from ever reaching bacterial cells. No traditional endodontic technique is able to remove 100% of the debris and diseased tissue from root canals.
GentleWave is an innovative technology that is likely the greatest advancement in the field of endodontics in the past 100 years. It overcomes many limitations of traditional treatment methods.
Benefits of GentleWave Include:
Traditional techniques contact 65% or less of the root canal surface,, leaving residual tissue and bacteria in >80% of cases. GentleWave cleans 98% of the root canal space, including areas inaccessible by other methods,.
Traditional treatment methods require shaping the canals so needles can be placed deeper into roots to deliver disinfectants. This shaping removes precious tooth structure, leaving roots thinner and weaker. With GentleWave, only minimal shaping is required, leaving roots thicker and stronger. With traditional treatment methods, a small slurry of diseased tissue and disinfectant is forced out the end of the root into the jaw bone. Extrusion of debris is minimized with GentleWave through a single-use, sterile procedure instrument that simultaneously delivers and suctions away hundreds of milliliters of multisonically-energized treatment fluids throughout the entire root canal system.
Treatment can usually be completed in a single visit, and better disinfection decreases the risk for reinfection.
