GentleWave Root Canal Procedure

How does the GentleWave® Procedure’s Mechanism of Action Work?

Being diagnosed with an infection within your root canal system is probably the last thing you want. Fortunately, there is a root canal therapy option that is more comfortable than standard root canal treatment (RCT)4—and reaches into the microscopic spaces of the root canal system that standard RCT cannot!2, 3

An Alternative to Standard Root Canal Treatment

The GentleWave® Procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to standard root canal treatment.1 The innovative procedure utilizes Multisonic Ultracleaning® technology, which enables procedure fluids to reach through the entire root canal system,1 providing efficient cleaning of the complex root canal anatomies.1

Powered by Multisonic Ultracleaning

Unlike ultrasonic wavelength technology, which is widely used in dentistry, the GentleWave Procedure uses multisonic technology. This means that multiple acoustic frequencies are generated at the same time, and when this technology is paired with optimized procedure fluids, the GentleWave System cleans even the deepest, most complex portions of the root canal system.1,2

To visualize how Multisonic Ultracleaning works, envision a vortex of cleaning fluids traveling into the roots of your tooth. Even though the root canal system can be very complex, with several twists and turns, this vortex of fluids is able to reach the deepest portions that the files used in standard RCT simply cannot.2, 3

Breakthrough Technology

The GentleWave System is a product of years of research and development. The result is a root canal alternative that doesn’t require many of the instruments and steps that standard root canal treatment does.

The GentleWave System’s closed-loop Multisonic Ultracleaning technology can help to preserve more of your natural tooth,2 while also eliminating the need for a majority of the instrumentation used during standard RCT. Described as more comfortable than standard RCT,4 the GentleWave Procedure is a sought-after root canal alternative, especially when patients learn it can typically be completed in just one visit!4

The GentleWave® Procedure is a medical procedure that is designed to prepare, clean and preserve the structure of teeth1,2,4 indicated for root canal therapy. Similar to other root canal treatment procedures, there is a potential risk of adverse effects. If you are considering the GentleWave Procedure, ask your clinician if you are a proper candidate.
