What Is the GentleWave Ultracleaning Procedure?

If you’re looking for an alternative to standard root canal treatment, you’re not alone! More and more people are looking for a minimally invasive procedure that still delivers exceptional cleaning and disinfection. They’re finding the GentleWave Ultracleaning Procedure — and they’re loving the results!

Once you see the difference the GentleWave Ultracleaning Procedure can make, you’ll understand what makes it today’s alternative to standard root canal treatment. Go in-depth with these extreme close-ups and see how the GentleWave Ultracleaning Procedure can deliver a higher standard of clean throughout your root canal system.

Advanced 3D Imaging (CBCT)

In addition to the advanced education and training of our doctors and staff, we also utilize the most advanced dental and facial imaging equipment available. This helps us ensure optimal success for every procedure.

Digital cat scanning with our Carestream 9300 allows us to take 3-Dimensional, high resolution CAT scans of your facial anatomy. We can then view these images from different angles, take precise measurements, and easily share 3-D data with other doctors. This leads to greater predictability for procedures, and the best possible results.

Real Cleaning

The GentleWave System’s technology uses broad spectrum acoustic energy and advanced fluid dynamics to flush away debris and tissues from your entire root canal system. It dissolves organic tissue up to 7x faster than conventional devices even cleaning microscopic spaces that can’t be reached by standard root canal treatment.

Real Comfort

Instead of relying on multiple instruments to clean the root canal system, following minimal instrumentation the GentleWave System uses a sterilized single-use procedure instrument to deliver broad spectrum acoustic energy and a powerful vortex of optimized procedure fluids throughout the canals. Many patients - especially those who have previously undergone standard root canal treatment - described the GentleWave Procedure as comfortable.

Real Convenience

Standard root canal treatment often involves multiple visits to your dentist or endodontist. But the GentleWave Procedure can usually be completed in just one visit at our pain-free dental practice. It’s ideal for patients with busy schedules.

Keep Your Natural Tooth

Some patients who need root canal treatment opt instead for having their tooth removed and replaced with a dental implant. But dental implants require extracting the tooth, followed by multiple surgeries to insert a metal post in the jaw and affix a porcelain crown to the post. These surgeries often can take three or more visits to complete. The GentleWave Procedure is designed to help you save your natural tooth, and is usually completed in just one visit.

An Alternative to Standard Root Canal Treatment

Standard root canal treatment uses a series of instruments and treatment fluids to remove the infected tissue and disinfect the root canal system. But standard root canal treatment can leave behind some of the infected tissue, especially if the tooth has a complex root system, which could increase your rest for re-infection. Not only that, it often requires multiple visits to complete.

The GentleWave Ultracleaning Procedure offers a level of clean that standard root canal treatment simply cannot match, and it delivers an experience that people truly appreciate! And not only can most GentleWave Procedures be completed in just one session, but they can also reduce the potential for endodontic retreatments over time!

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.

Here's What People Are Saying

If you’ve been told you need a root canal treatment, it’s natural to be a little anxious. Take it from GentleWave patients, including many people who have had a standard root canal treatment in the past—the GentleWave difference is truly remarkable.
