Experience the GentleWave® Procedure, an innovative alternative to standard root canal treatment. It presents a major advancement that helps us achieve our goal to effectively clean a tooth’s entire root canal system, no matter how complex. The root canal system consists of intricate channels for the nerves and blood vessels. We are always evaluating technological advancements and incorporating them into our practice when we believe that doing so will help us provide a higher level of care than previously possible and help us save more teeth for more of our patients. The GentleWave® System delivers a broad range of sound waves within the complex anatomy found within the tooth, in concert with continuous fluid delivery. In a matter of minutes, this procedure 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. We are very proud to be able to offer this level of care to our patients. The Root Canal Place is trained in the use of the GentleWave® System and will gladly answer any questions you may have about this exciting new technology.
