We are constantly updating the way we practice dental health and advancements like this system improve our ability to deliver exceptional patient care. Over 15 million root canal procedures are completed in the United States to save infected or damaged teeth. The GentleWave® System represents an innovative, minimally invasive way of cleaning root canals using breakthrough Multisonic Ultracleaning™ technology to aid us in every root canal procedure.
The GentleWave System provides a powerful combination of broad spectrum sound energy and advanced fluid dynamics that reach throughout the tooth structure and result in a remarkable level of clean. In the GentleWave Procedure, a sterilized instrument delivers a vortex of procedure fluids through your tooth, cleaning debris from canal walls and thoroughly disinfecting in the places where bacteria live. Tissue, debris and bacteria are virtually eliminated, even in the microscopic tubules that traditional methods cannot reach, preserving vital tooth structure, providing unprecedented disinfection, and delivering a level of clean that has not been achievable until now.
The GentleWave Procedure replaces the standard instrumentation protocol that we normally follow to clean out all the bacteria from inside the roots. We will still access through the tooth, find each canal, and minimally instrument to gain patency, or in other words, open up each ofthe canals. Once we obtain patency for each canal, we will create a platform to rest the GentleWave single-use instrument on. We then run through the spectrum of sound and fluid dynamics to clean deep inside each canal. Once the GentleWave procedure is complete, we finish the root canal treatment as usual with permanent filling material and a build up to restore functionality. You may still need to return to your general dentist for new restoration as necessary.
The GentleWave Procedure offers the following Advantages:
The broad spectrum acoustic energy enables fluids to travel through your root canal system, removing virtually all infected tissue and supporting fast healing.
Treatment can usually be completed in one visit because it is a higher level of clean.
Uses a single-use sterilized instrument to reach throughout the complex network of canals without having to cycle through multiple instruments.
This advanced new Multisonic Ultracleaning technology is so effective at cleaning and disinfecting the entire root canal system that you will be at far less risk for reinfection.
