GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure
A Better Root Canal
We are excited to share with you a new option for root canal treatment. With GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure patented technology, we can now give our patients a root canal procedure that is quicker, more reliable, and often, more comfortable than ever before.
Less Chance of Reinfection
Because the root systems of teeth are so complex, it can be difficult to reach all areas with a traditional root canal, which utilizes a series of files to remove bacteria and diseased material. By contrast, the GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure uses multisonic energy and specialized fluids to reach every corner and crevice of the tooth for a more complete cleaning and less chance of reinfection.
How does the GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure work?
The GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure combines acoustic energy and optimized fluids to reach every part of the root system, including the interior porous surfaces, which can’t be thoroughly cleaned with endodontic files. With traditional root canal treatment, biofilm often remains, and can lead to a reinfection of the roots within weeks. However, with the GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure, all of the biofilm is removed in a single session so there is little risk of a second infection.
Benefits of GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure
- Comfortable: Because it is less invasive than large files, it is also often more comfortable.
- One-Treatment Procedure: The process is so effective; it is often allows us to treat most teeth in one visit, which traditionally we would have treated in multiple visits.
- A Cleaner Clean: The combination of fluids and ultrasonic waves ensures a deeper cleaning in areas where bacteria can hide from endodontic files.
What is Multisonic Ultracleaning™?
Traditional ultrasound wavelength technology relies on a single wavelength. With Multisonic Ultracleaning™, however, multiple frequencies are used at the same time and combined with special fluids to deliver the deepest clean.
