The GentleWave® Procedure is an alternative to standard root canal treatment. The latest and most innovative technology in the field of endodontics, the GentleWave System is a major breakthrough in the age-old problem of trying to clean out the very complex root canal system within the tooth.
Multi-rooted teeth contain an intricate system of channels for nerves and blood vessels. While traditional methods do a good job cleaning the main channels, they don’t do as well cleaning out these complex channels. GentleWave was designed to specifically address this issue.
Standard root canal treatment frequently can’t provide the level of debridement and disinfection as the GentleWave Procedure can, often leaving behind tissue that can lead to reinfection. GentleWave reaches into the microscopic spaces to clean and disinfect the root canal system, leaving less chance for failure.
GentleWave uses sound waves in concert with continuous irrigation to clean and disinfect the entire network of canals in a matter of minutes. The system also allows Dr. Garland to conserve more tooth structure, leaving the roots stronger to help resist fracture under heavy chewing forces.
