Changing the Perception About Root Canals

The GentleWave Difference

Our practice offers an alternative to standard root canal therapy. Our patients describe it as “quick, easy, and comfortable”. The GentleWave Procedure isn’t simply for resolving your root canal system infection symptoms. It’s for saving your natural tooth—and your signature smile.


The GentleWave Procedure replaces much of the manual instrumentation in standard root canal therapy with optimized procedure fluids, helping prevent the removal of excess tooth structure to maintain its natural functionality and structural integrity.

The GentleWave Procedure’s high-tech fluid delivery system distributes fluids throughout your root canal system, reaching places where manual instruments cannot, and removing the infection from the entire root canal system while preserving valuable tooth structure.

In most cases, a GentleWave Procedure can be completed in just one appointment. And, because GentleWave Technology is so effective at cleaning the root canal system, there’s less chance of needing a root canal retreatment later.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy treats the center, or pulp, of a tooth that is inflamed, infected or dead. The pulp is a soft substance consisting of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Root canal therapy can help preserve your tooth for a lifetime.

Endodontic Retreatment

In most cases, a root canal preserves the natural tooth, allowing it to remain healthy for many more years. In rare instances, an infection can return months or even years after treatment. When this occurs, endodontic retreatment may be recommended.

Endodontic Surgery

Apicoectomy is a minor treatment that involves removing the infected tip of a tooth root, then sealing the interior of the tooth to prevent further infection. This is usually recommended when a root canal isn’t sufficient to save a tooth.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry uses medication to help you relax for a better dental care experience. It can even help patients with severe dental anxiety. Sedation allows your body to relax more completely and reduces the sensation of passing time.

Learn the Signs

When to See an Endodontist

Proper diagnosis is key to determining the best treatment. We’ll help you understand whether or not treatment is right for you. Root canal therapy removes harmful bacteria from your tooth, healing infection, ending your pain and improving your health. When decay or a crack has reached the nerve of a tooth, a root canal is necessary.
