The GentleWave® Difference

Changing the Perception About Root Canals

The GentleWave Procedure

What is GentleWave?

Cleaning the highly complex anatomy of the root canal system can present a real challenge in root canal therapy. Our Pensacola practice is meeting this challenge like never before with the state-of-the-art endodontic technology of the GentleWave procedure.

The GentleWave Procedure is an innovative alternative to standard root canal treatment that uses a powerful combination of procedure fluids and energy to clean the deepest, most complex portions of the root canal system—including the microscopic spaces that standard root canal treatments can miss. The GentleWave Procedure is so effective at cleaning the root canal system, there’s less chance of failure over time.

THE PROCESS

How Does GentleWave Work?

GentleWave is revolutionary for endodontics. Crucial to delivering a comfortable patient experience with root canals, GentleWave can make your treatment fast and more pleasant.

Dr. Todd with Patient

Standard root canals are manual action by nature. In standard root canal therapy, an endodontist will drill a hole in the infected tooth, and begin removing the infected tissue with a series of files. The problem with this is simple. The files are rigid and stiff. They cannot fit inside the smallest parts of the tooth easily, so this often leads to missed tissue and bacteria left behind. While a local anesthetic can numb the tooth, there will still be some discomfort. But, with GentleWave, we use disinfecting fluids and acoustic energy to completely disinfect the root canal system and remove all the infected tissue to ensure that the treatment is as minimally invasive and as painless as possible.

The GentleWave procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to standard root canal treatment. The innovative procedure utilizes Multisonic Ultracleaning® technology, which enables procedure fluids to reach through the entire root canal system, providing efficient cleaning of the complex root canal anatomies.

With the GentleWave procedure, our Pensacola endodontic team can typically clean and fill the tooth in just one session, helping reduce what is typically a multiple-visit procedure to just one. The minimally invasive protocol also helps preserve more of the natural tooth, helping keep the tooth’s structure strong. This less-invasive approach helps to promote fast healing, so you can quickly return to your normal routine.
