What Makes the Gentlewave Procedure Different
Sound and fluid don’t seem like endodontic tools. However, the Gentlewave system leverages the forces of acoustic energy (sound) and fluid dynamics to clean out root canals effectively. Even those with the most complex internal anatomy have cleared canals when treated with the Gentlewave system.
Because Gentlewave uses fluids to reach inside the tooth, it does not as many files as a traditional root canal. Therefore, you experience less weakening of the tooth’s structure.
The fluid flowing through the tooth provides gentle yet powerful cleaning to remove infected or inflamed pulp and bacteria from every crevice of the canals.
How Our Patients Benefits from Gentlewave Technology During Their Root Canal Treatments
If you still need to figure out whether you can benefit from Gentlewave technology for your root canal treatment, look at the statistics on the process’s efficacy.
One of the most common myths about root canals is that the procedure is painful. You will not have pain during the root canal at Southwest Endodontics. We know how to use anesthesia to numb your mouth during the process effectively. However, you may feel some discomfort once the numbing agent wears off.
Among patients who have their root canal treatments with the Gentlewave system, 96.6% reported that their pain just 48 hours after the procedure was either completely gone or only mild. Plus, 97.7% had complete healing when evaluated 12 months later.
Another perk of the Gentlewave technology is its speed. Because it effectively cleans out the tooth, most patients (92.1%) only need a single visit for their root canal. If you don’t want to minimize the time you take out of your daily life for endodontic appointments, see us at Southwest Endodontics. The Gentlewave method allows us to give our patients faster, more effective root canals.
