GentleWave®: Revolutionizing Root Canal Therapy
Dr. Malyala at Rivervalley Endodontics takes pride in offering GentleWave® technology that is revolutionizing endodontic treatment.
Cleaning the highly complex anatomy of the root canal system can present a real challenge in root canal therapy. Our 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 procedural fluids and broad-spectrum acoustic energy to clean the deepest, most complex portions (1,2) of the root canal system, including the microscopic spaces (1,2) that standard root canal treatment can miss. The GentleWave® procedure is so effective at cleaning the root canal system (1,2), there is less chance of failure over time (4).
With the GentleWave® procedure, we can typically clean and fill the tooth in just one session (3). The minimally invasive protocol also helps preserve more of the natural tooth (4), helping keep the tooth’s structure strong. This less-invasive approach helps to promote fast healing (4) and less postoperative discomfort so you can quickly return to your normal life.
