No one wants to be told they need a root canal. But root canal treatment (also called root canal therapy) has come a long way. Advancements in dental and endodontic technology combined with new and improved methodologies enable us to perform pain-free root canal treatment in less time and with superior results.

The GentleWave procedure is a state-of-the-art, highly effective, and minimally invasive alternative to traditional root canal therapy. With the GentleWave system, we can more effectively clean the root canal system delivering faster healing for patients with minimized post-operative discomfort.

What is the GentleWave procedure?

The GentleWave system uses a sophisticated combination of fluid dynamics, broad-range sound waves, and accelerated chemistry to effectively and efficiently clean and disinfect the root canal system. This minimally invasive endodontic technology is able to reach into microscopic spaces, removing bacteria, debris, and tissue while disinfecting the system with ease.

Dr. King and our dedicated team at Endodontic Excellence of Atlanta use the GentleWave system to:

  • Provide a more gentle and comfortable patient experience
  • Achieve superior cleaning and disinfection
  • Preserve more of the natural tooth structure
  • Promote faster healing
  • Reduce the risk of required retreatment down the road

Benefits of the GentleWave approach

Less invasive

Traditional root canal procedures often require significant enlargement of the canal system in order to properly disinfect the root canal system. The GentleWave approach eliminates the need to enlarge the canal system for optimal disinfection. The GentleWave System mechanism of action uses a combination of advanced fluid dynamics and broad-spectrum acoustic energy to clean the complex anatomy of the root canal system.

Here’s how Sonendo describes this revolutionary system — ”GentleWave Procedure fluids undergo a proprietary degassing process that ensures an unobstructed flow into the tooth. As fluids enter the procedure instrument, fluid dynamics and acoustic energy are induced to create a vortical flow that propels fluids throughout the root canal system to provide tissue debridement, dissolution and disinfection.” Learn more.

Better cleaning

With the GentleWave system’s dynamic fluid application technology, you’ll receive a much more effective and thorough cleaning. This disinfection process is superior to traditional methods and will significantly reduce your risk of needing additional procedures in the future.

Fewer appointments

With GentleWave, treatment is often complete after just one visit.

Higher success rate

As GentleWave provides more effective disinfection it in turn leads to a higher rate of success when compared to traditional root canals.
