The GentleWave root canal procedure uses sound waves and fluids to more effectively clean the canals of a tooth. This system can clean out bacteria, infected debris, and inflamed pulp that other systems cannot reach.
To get deeper cleaning and disinfection of the innermost portions of the root canals, the GentleWave system creates a vortex of treatment fluids that swirl around the inside of the tooth. These quickly moving fluids can debride and disinfect areas that traditional files cannot reach, such as extra canals or very tiny openings.
Because of the unique cleaning ability of the Gentlewave, we do not have to remove as much tooth structure, leaving your tooth stronger.
Patients report less discomfort after the procedure and recover more rapidly.
Even though this technology is new, Dr. Crepps has years of experience with the Gentlewave and is an authorized provider.
