Experiencing painful, tender, or swollen, teeth? Are there abscess around the tooth? Is the tooth loose, discolored, or even cracked? When people have these problems with their teeth, they require a trip to the endodontist for a root canal evaluation.
But can getting a root canal procedure be painless? Absolutely! In fact, when endodontists use advanced equipment and technologies, like the groundbreaking GentleWave® technology in New York, NY, root canal treatment becomes a comfortable, efficient way to save a patient’s teeth and improve their smile.
What makes being treated with GentleWave® so different from other root canal protocols? GentleWave is designed to take a unique approach to root canals for beneficial and lasting treatment outcomes.
GentleWave Versus Traditional Root Canal Treatments
In a conventional root canal procedure process, the endodontist focuses on removing the infected or inflamed tissue by using files. Afterward, the inside of the tooth is cleaned with sonic and ultrasonic tools. These tools work well. However, adding GentleWave technology to the experience adds an extra level of security, protection, and sanitization.
For example, the GentleWave endodontic technology cleans all the lateral canals out. Normally, those canals cannot be cleaned using standardized equipment because root canals have many branches. Some of those branches are hard to reach, making them the perfect spot for bacteria to hide and cause reinfection in in the future.
Being able to get those canals clean enables the endodontist to preserve more of the patients tooth structure. That means the patients natural tooth anatomy can stay intact.
How Does GentleWave Technology In New York, NY Work?
Of course, some people may be wondering why the GentleWave technology is noted for being a painless method used for root canal treatments. The reason is GentleWaves innovative use of fluids and acoustic energy to clean and disinfect the complex internal anatomies of a tooth and its root. Rather than requiring manual manipulation of instruments, GentleWave is a minimally invasive way for the endodontist to care for the patient during their necessary treatment.
When paired with the appropriate sedation dentistry method, a root canal treatment performed with GentleWave can provide patients with more precise, predictable, and comfortable results. It can also be used for the retreatment of prior root canals that have become infected again and requires more attention.
