How The Gentle Wave Hand Piece Works

How The Gentle Wave Hand Piece Works


The GentleWave System’s technology uses broad spectrum acoustic energy and advanced fluid dynamics to flush away debris and tissue from your entire root canal system. It dissolves organic tissue up to 7x faster than conventional devices even cleaning microscopic spaces that can’t be reached by standard root canal treatment.

Instead of relying on on multiple instruments to clean the root canal system, following minimal insturmentation the GentleWave System uses a sterilized single-use procedure instrument to deliver broad spectrum acoustic energy and a powerful vortex of optimized procedure fluids throughout the canals. Many patients- especially those who have previously undergone a standard root canal treatment-describe the GentleWave Procedure as comfortable.

Standard root canal treatment often involves multiple visits to your dentist or endodontist. But the GentleWave Procedure can usually be completed in just one visit. It’s ideal for patients with busy schedules.

Some patients who need a root canal treatment opt instead for having their tooth removed and replaced with a dental implant. But dental implants require extracting the tooth, followed by multiple surgeries to insert a metal post in the jaw and affix a porcelain crown to the post. These surgeries often can take three or more visits to complete. The GentleWave Procedure is designed to help you save your natural tooth, and is usually completed in just one visit.
