We are extremely pleased to announce the introduction of an exciting innovation in endodontics to our practice: The GentleWave® System by Sonendo.®
The GentleWave Procedure is a minimally invasive (1) alternative to standard root canal treatment that is helping us provide a higher level of clean to our patients. Using proprietary closed-loop Multisonic Ultracleaning® technology, the GentleWave Procedure couples advanced fluid dynamics with broad spectrum acoustic energy to remove bacteria, debris, tissue, smear layer (2) and even biofilm (3) from the deepest, most complex portions of the root canal system. (1,2) The GentleWave Procedure is so effective at cleaning and disinfecting intricate anatomies, there’s less chance of failure over time. (4)
You only need to review the radiographic evidence to see the difference between standard root canal treatment and the GentleWave Procedure. The GentleWave Procedure reaches into the microscopic spaces (1,2) that standard root canal treatments often cannot. (5) The access opening is also minimized, helping to preserve more dentin structure (3) and the integrity of the tooth. And with the GentleWave Procedure, the tooth can typically be cleaned and filled in just one session, (4) requiring patients to take less time away from work and other responsibilities.
Offering your patients these state-of-the-art services and improved outcomes is easy—I would be happy to speak with you or consult with your patients about the advantages of the GentleWave Procedure. Please feel free to contact me at my office at 530-243-2919 with any questions or to schedule a consultation.
