Endodontics

According to the American Board of Endodontists, an endodontist is a dentist specialized in treating diseases and injuries to the dental pulp (nerve), root and surrounding tissues of the teeth. It comes from the Greek words endo meaning “inside” and odont meaning “tooth.”  Surprisingly, less than 3% of dentists go on to become endodontists.  Endodontists receive a "certificate in Endodontics" after two to three years of additional training in an accredited dental program after dental school.   This training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain and performing root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the inside part of the tooth. In many cases, endodontists can save a diseased tooth, which is why many refer themselves as “Specialists in Saving Teeth.”


Introducing GentleWave Procedure

Effectively cleaning the deepest, most complex portions1,2 of the root canal system requires

incredible innovation—and we are proud to offer that technology with the GentleWave®

Procedure.

 

The GentleWave Procedure is a state-of-the-art alternative to standard root canal treatment.

The ultracleaning technology of the GentleWave Procedure is an advanced combination of fluid

dynamics and a broad range of soundwaves that work together to reach into the microscopic

spaces1,2 and remove bacteria, debris and tissue.The GentleWave Procedure is so effective at

cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system, there's less chance of failure over time.3

The GentleWave Procedure uses a minimally invasiveprotocol to access the infected root

canal system, which means it is preserving more of the natural tooth and, in doing so, is helping

to keep the tooth’s structure strong. With the GentleWave Procedure we can also typically

clean and fill the tooth in just one appointment,which may reduce the number of

appointments required.

 

Achieving an exceptional level of clean requires advanced endodontics—and that’s something

we take pride in providing. Contact us today to discover the GentleWave Difference for

yourself.
