Read what helps the GentleWave Procedure clean differently.

GentleWave Procedure Other root canal options
Requires tooth access to prepare for treatment

Requires a small hole to be drilled into the tooth’s biting surface to gain access to the tooth’s root canal system inside.

Superior cleaning of complex anatomy

Combines a proprietary mix of multisonic energy and vortical flow to clean the smallest and most remote parts of the root canal system, leading to a very clean root canal system and less chance of needing retreatment3.

Designed for patient comfort

Designed to be a minimally invasive treatment that offers improved outcomes2 and promotes pain-free fast healing2. 96.6% of patients report mild to no pain after the procedure4.

One-visit procedure

Over 92% of patients can finish treatment in just one session, giving time back into busy schedules2.

Saves natural tooth structure

Promotes dentin preservation of the tooth2, which helps to maintain the tooth’s integrity and keeps the natural tooth stronger.

Revolutionary approach to safety

Because the technology creates negative pressure at the root end5, the fluids inside the tooth are contained to the root canal system, preventing fluids from escaping into and irritating the tissue surrounding the tooth.

Requires the root canal system to be filled

Requires that after cleaning, the treated root canal system is filled to prevent reinfection.
