GentleWave® Multisonic Procedure

A Better Root Canal

Many people wince at the thought of having root canal therapy. But now, we are excited to share with you a new option for root canal treatment. With GentleWave® Multisonic Procedure patented technology, Dr. Engel can now give his patients a root canal procedure that can effectively clean even the most challenging anatomy predictably while preserving critical tooth structure.

Less Chance of Reinfection

Because the canal systems of teeth are so complex, it can be difficult to reach all areas through traditional root canal treatment, which utilizes a series of files to remove bacteria and diseased material. By contrast, the GentleWave® Procedure uses multisonic energy and specialized fluid treatment to reach every corner and crevice of the tooth for a more complete cleaning and less chance of reinfection.

How does the GentleWave® Procedure work?

The GentleWave® Procedure combines acoustic energy and optimized fluids to reach every part of the canal system, including fine branches, lateral canals and connecting isthmuses that can be difficult to thoroughly clean using only traditional endodontic files. With traditional root canal treatment, biofilms can sometimes remain in these areas, which may prevent complete healing. However, with the GentleWave® Procedure, the biofilm can be removed in a single session to improve your chances for complete healing.

What is Multisonic Ultracleaning™?

Traditional ultrasound wavelength technology relies on a single wavelength. With Multisonic Ultracleaning™, however, multiple sound frequencies are used at the same time and combined with special fluid treatment to deliver the deepest clean.

As a trained GentleWave® provider, Dr. Engel can evaluate your tooth to see if the GentleWave® Multisonic Procedure is right for you.
