Gentle Wave: A New Kind of Dental Treatment

Gentle Wave: A New Kind of Dental Treatment

Traditional root canal procedures are a thing of the past with the Gentle Wave procedure. An alternative to more invasive techniques, Gentle Wave is a method that was created with patient comfort at the forefront.

Claremont Dental Institute now offers Gentle Wave to its patients for clean and long-lasting results. Many patients believe root canals are invasive and painful, but Gentle Wave dispels these myths.

Root Canal Myths

Some of the myths that are still attached to root canal procedures persist today. Patients think that the procedure may be:

  • Painful
  • Uncomfortable
  • Frightening

Gentle Wave can change the way you think about root canals because it is a quick and comfortable way to disinfect teeth and can keep them healthy for a long time.

Symptoms of Root Canal Infection

Prior to the Gentle Wave Ultracleaning procedure, a professional at Claremont Dental Institute will assess your tooth and gum health. Some symptoms of a root canal infection may include gum swelling, severe tooth pain, tooth discoloration, and tooth sensitivity to heat and cold. Infected pulp, made of nerves and blood vessels and found inside the tooth, must be removed to thoroughly clean and disinfect the tooth. Cleaning and disinfecting the tooth prevents further infection and tooth loss.

The Gentle Wave Ultracleaning Procedure

Using advanced fluid dynamics, water, and soundwaves, a sterilized utensil is used to remove infected tissue inside the tooth. A minimally invasive procedure, Gentle Wave cleans throughout the root canal system and microscopic system to save natural teeth. Tooth structure is kept intact to ensure optimal oral health and stability post-treatment. This procedure also thoroughly disinfects teeth and keeps bacteria at bay.

Gentle Wave can be completed in just one visit to our office in Claremont, CA. You can learn more about the procedure and patient’s experiences with Gentle Wave here on our root canal page.
