Experience an Alternative to the Standard Root Canal Treatment
In the past, extraction was the only remedy for diseased teeth. Now, with the advent of root canals, dental professionals are able to save injured and decaying teeth. At Dental Care of Oak Park, we offer a less invasive alternative to the traditional method through the GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure.
During a standard root canal procedure, a small drill and a series of small files are used to clear away the infected tissue and diseased pulp in order to shape the inside of the tooth. Although the standard treatment is relatively thorough, bacteria is sometimes left behind.
To remedy this issue, we utilize the GentleWave® Procedure. This minimally invasive approach delivers a higher standard of sanitation by effectively removing the bacteria that live throughout your root canal system.
How Does the GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure Work?
To administer the GentleWave® System, we use a sterilized instrument to distribute a whirlwind of fluids through the root canal. As the fluids move throughout the canal, broad-spectrum acoustic energy aids in removing the infection-causing tissue, pulp, and debris. Unlike standard methods, the GentleWave® Ultracleaning Procedure can reach every part of the tooth, including places that are often hard to reach. Plus, the entire process can be completed in just one session.
For more than 25 years, we’ve sought out the latest in dental technological advancements in procedures, products, and techniques to help our patients live more comfortably, including the GentleWave® Procedure.
