GENTLEWAVE PROCEDURE - TECHNOLOGY FOR BETTER ROOT CANALS
Effectively cleaning the deepest, most complex portions 1,2 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 spaces 1,2 and remove bacteria, debris and tissue.2 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 invasive 1 protocol 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, 3 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.

Surgical operating Microscope
The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of endodontic microsurgery. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical procedures.
Our success depends on us being able to see the minutest of details — you cannot treat what you cannot see.
FOCUSED FIELD CONE BEAM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (CBCT)
The Focused Field CBCT 3D digital scanner is useful in the diagnosis of orofacial pathology. It can be used to assess general root morphology, the number of roots, and the location of canals. Frequently a tooth has an infection that is not seen on the standard dental X-ray but which can be seen on the CBCT image.
The CBCT is also useful in diagnosing the size and location of internal and external resorptive defects, cracked teeth due to trauma, perforations, and the proximity of roots to anatomical structures (Nerves and Sinus).
Proper diagnosis is critical to determining the cause of symptoms. A CBCT scan can assist in determining if a previously root canal treated tooth should be retreated, surgerized, or extracted without the need for exploratory procedures. Measurements of roots and distances to anatomical structures are easily obtained making treatment more precise.
Digital radiographs are safer, faster, and diagnostically more useful in endodontics than conventional film x-rays. There is up to 80% reduction in radiation, compared to traditional film technology. Patient comfort is greatly increased by utilizing sleek and small, rounded, and beveled sensors. The resulting images are digital, allowing computer enhancement, enlargement, and evaluation, which greatly improve diagnostic and communication capabilities.
