What is the GentleWave® System?

The GentleWave® System is an advanced endodontic platform that delivers superior cleaning and disinfection of the root canal system with minimal instrumentation. Offering a less invasive alternative to conventional root canal treatment, the GentleWave® System helps preserve more tooth structure, leading to reduced postoperative pain and faster healing.

This process reaches every corner of your root canal system, even microscopic spaces that are difficult to access with conventional methods. As a result, it removes bacteria and tissue more effectively, promoting better healing outcomes.


What is the GentleWave® Procedure?

Gentlewave MachineThe GentleWave© Procedure is the modern way to treat root canal infections with the effective, high-tech cleaning of the CleanFlow™ Technology to reach the most complex tooth anatomies where bacteria can hide. It thoroughly cleans the root canal system, removing infected tissue and debris while preserving the tooth’s structure. This innovative method employs sound waves and fluid dynamics to achieve a level of cleaning that traditional methods cannot match.


How does the GentleWave® Procedure work?

Through its proprietary cleaning process, the GentleWave® Procedure the inside of the tooth in 3 steps:

  1. Stimulation: A high-pressure stream of fluid is stimulated, creating tiny vapor bubbles that collapse to create multisonic energy.
  2. Activation: Multisonic energy is activated to loosen and dissolve infected tissue and bacteria throughout the entire root canal system.
  3. Disinfection: The disinfection fluids are swirled into a powerful vortex, lifting the infected tissue debris up and out of the tooth in a quick 8-minute cycle, allowing for a pristinely clean root canal system from top to bottom.


Benefits of the GentleWave® Procedure

One of the standout benefits of the GentleWave® Procedure is the reduced postoperative discomfort. Traditional root canals can leave patients with lingering pain and soreness. In contrast, the GentleWave® Procedure ensures a more comfortable recovery.


Preservation of Tooth Structure – Dentin Preservation

Safe Tooth Cleaning

Safety is paramount in any medical procedure. The technique’s minimally invasive approach and thorough cleaning ensures that your tooth is cleaner than other methods and heals faster.

Faster Healing

The bone surrounding your tooth after the GentleWave® Procedure heals faster thus resulting in a higher success rate when compared to other treatments.


What Is CleanFlow™ Technology?

It complements the GentleWave® Procedure, enhancing the process by delivering treatment fluids to every corner of the root canal system.
