Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal

If your dentist has recommended root canal treatment for a problem tooth then rest-assure that you can receive pain-free, effective endodontic treatment using the GentleWave technology at Midtownendo. A traditional root canal involves filing inside of your tooth, which is a process that leaves bacteria behind as it can miss up to 60% of the canal walls. Many of the microscopic spaces where bacteria can hide remain untouched during this procedure, and that can mean you’ll end up requiring another root canal procedure later on.

We are the first in New York City to introduce the GentleWave procedure, the very latest and most innovative technology in the field of Endodontics to replace a standard root canal treatment. We are excited to be the first fully certified in Manhattan to provide our patients with this major advancement that helps us achieve our goal to clean out the very complex root canal system within the tooth. The root canal system in multi-rooted teeth, especially molars, consist of intricate channels for the nerves and blood vessels.

The GentleWave system delivers a broad range of sound waves with in the complex anatomy found with the tooth in concert with continuous irrigation. And, in a matter of minutes, results in complete cleaning and disinfecting of the entire network of canals. The incredible effectiveness of this system also allows us to conserve more tooth structure than ever before.

Multisonic Ultracleaning™ Technology: Advancing the Standard of Clean for Your Teeth

Root canal procedures can save infected or damaged teeth by removing the pulp and bacteria from inside the tooth. Traditionally, this process has relied on metal files that physically scrape away decay and diseased tissue from within an infected root canal. But these files cannot easily reach everywhere within the canal, leaving as much as 60% of the canal space untouched. That means that bacteria is left to multiply inside your tooth and over time, you could find yourself right back in your endodontist’s chair.
The GentleWave System represents an innovative new way of cleaning your root canal. With breakthrough Multisonic Ultracleaning TM technology, a powerful vortex of treatment fluids, plus multiple waves of broad spectrum acoustic energy enable treatment fluids to reach every surface. Tissue, debris and bacteria are virtually eliminated, even in the microscopic tubules that traditional methods cannot reach providing unprecedented disinfection and a clean that has never been achieved before.

Once you compare patented Multisonic Ultracleaning technology to traditional root canal methods, you’ll see what sets GentleWave treatments apart.
