Root Canal Treatment
Having a root canal performed by an experienced endodontist could mean the difference between losing your tooth and keeping it. Chronic tooth pain, sensitivity to heat or cold, swelling around one particular tooth or a pimple/ bump on gums or below the tooth could indicate an infection or condition that requires root canal treatment. If the damaged or diseased tooth is left untreated it can lead to an abscess that can spread to the jaw and surrounding teeth, tooth loss or more severe problems.
How Does a Root Canal Work?
The pulp inside of the tooth contains blood vessels and nerves that help grow the roots. A fully developed tooth can survive without pulp because they are nourished by surrounding tissues. A root canal removes the inflamed or infected pulp and the inside of the tooth, restoring and saving the natural tooth and preventing further decay.
Why Get a Root Canal?
When given a choice between tooth extraction and root canal treatment, always opt for a root canal. No denture, bridge or implant will look, feel and function as well as a natural tooth. Root canal treatment is virtually painless with GentelWave technology and leaves you with less discomfort during recovery than if you have your natural tooth extracted.
GentleWave® cleans where others can’t
Preserve your natural tooth with the GentleWave® alternative. The GentleWave® System uses advanced fluid dynamics to create a vortex of procedure fluids that travel through your root canal system. Along the way, broad spectrum acoustic energy helps remove the tissue and debris that cause infection. Unlike standard root canal treatments, the GentleWave Ultra-Cleaning Procedure is able to reach all throughout your tooth—even in the microscopic places where bacteria can hide.
We are very proud to be able to offer this level of care to our patients. Greater Endodontics is trained in the use of the GentleWave® System and will gladly answer any questions you may have about this exciting new technology.
