Our Technology

We are proud to be GentleWave providers! The GentleWave Procedure is an innovative alternative to the standard root canal treatment.  This advanced irrigation system allows us to clean the deepest, most complex portions of the root canal system1,2 that standard root canal treatments can miss3.  The Gentle Wave Procedure is so effective at cleaning the root canal system1,2, there is less chance of failure over time4.

With the Gentle Wave Procedure, we can typically clean and fill the tooth in just one session3, helping reduce what is typically a multi-visit procedure to just one.  The minimally invasive1 protocol also helps preserve more of the natural tooth4, helping keep the tooth’s structure as strong as possible.  This less-invasive approach helps to promote fast healing4, so you can quickly return to your normal routine.  You can learn more about it at GentleWave UltraCleaning.

We also carry one of the latest CBCT models on the market.  It allows us to evaluate your tooth and the surrounding areas 3-dimensionally so that we can provide you with a thorough assessment, accurate diagnosis, and the most conservative treatment.  We are also equipped with high magnification microscopes and cameras that we use on every procedure.  These are useful in aiding the doctor to see tiny details inside your tooth as well as document any of their findings.  As you walk through our office, you will also notice that everything is clean, comfortable and thoroughly sterilized.  Your safety and comfort is important to us!
