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, 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.

We use a surgical operating microscope during treatment to allow for enhanced vision, through illumination and magnification, of the minutest details inside your tooth, such as complex root canal anatomy, extra or calcified canals, and fracture lines.  This technology dramatically improves the diagnosis, treatment and outcome of your root canal.   





Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)


A cone beam CT (computed tomography) scan provides for highly accurate, three-dimensional radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of endodontic disease. This technology allows for three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with regular dental x-rays. We are able to view microscopic sections of teeth and surrounding structures in all three planes: top to bottom, side to side, and front to back.


Digital X-rays


By using computerized digital x-rays, we can reduce the radiation to our patients by nearly 90%. Because they’re digital, these x-rays can abe enhanced by the computer for improved visualization. The ability to see subtleties using digital radiography is crucial to diagnosis, collaboration, and patient communication. 



TDO Software

Our office uses TDO, the universally acknowledged gold standard in endodontic electronic records. Designed by a leading endodontist, in conjunction with a community of endodontists dedicated to the foundational principle that the patient's care always comes first, the software streamlines and simplifies patient registration, referral communication, medical history review, and clinical and imaging documentation. It operates off the Checklist Manifesto common in top hospitals and the airline industry to minimize errors and improve performance and patient outcomes.

Much more than software, we are part of a community of top clinicians dedicated to mentoring each other, clinical excellence, self-improvement, and continual critical self-appraisal so needed for professional improvement and development. As a user of the software, and as a member of the TDO community, our focus is on providing the highest level of care within the endodontic specialty.
