A major part of root canal therapy is removing the infected pulp from the interior or your tooth. At Sunset Endodontics, we are dedicated to creating the best possible experience for each of our patients. Our endodontists, Dr. Dougherty and Dr. Biggs, DDS, and our team use the GentleWave® system in Henderson, Nevada, to clean and reshape the interior of your tooth to maintain its structure, appearance, and your dental health.
Unlike traditional root canals, the GentleWave system does not use files to remove the pulp, but instead combines a fluid and acoustics to clean and sterilize the pulp chamber and reshape the interior of the tooth. It is a more effective way to clean the chamber and prepare it for the replacement for the pulp, and it is also more comfortable and allows Dr. Dougherty or Dr. Biggs to completely prepare your tooth in a single visit to our office. Because the system uses fluid and not a file, it can reach areas within the tooth chamber that are too small for files, including microscopic areas. The system allows Dr. Biggs or Dr. Dougherty to remove only the necessary amount of material to reshape the tooth chamber, which helps the roots to remain strong and intact.
