GentleWave Procedure

Breakthrough Technology

The GentleWave® Procedure is an alternative to standard root canal treatment.


The latest and most innovative technology in the field of endodontics, the GentleWave System is a major breakthrough in the age-old problem of trying to clean out the very complex root canal system within the tooth.

Complex Cleaning

Multi-rooted teeth contain an intricate system of channels for nerves and blood vessels. While traditional methods do a good job cleaning the main channels, they don’t do as well cleaning out these complex channels. GentleWave was designed to specifically address this issue.

Welcome to the new standard in root canal pain relief and tooth preservation.

People have strong perceptions about root canals—that they’re scary, painful, and can disrupt their lives. Thankfully, that’s not the case with the GentleWave Procedure.

At North Scottsdale Endodontics and Implantology, we take pride in offering our patients a new standard in root canal pain relief and tooth preservation.

We do this through our high tech with high touch approach – giving our patients the most advanced endodontic technology available, and combining this with a caring and compassionate attitude.

Through procedures like GentleWave® and regenerative endodontics, we’re able to preserve more of our patient’s teeth than ever!

Patients love the GentleWave procedure, which they describe as more comfortable than standard root canal treatment. This minimally invasive root canal procedure can usually be completed in just one session and is so effective at cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system, there’s less chance of failure over time.

Seeing Is Believing

Effectively cleaning the deepest, most complex portions1,2 of the root canal system requires incredible innovation—and we are proud to offer that technology with the GentleWave® Procedure.

The GentleWave Procedure is 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 spaces1,2 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 invasive1 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.

The Gentle Difference

In most people’s minds, root canals are harsh and disruptive. But at North Scottsdale Endodontics and Implantology, our approach is different, not only complementing your lifestyle but making your quality of life even better than before. It starts with your pain relief consultation and customized treatment plan then carries through to the root canal procedure. Our goal is to restore your tooth and relieve pain…gently. To our patients, it’s life-changing. To us, it’s just how we roll.


Pain-Free Endodontics

When people are told they need a root canal, one of the very first things they think about is pain. Well, that’s just not true at North Scottsdale Endodontics and Implantology. We practice pain-free endodontics. First, we administer the anesthetic and then using advanced procedures like the GentleWave, we provide unparalleled cleaning and prep without the pain usually associated with standard root canal therapy. Most of our patients report they don’t even feel any discomfort afterward! At North Scottsdale Endodontics and Implantology we combine the latest technology with a caring, compassionate, patient-centric attitude in order to give you the best care available anywhere.


Superior System

Standard root canal treatment frequently can’t provide the level of debridement and disinfection as the GentleWave Procedure can, often leaving behind tissue that can lead to reinfection. GentleWave reaches into the microscopic spaces to clean and disinfect the root canal system, leaving less chance for failure.

Fast and Efficient

GentleWave uses sound waves in concert with continuous irrigation to clean and disinfect the entire network of canals in a matter of minutes. The system also allows Dr. McClammy  to conserve more tooth structure, leaving the roots stronger to help resist fracture under heavy chewing forces.
