The GentleWave Procedure

The GentleWave Procedure is an additional irrigation technique that can aid in the debridement of root canal spaces. This procedure was developed in 2016 and Dr. Thondapu has been providing treatment with GentleWave since 2018. 

Case selection for GentleWave is very important. The use of this technology is dependent on several factors including but not limited to:

  • an adequate amount of tooth structure
  • the ability to achieve an excellent seal
  • the ability to visualize, in 3 dimensions, the position of various anatomical structures
  • sufficient development of the root apices 


"Cleaning the highly complex anatomy of the root canal system can present a real challenge in root canal therapy. Our practice is meeting this challenge like never before with the state-of-the-art endodontic technology of the GentleWave® Procedure. The GentleWave Procedure is an innovative alternative to standard root canal treatment that uses a powerful combination of procedure fluids and energy to clean the deepest, most complex portions of the root canal system—including the microscopic spaces that standard root canal treatments can miss. The GentleWave Procedure is so effective at cleaning the root canal system there’s less chance of failure over time."

"The minimally invasive protocol also helps preserve more of the natural tooth, helping keep the tooth’s structure strong. And, this less-invasive approach helps to promote fast healing, so you can quickly return to your normal routine. Our practice takes pride in offering our patients the most innovative and effective treatment options."
