Many patients fear having to get a root canal procedure. Maybe they’ve had a bad experience in the past, or heard from someone else who had a negative or painful procedure.
Current technology has allowed dentists and endodontists, who are specialists in saving teeth, to conduct root canal therapy that’s not much different from getting a cavity filled.
At Leesburg Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Whitman uses an even more advanced technique developed by leading endodontists to conduct painless and efficient root canal therapy. This second-generation technology is called WaveOne GOLD and offers patients a comfortable procedure that can save their teeth from extraction!
Enhances Patient Safety
WaveOne GOLD provides enhanced patient safety during a root canal procedure. The instrumentation is modern, quiet, and gives your dentist greater flexibility when treating your smile.
With its precise equipment and customizable features, WaveOne GOLD is setting the standard for modern root canal procedures worldwide.
Better Flexibility for Your Unique Smile
WaveOne GOLD comes with four sizes to accommodate different shapes of the canal inside the tooth. This next-generation technology provides this extended size range to accommodate people who have all different types of anatomies.
By customizing the size for your root canal instrumentation, Dr. Whitman is better able to remove the affected tissue in the root canal and create a space to fill and seal the area to prevent further problems.
Shortens Procedure Time
One of the best benefits of WaveOne GOLD is that it shortens the procedure time. While root canals in general don’t take very long, this new technology provides an even faster procedure time with greater efficiency.
A shorter procedure time can help reduce patient anxiety regarding their appointment and increases patient comfort so they can return home for a speedy recovery following their root canal therapy.
Painless, Less Intimidating Procedure
This new root canal technology gives patients a painless procedure that’s all-around less intimidating. The machinery and instrumentation is minimal and quiet, even allowing Dr. Whitman to use a mini iPad as the motor indicator.
The cordless handpiece allows Dr. Whitman to complete the procedure while enhancing patient comfort and reducing the anxiety that can come with what some patients perceive as loud and scary equipment.
