Root Canal Surgery –Bellevue WA
Endodontic (root canal) surgery can be used to identify and address fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but can lead to pain and infection. Damaged root surfaces or surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection. For more information on root canal surgery at our Bellevue, WA endodontic office, please visit our root canal surgery page.
The GentleWave Procedure is an alternative to standard root canal treatment. This root canal procedure uses fluid dynamics and broad spectrum acoustic energy to clean and disinfect the root canal system,1 which means fewer files may be used as a result.
Patients love the GentleWave alternative, which is described as more comfortable than standard root canal treatment.2 This minimally invasive3 root canal procedure can usually be completed in just one session2 and is so effective at cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system, there’s less chance of failure over time.2
