For many people, the words “root canal” conjure up visions of a long and uncomfortable dental visit. You have no doubt heard the jokes and comparisons made about root canals. But at Lake Highlands Dental, our dentists and team use the Wave system in Dallas, Texas, to decrease the length of your visit and increase the comfort and effectiveness of your treatment.
Unlike traditional root canals, the Wave system combines fluid and ultrasonic technology to cleanse the entire root chamber, removing all of the infected pulp and bacteria that endanger your tooth and your smile. Some tooth roots can twist and turn, which can make reaching every area of your pulp chamber difficult. The Wave system eliminates this problem. It is minimally invasive, and since no tools or instruments are involved, the structure of your tooth is kept intact. It also decreases the chances of needing to return to our office for a root canal retreatment. But perhaps the most appealing aspect of this treatment is that is much more comfortable than the root canals you may remember or have heard about!
If you have a toothache or tooth sensitivity, you may be dealing with the early stages of a tooth infection. Instead of putting your visit off, call Lake Highlands Dental at 214-613-1279. Dr. Lyndel Stripling, Dr. Sajjad Ashnagar, Dr. Rachael O'Brien or Dr. Dan Stipe can use the Wave endodontic system to restore the health of your smile.
