3 REASONS NOT TO IGNORE YOUR ROOT CANAL INFECTION
Postponing dental work could be detrimental to your health and put you at risk for further complications—and cost you more time and money in the long run. Here are just a few of the reasons why you should seek prompt treatment for your root canal infection:

• Disregarding your discomfort now can cause more painful problems later.
• Seeking prompt treatment increases the chance to save your tooth.
• The longer you put off dental treatment, the more involved it becomes.

THE GENTLEWAVE® PROCEDURE
The GentleWave® Procedure is a minimally invasive4 alternative to standard root canal treatment. The GentleWave Procedure cleans the deepest, most complex portions of the root canal system.4,5 Relying on fewer files than standard RCT5, the GentleWave alternative uses fluid dynamics and broad spectrum acoustic energy5 to reach into the microscopic spaces4,5 that standard root canal treatment often cannot6.

TRANSCRIPT
Root canal infections can be a pain. Reason 1: Disregarding your discomfort now can cause more painful problems later. If an abscess forms, the infection could spread to the surrounding tissue and bone1 and possibly elsewhere in your body. Reason 2: Seeking prompt treatment increases the chance to save your tooth2—and nothing beats your natural teeth! Reason 3: The longer you put off dental treatment, the more involved it becomes.3 Replacing an extracted tooth with a bridge or implant requires more time in treatment and may result in further procedures to neighboring teeth and supporting tissue.2 Face your root canal infection without fear with the GentleWave® Procedure, the minimally invasive4 fast healing5 alternative to standard root canal treatment that helps to minimize your number of treatment sessions5 and the downtime needed for recovery.
