HOW MUCH DOES A ROOT CANAL COST?
Wondering what the true cost of a root canal is? Insurance coverage is always a top concern, but you’ll also want to factor in time costs and the efficacy of each option. Standard root canal treatments are typically performed in two or more appointments1, and if the procedure fails, more time and money can be spent on retreatment. The GentleWave® Procedure helps to remove biofilm and smear layer,2 which are full of bacteria that standard root canal treatments can’t effectively remove.3 The GentleWave Procedure can also be performed in just one appointment,4 meaning fewer appointments and less time costs incurred. Consider both time and financial costs when choosing a root canal treatment option!
THE GENTLEWAVE® PROCEDURE
The GentleWave Procedure is a minimally invasive5 alternative to standard root canal treatment that cleans the deepest, most complex portions of the root canal system.2,5 Relying on fewer files than standard RCT,2 the GentleWave Procedure uses fluid dynamics and broad spectrum acoustic energy2 to reach into the microscopic spaces2,5 that standard root canal treatment often cannot.6 If you’re interested in a root canal alternative that helps you save your natural tooth, visit www.gentlewave.com.

You have a choice in root canal therapies at a varying range in rates. When weighing the costs of each option, you’ll want to find out what your insurance will cover. But you’ll also want to factor in time costs and the efficacy of each option. Standard root canal treatments are typically performed in two or more appointments.1 So factor in travel, multiple co-pays and time missed from work for each session. And what happens if the treatment fails? Standard root canal treatments can leave behind infected tissue.2 Which can lead to reinfection and require retreatment. That means paying for another procedure and more copays. And more time costs incurred for appointments and recovery. So why not choose the treatment option that cleans those tiny spaces2,5 that standard root canal treatments can miss?6 The GentleWave® Procedure removes biofilm and smear layer,2,3 which are full of bacteria. Standard root canal treatments can’t effectively remove either!3 The GentleWave Procedure can also be performed in just one appointment4 Meaning less appointments and less time costs incurred.
