We use the latest Advanced Technology.
Effectively cleaning the deepest, most complex portions (1,2) of the root canal system requires
incredible innovation—and we are proud to offer that technology with the GentleWave®
The GentleWave Procedure is a state-of-the-art alternative to standard root canal treatment.
The ultracleaning technology of the GentleWave Procedure is an advanced combination of fluid
dynamics and a broad range of sound waves that work together to reach into the microscopic
spaces (1,2) and remove bacteria, debris and tissue. (2) The GentleWave Procedure is so effective at
cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system, there’s less chance of failure over time.(3)
The GentleWave Procedure uses a minimally invasive (1) protocol to access the infected root
canal system, which means it is preserving more of the natural tooth and, in doing so, is helping
to keep the tooth’s structure strong. With the GentleWave Procedure we can also typically
clean and fill the tooth in just one appointment,(3) which may reduce the number of
Achieving an exceptional level of clean requires advanced endodontics—and that’s something
we take pride in providing. Contact us today to discover the GentleWave Difference for

Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art canal location device. This device incorporates a 3D image with tracing devices to assist in locating even the tiniest, most difficult to treat “calcified” canals. Calcification is a process that takes place over time as the root canal structures attempt to stave off disease and the aging process. This phenomenon results in narrowed canals that are invisible to the naked eye and even hidden under microscopic magnification. The X-Nav System is a revolutionary approach to solving this often encountered challenge in root canal therapy. The machine can also be used in surgery to target the diseased area without disruption of delicate, vital structures.
Cone Beam CT
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of endodontic disease. This allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular dental x-rays). With the addition of cone-beam CT technology to our office, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality, patient care.
Siesta Key Root Canal Specialists carefully chooses which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Siesta Key Root Canal Specialists utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontic treatment. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical procedures.
Our success depends on us being able to see the minutest of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see.
