Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth. During a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed. A successful root canal will relieve your pain and make your tooth healthy again.
The GentleWave® Procedure uses advanced fluid dynamics to create a vortex that travels through the root canal system. Unlike standard root canal treatments, the GentleWave® System is able to reach throughout the tooth, even in the microscopic places where bacteria can hide. Clinical research demonstrates:
Dr. Axx and Dr. Clatanoff are certified in oral conscious sedation and follow the DOCS Eduction Protocols. Using customized sedation endodontics tailored to each patient, we can safely alleviate dental anxiety and provide treatment that is stress and memory free. We also coordinate with a dental anesthesiologist to provide IV sedation for those patients requiring a deeper level of sedation.
Absolutely the best! Excellent, immaculate and very comfortable office with a friendly and professional staff. I would never think of going anywhere else.
I was very impressed with the professionalism and thoroughness of Dr Axx and his staff. Dr Axx explained the procedures carefully so I could evaluate the benefits (and) cost of each. The procedure was performed painless and meticulously. Dr Axx followed up to ensure I was recovering well. Thank you all.
5 Stars!! I was very impressed with the entire team. Dr Clatanoff and every assistant was super friendly, very professional and treated me like I was family. They went above and beyond to deliver excellent service. They even stayed later than normal for my root canal to relieve the pain I was having. I recommend this practice MOST highly!! I rarely leave a review—but this practice deserves the highest accolades!
Fantastic office! Very clean and modern. The doctors are great and the staff is so friendly. Best of all, my procedure was absolutely painless!!!
