    I had a root canal using the GentleWave machine, a lot more water pressure than traditional method, and turns out there was a perforation into my sinus and after a few seconds the sodium hypochlorite solution filled my sinus cavity and drained into the back of my throat. I gagged and threw up right there. The Endodontist checked the CBCT again and found the perforation. 1 hours after that I used a saline solution at home and 2 hours after that my left nostril clogged up, another 2 hours after that I tried to blow mt nose to unclog it and a neon Gatorade-like liquid came shooting out, so much that it drenched 2 paper towels. Nostril is clear now but all I can smell is sodium hypochlorite. The Gentle Wave uses a concentration of 3%. Not sure if I need to seek medical attention.
