Dynamic Guidance and Lasers: Navigating Endodontics into the Future? – Ep. 10
Imagine practicing in a clinical setting where the bane of an endodontist’s existence — access designs cut into calcified teeth — are met with precision and accuracy on a consistent basis, thanks to a target-like graphic of the drilling path for MIE (minimally invasive endodontics) access displayed on a monitor – all in real time! Sounds like an excerpt of out a sci-fi movie!
Endodontic technological pioneer Dr. Charles Maupin welcomes us into the disruptive world of dynamic guidance, projecting the clinical implications and new developments from X-Nav Technologies. We discuss static vs. dynamic guides, unconventional access designs, along with heat-treated files and how placing implants helped him and others truly bring dynamic technology to endodontics.
Our talk seamlessly glides into lasers and their use within endodontics, including Dr. Maupin’s perspective of lasers as an aid in disinfection.
This conversation invites the listener into a learning space where the present is the future.
