GentleWave® Unfiltered – Ep. 06
Paradigm shift? Disruptive technology? Sound science? Predictable patient-based clinical outcomes?
Does GentleWave® technology, or more precisely the unique fluid delivery and control system, allow fluids to penetrate complex root canal anatomy like never before providing a new level of clean with fast healing?
We sit down with Dr. Ryan Facer to answer these questions as he shares his experience using GentleWave®. Listen as he parallels and contrasts his approach to patient care before and after becoming an early adopter of the technology. Dr. Facer touches on case selection, best techniques and the learning curves that allowed him to become an even bigger proponent of the cutting-edge technology he now feels he cannot practice without. After this segment, podcast listeners will be better equipped to decide for themselves if GentleWave® is the next revolution in endodontic technology, or just another technological instrument to add to your ever-growing armamentarium of cool endodontic gadgets.
