TO-THE-POINT LECTURE SERIES: Scientific and Clinical Evidence for an MIE/RDE Approach Using the GentleWave® Procedure

Gary Carr, DDS & John Khademi, DDS, MS
Wednesday, April 1 | 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM | Exhibit Hall

Traditional endodontics is generally regarded as a chemo-mechanical procedure with long and hotly debated intervention parameters generally targeted at optimal canal debridement and disinfection. The GentleWave Procedure is an optimized chemo-acoustic and fluid-dynamic procedure that is said to not rely on the role of traditional instrumentation objectives such as apical size and radicular shape for canal debridement and disinfection and is purportedly bringing these legacy concepts into sharp question. This presentation will introduce some preliminary research that demonstrates what the GentleWave Procedure can accomplish in a clinical environment, both microscopically and from a clinical outcomes perspective.

TO-THE-POINT LECTURE SERIES: Exploring Long-Term Results and Reviewing the Science Behind the GentleWave® Procedure

Eric Herbranson, DDS, MS & Marcus Palermo, DDS
Thursday, April 2 | 2:00 – 3:00 PM | Exhibit Hall

Delivering efficient treatment for patients brings value to our practices, to our referrers and our patients. But ahead of efficiency comes efficacy. How do we both provide the best outcome and deliver an efficient single-visit procedure for the patient? Dr. Herbranson will discuss the mechanism of action of the GentleWave Procedure, describing how maximum debridement and disinfection plus maximum dentin preservation in a single visit has been made possible. Dr. Palermo will share his journey of being a nearly all multi-visit practice to nearly all single-visit practice, showing a multitude of cases with 3-, 6- and 12-month—and longer—follow-up with CBCT images.
