In this Dental Clinical Companion podcast episode, Dr. Tom McClammy comprehensively discusses the GentleWave® Procedure in his clinical practice, dispels myths, and answers many commonly asked questions.
Dr. Tom McClammy discusses the changing landscape of endodontics; how technology is allowing for better cleaning and disinfection and preservation of natural root canal anatomy. “The anatomy has not changed but our ability to address the anatomy is now far superior.” Dr. McClammy joined the GentleWave® Community of users nearly 3 years ago. He will discuss his journey of implementing this technology into his practice and his experience thus far. An endodontist and eternal educator, Dr. McClammy will share his perspectives on how far we have come and his excitement for the continued pursuit of excellence.
In the Driving Better Practice Economics with the GentleWave® System white paper, Dr. Marcus Palermo explains how to deliver on the promise of better results by offering patients a true alternative to standard Root Canal Treatment.
"The GentleWave System’s mechanism of action, in which optimized cleaning fluids thoroughly clean from the crown to the apex in just one appointment9, means we are able to offer patients an effective alternative to standard root canal treatments, which already have a negative connotation in the mind of many patients. That is especially important when referring practices offer patients a range of choices for their endodontic work."
