The Golden Era Of Root Canal Instrumentation

New Course

Course Description

In 2011 WaveOne was introduced to Endodontics. Due to its simplicity of use and the lack of procedural errors during cleaning and shaping, it has gained tremendous confidence and acceptance among GP’s as well as Endodontists worldwide. Now, with new metallurgy technology to improve the performance of NiTi instruments, “The Golden Era Of Root Canal Instrumentation” just started with WaveOne Gold. It took 4 years for the WaveOne Gold Team (Dr. Cliff Ruddle, Dr. Julian Webber, Dr. Willy Pertot and Dr. Sergio Kuttler), with support of Dentsply Maillefer, to create a brand new instrument, which will continue changing the way we perform root canal therapy.
