NOT FOR CE CREDIT: The exciting development of WaveOne Gold in 2015 has introduced many colleagues into a new world of mechanical shaping techniques and with its asymmetrical reciprocating movement and unique design is valued for its simplicity and safety. Post manufacturing heat treatment gives the file not only its gold appearance but also improves flexibility and more importantly the fatigue life of the instrument which reduces the incidence and fear of breakage. With little “ shape memory", WaveOne Gold has the ability to treat some of the more complex challenges seen in everyday endodontic practice such as those with long, curved and narrow canals. These cases are now within the comfort zone of many colleagues. Co developer Julian Webber will review those design features of WaveOne gold that have enhanced its performance and offer clinical hints and solutions to achieve exceptional endodontic outcomes. It has never been easier to shape canals.
