On May 4 at the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) Annual Meeting, Dr. David Jaramillo, a professor at UTHealth Houston School of Dentistry, provided an overview of the latest research using the GentleWave System. According to conference organizers, this was the largest AAE meeting on record with over 4,600 attendees.

Jaramillo said he’s been conducting research using the GentleWave system for at least the last seven years. He also disclosed that he receives funding for research from the company. 

“I am a true believer in scientific evidence,” he told the small crowd at the GentleWave System booth. “I like to base what I learn and teach based on evidence,” he added. 

Jaramillo highlighted the following studies and conclusions:

Jaramillo said that one of the important findings he’s seen is that researchers have found almost no remnants of pulp tissue when using the GentleWave System. 

“We will keep working on this research,” he said. “There’s more to come.”
