Dear Dr. Ruddle:

I write in response to a recent publication of a video in which you are shown comparing Fotona’s LIGHTWALKER dental laser to Edge Endo’s EdgePRO dental laser. See Laser Disinfection & Obturation - The Lightwalker vs. EdgePRO Lasers and Q&A (theruddleshow.com).

It appears that your comparison, which provides negative comments about EdgeEPRO, is based on a single biased Fotona study in which EdgePRO’s directions for use were not followed.
Note, the main technique taught for EdgePRO includes inserting the tip mid-root and always in the presence of a fluid, not 2mm from the apex and dry as you stated in your video presentation. In addition, there are numerous studies that demonstrate that the EdgePRO technique and technology is better at cleaning and disinfecting the canal than the LIGHTWALKER technology and technique.

Critically, I feel your identification of EdgePRO as “potentially dangerous” is a false statement. I am aware of no reported “dangerous” events associated with EdgePRO since its inception. Your identification of LIGHTWALKER as “very safe” and EdgePRO as “potentially dangerous” is improper and I request that you immediately revise your video publication to remove reference to the same and refrain from making such assertions in the future.

I recommend that you review all of the available research and demo the advanced disinfection techniques such as EdgePRO, LIGHTWALKER, and GENTLEWAVE to see which works best in your practice.

In order to clear up any misunderstandings, if you would like, we can come to your practice to go over the research and we can perform demos on extracted teeth. I am confident that you will find EdgePRO to be safe and effective.

If you would like to discuss, please call my cell anytime at 505-515-4163

Sincerely,
Charles Goodis
Endodontist, EdgeEndo Owner and CEO
Greetings Chuck,

I am delighted you are watching The Ruddle Show. Yet, setting that aside, your assertion that I made negative comments regarding the EdgePro laser based on a single published paper is utterly false! On the contrary, my comments were evidence-driven and based on what I have learned about lasers over the past 25 years from peer-reviewed published papers, the textbook entitled “Lasers in Endodontics”, and the opinions of international laser users.

The paper you refer to entitled “Comparison of Er:YAG and Er,Cr:YSGG used in dentistry” precisely describes the technical distinctions between these two laser technologies. Just because you don’t like the information within this paper does not mean this paper is biased. FYI, there are a considerable number of published papers, many of which can be reviewed on my website (endoruddle.com), demonstrating the efficacy, efficiency, and safety of the Lightwalker laser.

Regarding the directions for use (DFU): I never said use a laser in a “dry canal.” Either you have never watched this Show segment or the information you were told was wrong. Regarding the depth of tip placement --- EdgeEndo’s own website (edgeendo.com) has a link to EdgePro’s homepage (edgeproendo.com), which features a video clearly showing the placement of the distal tip of the laser optical wand down a remarkably straight canal and to within “one (1) mm” of the working length! The textbook “Lasers in Endodontics” describes the necessity, yet risks, of placing a laser tip to within 2 mm of the working length, but definitely not midroot!

It is “potentially dangerous” to place a laser tip 1 mm or 2 mm short of the working length, especially considering the many variables. These variables include, but are not limited to, the length, diameter, and curvature of any given canal, the terminal diameter and taper of the final preparation, and the variable skill sets among clinicians. Importantly, another “potential danger” includes the root end proximity to the sinus, mental foramen, or neurovascular bundle.

It is well-documented that a firing laser tip positioned close to length can generate frontal pressure which, in turn, can lead to NaOCl accidents. Further, especially in more minimally prepared canals, the laser wand itself will tend to displace the miniscule remaining fluid volume and will certainly contact dentin. This phenomenon has been shown to induce melts, thermal burns, and ledges. The EdgePro technique shown on its website instructs placing a laser tip to within 1 mm of working length, then precisely withdrawing this tip at a rate of 1 mm/sec and doing this 3X/canal. In sharp contrast, the Lightwalker method confines the laser wand within the pulp chamber only, and efficiently cleans and disinfects all prepared canals simultaneously.

Chuck, the good news is, this point/counterpoint discussion will spark a conversation regarding lasers. I guess you heard me say, repeatedly, that both lasers have efficacy, both lasers clean very well, and EdgePro’s price point provides a more affordable disinfection method in the marketplace.

In the spirit of collegiality,
Cliff Ruddle

Hello Dr Ruddle , my name is Bogdan Banica , I’m Romanian dentist working in Liverpool (U.K.) for the last 12 years. My first love in dentistry were dental implants , but after setting my own practice 2 years ago, I slowly drifted towards endo due to the demand.
I’m a show junkie , I have seen all the show twice , maybe I’m a slow learner , but I getting my kicks from annoying my girlfriend when she hears you shouting “ Systems”. Kind regards.
Thank you! Note that your submitted questions are not posted here, but have been forwarded to The Ruddle Show team for direct reply via email -- Please be on the lookout, and thank you for your interest in The Ruddle Show!

The Greatest Honor for a Dentist in their Lifetime
The Clinical God of Endodontics, i.e. Professor Clifford J. Ruddle, giving me the "Ruddle Award for Outstanding Cases"
I was touched by God's grace. The God almighty and the God of endodontics both at the same time. Much appreciated dear esteemed professor for your absolute kindness to me. I can't thank you enough. You literally created the happiest and the most honorable day of my life. Thanks God, people like you still exists in this world!

The Special Guests in TRS are really a special motivators, inspirators for all of the viewers. After listening to the Master's perceptions on the PTU in different episodes, I would strongly recommend everyone to have PTU in the armamentarium list if willing to handle any canal in any tooth in the universe safely, efficiently & predictably. PTU=A system to treat any system /canal/tooth/person in the universe.

This article has all the reasons for the classic recovery as the authors are self centered, favoring company's need & not having any BASICS. The educational society should take some strict actions as nobody has any right to offend a person or philosophy whom/which is right & ethical. Now I understood that the love, care & supporting nature of DEAR SIR may be exponentially expanded due to the 50+ years with PHYLLIS MADAM. Thank YOU & TRS TEAM for a variety & dynamics.

GPM is more discussed by many Speakers,but it is the most commonly neglected or underestimated by many clinicians on day to day basis & face problems in shaping with rotary systems,as the secret of success is following the basics.This is the quote from RUDDLE SIR.

I am a very slow clinician; I had a hard time using Resin Sealers with Cold Lateral Compaction technique. But the reason why I thought a resin sealer would be suitable for CLC is the inherent deficiency of a CLC just because of the fact that it is cold! I thought the relative toxicity of a resin sealer would make up for the lack of hydraulics in a cold obturation technique. But hopefully, I will start using Kerr Pulp Canal Sealer EWT once I implement a warm obturation technique. .

Such a legend! I was blessed to have Dr. Ruddle make me hold an Endomotor for the first time in my life at the APEC conference, Delhi. One of the most humble and inspiring teachers I have ever met, who never seemed to let go of Phyllis's hand at those endo conferences 😅 (they're honestly too adorable together).

I have been following the advanced endo education on his website since my first year of postgraduate study. It helped me understand fundamentals of endo much quicker than any of my batchmates just because of his fabulous teaching which inspired me to implement those tips and tricks into my clinical practice.

I recently heard of ruddle show.com on Howard Farran's podcast and I haven't stopped binge watching through all this new content - not just for the educative content, but because it feels like I know him better through his family and the endo community talks. I have never been so driven! Especially during these tough times.

Can't wait to meet Dr. Ruddle and Phyllis in person at WEC 2020NE, India. Will stay tuned for his online session on retreatment which is scheduled next month.

Keep inspiring, Dr. Ruddle.
Love and respect from India.
