090 ACTEON CUBE PIEZOTOME WITH CHIP VAGONI

Chip Vagnoni from the ACTEON Group joins me today. He wears many hats at the company, he points out in our conversation, but officially he’s Marketing Manager for ACTEON North America. The focus of our chat today will be on the Piezotome Cube device, one of the many different products sold through ACTEON.

As we’ll learn today, Chip is actually a physical therapist by training. From there, he got into sales through physical therapy products, and eventually ended up in product management. In 2007, he shifted into the dental realm when he started working at ACTEON.

And now, onto the Cube! I got to try it out, and was amazed by it and knew I needed to have Chip on the show to talk about it. As we’ll discuss today, the Cube is both soft-tissue friendly as well as powerful enough to cut bone, which was an issue with previous generations of this kind of tool.

Chip will dig into why the Cube is a great choice and a better option than doing things the old-fashioned way. After procedures using the Cube, patients experience about 50% less pain and swelling than after traditional methods of surgery. This less-invasive method lets patients get back to what they want to do faster! He’ll also explore some of the common procedures that the tool is great for, and explain that it isn’t only for extractions.
