I have been fitting CIC's for 4 years, both the Philips XP and a prototype
developed here in Roanoke by Gary Ward (now deceased) at Emtech Labs. Their
life is slightly less than that of a canal aid, and I so tell my patients.
If they choose a CIC I support them and tell them what they can expect.
Questioning other professionals' motives, particularly with a snide remark
at their ethics is a low blow, and I will not let it pass.
