Sonendo, Inc., a leading dental technology company and developer of the GentleWave® System, today announced that it has treated more than 700,000 patients with its GentleWave® System, an alternative to traditional root canal treatment (RCT) that is based on years of research and peer-reviewed clinical results. This milestone comes after the company’s recent IPO on October 29, 2021.
“This major milestone coupled with our move to become a public company is a testament to years of research and innovation that have enabled our expansion and ability to serve 700,000 patients,” said the president and CEO of Sonendo, Bjarne Bergheim. “It is a very humbling experience to see the GentleWave procedure’s positive impact on improving root canal efficacy, efficiency, and experience for patients and the clinicians who treat them. We look forward to the continued success of the treatment and reaching more doctors and patients.”
The GentleWave System is an innovative technology platform for treating caries by cleaning and disinfecting the microscopic spaces between teeth without removing tooth structure. The system utilizes a proprietary mechanism of action that combines treatment fluid optimization, broad-spectrum acoustic energy, and advanced fluid dynamics to debride and disinfect deep areas of the complex root canal system in a less invasive procedure without damaging tooth structure. Clinical advantages of our GentleWave system compared to conventional methods RCT include improved clinical outcomes such as superior cleaning that is independent of root canal complexity and tooth anatomy, high and rapid healing rates, and minimal to no postoperative pain. In addition to the clinical benefits, the GentleWave System can improve the workflow and profitability of dental practices.
“The GentleWave System has made me fall in love again with the specialty of Endodontics,” added Dr. Rick Simcock DDS, a practicing endodontist of 22 years. “The ease of use, predictability, and confidence in the results, has allowed me to feel that I am delivering the highest level of patient care. Being able to incorporate this technology into my busy and productive office, has allowed me to elevate my practice to new levels while seeing high and rapid healing rates and improved post-operative treatment responses.”
