The system uses broad-spectrum acoustic energy and advanced fluid dynamics to deliver advanced disinfection to penetrate complex anatomies, resulting in better cleaning and improved healing times.
Laguna Hills, California-based Sonendo’s GentleWave procedure is used in root canal treatment for a minimally invasive process to preserve tooth structure and promotes early healing. In a recent clinical trial, 99.5% of patients experienced minimal to no pain in the GentleWave procedure with the addition of its CleanFlow technology, the company said in a news release.
“The GentleWave G4 System highlights our commitment to world-class innovation. Our new console has a modern look, is highly effective, and built for the future of endodontics by being software upgradeable and ready to accept future technical innovations from Sonendo. It is a direct result of listening to our practitioners’ needs and addressing them through product innovation,” President and CEO Bjarne Bergheim said. “With a mission to save teeth and improve lives, we are proud to introduce this next-generation GentleWave System to the market – a testament to our commitment to elevating patient care and practice workflow. We are truly transforming how root canals are performed.”
GentleWave G4 has an intuitive, user-friendly interface that provides step-by-step guidance for practitioners and auditory cues that improve procedure awareness and reduces the need to look away from a patient during treatment. It also has battery backup and high-capacity fluid reservoirs to decrease downtime between treatments and allow up to six procedures before refilling fluids.
“Since adopting the GentleWave System, I have seen heightened productivity within my practice and more successful root canal procedures,” said Dr. Rick Simcock, an endodontist based in Bellingham, Washington. “I am confident that this next iteration will bring even more efficiencies, as the larger fluid capacity and new battery backup significantly cut down on system preparation time between procedures. The GentleWave G4 System is further evidence of Sonendo’s investment in my practice and the broader specialty.”
