A privately-held medical device company focused on the dental space with its device “GentleWave” that changed the treatment of root canals for patients, physicians, and their practices

With headquarters in Laguna Hills, California, Sonendo is a medical device company focused on the dental market, with its initial focus on improving the traditional root canal procedure. The company’s first marketed product is the GentleWave system, a 510(k)-cleared device indicated for the preparation, cleaning, and irrigation of teeth during root canal therapy. Through a proprietary combination of technologies for de-gassing liquids and creating high-speed fluid dynamics within the root canal, the GentleWave system is able to dissolve tissue faster and clean the root canal more thoroughly than conventional treatments, leading to fewer root canal failures, improved efficiency for physicians, and more improved outcomes for patients.
