LAGUNA HILLS, Calif., May 5, 2016-/Globe Newswire/-Sonendo®, Inc., the developer of a disruptive technology for the endodontic marketplace, announced today that the GentleWave® System, has been chosen as a finalist in this year’s Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) for its compelling and innovative design. MDEA are the premier awards for the medical technology industry that honor the highest caliber medical devices on the market today.
Disruptive innovation for the endodontic market is at the center of Sonendo’s product development efforts as evidenced by the GentleWave® System. The GentleWave System leverages minimally-invasive, proprietary technology to clean the entire root canal system. As opposed to conventional endodontic files that only touch 50%-65% of the canal surface, the GentleWave System reaches deep into dentin tubules and other complex anatomies that cannot be accessed with conventional techniques1-3.
Bjarne Bergheim, President and CEO, stated “Our mission is Saving Teeth Through Sound Science® and delivering on our value proposition to provide a better patient outcome through exponential improvements in Clinical Efficacy, and Treatment Efficiency. On behalf of the entire Sonendo organization, we are honored to be a finalist for the 2016 Medical Design Excellence Awards.”
