Root canals tend to strike fear in people. Just thinking of the words are enough to terrify most of us.

Root canal symptoms can be a pain. Choosing your root canal option doesn’t have to be.

According to the Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care, 2020, many people actually avoid root canals and further deteriorate the state of their teeth purely because they have misconceptions about the pain and treatment time associated with the procedure. However, root canal treatment can be extremely important – in fact, dental research shows that losing teeth can result in psychological distress due to lowered self-confidence, especially if the lost teeth are highly visible.

To combat these fears and misconceptions, the GentleWave Procedure is a less invasive and less painful alternative to conventional root canal treatment. It is redefining standard treatment with a minimally invasive process that preserves tooth structure and promotes early healing.

Focused on saving teeth, Sonendo is a commercial-stage medical technology company and the developer of the GentleWave System.

According to a recent clinical trial, 99.5% of patients experienced minimal to no pain during the GentleWave Procedure with the addition of CleanFlow Technology. More than one million patients have received the GentleWave Procedure to date.

Sonendo is leveraging its innovative technology to transform root canal therapy, making it simpler for clinicians and less invasive and almost pain-free for patients. For more information on the GentleWave System visit: GENTLEWAVE.COM
