    SonendoŽ Announces Next Generation GentleWaveŽ G4 System

    Sonendo, Inc. (NYSE: SONX), a leading dental technology company and developer of the GentleWave® System, today announced the release of the GentleWave G4 System, the next generation of its innovative technology platform designed to treat tooth decay. With Sonendo's patented technology at its core, the GentleWave G4 System is designed for an optimized doctor and patient experience with a refined, simplified workflow – all while delivering the enhanced level of clean that is only available with GentleWave Technology. Broad-spectrum acoustic energy and advanced fluid dynamics deliver advanced disinfection to penetrate even the most complex anatomies, resulting in a predictable and superior level of cleaning and improved healing time.

    Since its inception, the GentleWave Procedure has redefined the standard of root canal treatment with a minimally invasive process that preserves tooth structure and promotes early healing. 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.

    Closely following the launch of CleanFlow Technology in April of this year, the GentleWave G4 System marks the latest innovation from Sonendo and is a testament to the Company's continued investment in dental technology and the specialty of endodontics.

    "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," said Bjarne Bergheim, President and CEO of Sonendo. "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."

    The GentleWave G4 System was created with future software adaptations and evolving features in mind. An intuitive, user-friendly interface provides step-by-step guidance for practitioners and auditory cues that improve procedure awareness reducing the need to look away from the patient during treatment. Battery backup and high-capacity fluid reservoirs decrease downtime between treatments and allow up to six procedures before refilling fluids. The system also allows multi-operatory connectivity, which means doctors can monitor multiple systems across their office, leading to improved workflow efficiency.

    "Since adopting the GentleWave System, I have seen heightened productivity within my practice and more successful root canal procedures," said Rick Simcock, DDS, an endodontist based in Bellingham, Washington and a user of the GentleWave System. "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."

    The GentleWave G4 System will be showcased at EndoCon®, Sonendo's second annual endodontic conference on innovation, taking place in San Diego from Oct. 20-22.
