Multisonic Ultracleaning

The Multisonic Ultracleaning System, currently scheduled to debut at the 2014 AAE Annual Session, is designed to be a disruptive technology that uses a mixture of irrigating fluids and sound waves to clean inside the roots of teeth.  It quickly, easily, and safely loosens and removes all the pulp tissue, debris, decay, and bacteria from the entire root canal system within minutes. The system is designed to automatically and simultaneously clean all canals in about 5 minutes, as well as improve the clinical quality and business performance of root canal therapy. sonendo 02

New paradigm

Sonendo’s design goals allow for little to no traditional instrumentation (endodontic file) required, with procedure time dramatically reduced. The Multisonic Ultracleaning System does not remove structural dentin, preserving the structural integrity of the tooth. Sonendo is focused to bring to market a device that will provide an end-odontic treatment that is highly predictable for every procedure, more comfortable for the patient, faster and more efficient for the practice, offering a significant cleaner and disinfected treatment area compared to current standards.

Sonendo’s system is not yet commercially available for sale or distribution.
