Local company Synedgen hopes to improve oral health with the launch of Synedent®, a new oral rinse that freshens breath and helps to clean teeth and gums, without the burn or irritation of commonly used oral rinses.

Prisyna, the business unit of Synedgen that distributes its personal care and cosmetic products, is launching its first significant production of 5,000 bottles of Synedent in the Claremont area and online. Synedent is available online directly at, and on the shelves at Wolfe's Market, a specialty grocery store in Claremont. Synedgen is also working with dental offices and distributors to provide broader distribution in the coming months.

Synedgen’s founders have a long history in the Claremont community. William P. Wiesmann, M.D. is a Trustee Emeritus at Harvey Mudd College and has worked as a liaison with faculty and students on a variety of Clinic Projects over the past two decades. Shenda Baker, PhD has been a Professor of Chemistry at Harvey Mudd College since 1991. Wiesmann and Baker founded Synedgen Inc. to use natural polymers, polysaccharides, as the basis of new approaches to create innovative, sustainable and environmentally compatible health care products. The company is using PakLab, a local contract manufacturer in nearby Chino, to bottle and label the Synedent for local and national distribution.

“Synedent is a completely novel approach to oral care. It’s made from naturally derived and environmentally compatible ingredients, has a fresh taste and is formulated with a balanced pH that doesn’t harm teeth nor irritate sensitive mouths,” stated Shenda Baker, President and Chief Operating Officer at Synedgen. “Having Synedent conveniently available in Claremont in addition to our web site is a great opportunity for our neighbors to be some of the first customers to try our new oral rinse. ”

“Test users have commented on the friendly “mouth-feel” and improved dental check ups. We feel this product will please both dentists and patients,” added William Wiesmann, CEO and Chairman of the Board at Synedgen. “We’ve only added ingredients that need to be in the product, keeping Synedent safe and simple. The combined effect of our selected ingredients permits efficient cleaning with smaller amounts compared to other oral rinses.”

Synedent has an added benefit — it provides moisture to dry mouth conditions. Users who suffer from dry mouth due to prescription drugs or poor salivary flow have noted that Synedent helps to make theirs mouth feel moister.

Unlike other oral rinse products containing chemicals that taste bad or are environmentally unfriendly, such as alcohol, chlorhexidine, or triclosan, Synedent relies on a patented combination of natural-based products that gently help to rinse the mouth without the burning sensation of harsh detergents or alcohol.
