periowave

periowavePeriowave™ is a painless, non-invasive procedure that can significantly improve treatment outcomes when added to scaling and root planing (SRP). Using a powerful process known as photodisinfection, it inactivates many of the bacteria and toxins that SRP leaves behind.

Periowave™ is a non-antibiotic therapy that, unlike antibiotics, quickly destroys gram negative bacteria without promoting the development of bacterial resistance. Periowave™ does not exhibit many of the issues commonly associated with antibiotics, such as allergic or sensitivity reactions, opportunistic infections such as oral yeast infections, or the requirement to take prolonged doses of medication. As Periowave™ utilizes a cold (non-thermal), low-power diode laser as the activating light, it does not cause damage to root surfaces or surrounding tissues. There is no heat involved in this process.
