Canadian Multicentre Trial

Significant gains in clinical attachment level and reductions in pocket depth

This 121 patient, randomized, examiner-blinded, Canadian Multicentre Trial was designed to assess the efficacy and safety of the Periowave™ Photodisinfection System. Results of this study demonstrated significantly greater gains in clinical attachment level (CAL) versus SRP alone (p<0.0001), and significantly reduced pocket depth (PD) versus SRP alone (p<0.0001), for all patients treated with the commercially available Periowave™ Photodisinfection System.
