The addition of Periowave to a practice can benefit the oral health of your patients immediately, and on a wide scale. Through training and education, we are committed to helping dental professionals adopt this important tool, and making it as easy to integrate into daily practice as possible.
Fight inflammation and infection without heat or antibiotics.
Periowave is ideally suited for patients with peri-implantitis, endodontic disease, or 4+mm defect sites that bleed on probing. Periowave should be used following thorough scaling and root planing once post-instrumentation bleeding has been controlled. Treatment of contralateral sides of affected interproximal teeth is recommended. Deep pockets may require retreatment at 1-2 weeks from the initial treatment.
Patient outcomes should include a reduction or elimination of bleeding on probing, reduced inflammation, an improvement in gingival tissue tone and texture, a reduction in pocket depth and gain in clinical attachment level.
Long-term results may include bone regeneration.
Quick, Painless, and effective; Periowave offers an experience unlike any other in dental therapy.
What to expect in the clinic:
Periowave is a painless and stress-free procedure for both the patient and the clinician. The treatment follows thorough scaling and root planing and can be carried out immediately or a few days later. In patients with chronic adult periodontitis, Periowave has been proven in clinical trials to significantly reduce pocket depth, bleeding on probing, and improve clinical attachment level.
Each laser treatment cycle is only 60 seconds. No heat is generated during treatment and therefore no tissue is burned. The selective action of the photosensitizing solution and light illumination avoids damage to healthy human tissue. The patient should experience no pain during this short light activation procedure. Deeper pockets may require a second or third treatment.
Stress Free Dentistry:
The patient receives Periowave treatment after professional scaling and root planing. This simple treatment instantly destroys many of the toxins, inflammatory molecules and pathogenic bacteria that are often left behind after scaling and root planing.
The patient leaves the dental office without the need for any home compliance, significantly fewer pathogenic bacteria below the gum line, and a visible reduction in inflammation. Without the presence of the harmful toxins, inflammatory molecules and pathogenic bacteria associated with periodontal disease, the body begins the process of healing. A reduction in pocket depth, bleeding on probing, and improvement in clinical attachment can be observed.
Standard Therapy without Periowave:
The patient receives professional scaling and root planing from the dental professional. However, patients may leave the dental office with up to 63% of the pathogenic bacteria associated with periodontal disease remaining below the gumline.
Homecare methods are often insufficient to manage the bacteria deep below the gum line, and calculus re-establishes. The patient’s host immune response results in damage to gingival tissue and periodontal bone structure.
