Periodontal Disease
Periowave

Periodontal or gum diseases are the #1 cause of tooth loss in adults and affect more than half of people over the age of 30. Because they are often painless, periodontal diseases may go undetected. Early detection is critical, however, as bacteria associated with periodontal diseases can travel into the bloodstream and result in other adverse health effects.

How do I know if I have a gum disease?

Do you have red, swollen, bleeding gums, persistent bad breath or tooth sensitivity? You may have some form of periodontal disease.

In a healthy mouth, shallow (1-3 mm deep) pockets exist where the teeth meet the gums. When gum disease occurs, these pockets deepen. Deeper pockets accumulate harmful bacteria, which may lead to increased gum inflammation and eventual bone loss.

Periodontal diseases occur when a bacterial infection develops where the gums join the teeth. Harmful bacteria release enzymes that can cause underlying bone loss, receding gums and eventual tooth loss.

PERIODONTAL DISEASES

- #1 cause of tooth loss in adults
- Affect more than half of people over age 30
- Often painless and may go undetected
- May be genetic and inherited
- Periodontal diseases occur when a bacterial infection develops where the gums join the teeth.  Harmful    bacteria release enzymes that can cause underlying bone loss, receding gums and eventual tooth loss.

Bacteria associated with periodontal diseases can travel into the bloodstream and may result in other adverse health effects. This makes early detection of periodontal diseases critical.

Periowave™ is a quick and painless technology that works to kill the bacteria associated with periodontal diseases, without the promotion of antibiotic resistance.

Periowave™ utilizes a non-thermal laser light combined with a photosensitizing solution designed to kill bacteria associated with the diseases. Killing the bacteria halts the progression of the disease and allows healing to begin.

PERIOWAVE™ is:
•    Painless
•    Non-Antibiotic
•    Quick
•    Effective
•    Safe

Step 1: IRRIGATE

Your dental professional irrigates the infected area with the Periowave™ photosensitizing solution. This solution attaches to the harmful bacteria.

Step 2: ILLUMINATE

A non-thermal diode laser light is placed into the periodontal pocket. The solution-filled treatment area is illuminated for 60 seconds, killing harmful bacteria and reducing virulence factors.

Bacteria associated with periodontal diseases can travel into the bloodstream and may result in other adverse health effects. This makes early detection of periodontal diseases critical.
