Technology ยป Periowave™

Periowave™ ( is quick and painless technology that works to kill bacteria associated with periodontal (gum) 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 gum disease. Killing the bacteria halts the progression of the disease and allows healing to begin. Periowave™ is designed to be used in conjunction with scaling and root planing to offer dentists and hygienists a powerful treatment for gum disease.
