How Periowave™ Works

Periowave is an effective, minimally invasive, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory treatment. It uses the powerful photodisinfection reaction to inactivate the harmful bacteria and toxins that are left behind after scaling and root planing.

Photodisinfection is based on a simple, two-step procedure:

  1. Irrigate: The specially formulated Periowave photosensitizing solution is topically applied to the gums at the treatment site. It then preferentially attaches to the harmful bacteria and toxins associated with periodontal disease.
  2. Illuminate: A thin, plastic light diffusing tip is painlessly placed into the treatment site. The treatment site is illuminated with a specifically calibrated laser light, activating the photosensitizing solution and destroying the harmful bacteria and toxins. Each treatment site requires only 60 seconds of laser activation, making Periowave a quick, painless, and stress-free procedure.
