Laser Disinfection—Periowave. The new gold standard in the treatment of gum disease

The guide:

Periowave™ is a painless, non-invasive procedure that can significantly improve treatment outcomes when added to conventional scaling and root planing (SRP). Using a powerful process known as photodisinfection, it inactivates many of the bacteria and toxins that SRP leaves behind.

Periowave™ is a non-antibiotic therapy that quickly destroys gram negative bacteria without promoting the development of bacterial resistance. Many of the issues commonly associated with antibiotics, are eliminated using Periowave™. It utilises a cold (non-thermal), low-power diode laser as the activating light and does not cause damage to root surfaces or surrounding tissues. There is no heat involved in this process.

Periowave™ is an effective, minimally invasive, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory treatment. It is these characteristics that make it ideal for the treatment of gum disease.

Our hygienist is highly experienced in the use of periowave. We are fortunate to be the only periowave registered practice in Leeds!
