A New Dynamic in Periodontal Care
 
DO YOU HAVE PERIODONTAL DISEASE?

Do you have red, swollen, bleeding and puffy gums, persistent bad breath or tooth sensitivity? You may have some form of periodontal disease. In a healthy mouth, shallow (1-3 mm) 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 leading to lost teeth.
 
During your routine dental examination, the dentist or dental hygienist will evaluate your periodontal health. This includes measuring the space between your gum and tooth (periodontal pocket) and an assessment of your tissue health.
 
Periowave™ is a quick and painless technology that works to kill the bacteria associated with periodontal disease, without the promotion of antibiotic resistance. Periowave™ utilizes a non-thermal laser light to activate a photosensitizing solution designed to kill bacteria. Killing the bacteria halts the progression of the disease and allows healing to begin.

    UNDERSTANDING PERIODONTAL (GUM) DISEASE

    Periodontal disease occurs 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 Disease and your Overall Health
    • #1 cause of tooth loss in adults
    • Affects more than half of people over age 30
    • Often painless and may go undetected
    • May be genetically inherited
    Bacteria associated with periodontal disease can travel into the bloodstream and may contribute to adverse health effects. This makes early detection of periodontal disease critical. Pockets
