Study Using Periowave™ Shows Rapid Resolution Of Aggressive Periodontitis

We’re pleased to announce today that the results of a study involving antimicrobial Photodynamic Therapy (aPDT), or Photodisinfection, were presented at the 13th International Photodynamic Association World Congress. This study, conducted by Dr. Veronique Benhamou, evaluated the use of the Periowave™ Photodisinfection System in the treatment of an aggressive case of periodontitis.

The current standard of care for aggressive periodontitis involves scaling and root planing in conjunction with antibiotic therapy. The subject of this study received scaling and root planing followed by aPDT (PeriowaveTM) in place of any antibiotic therapy.  This protocol produced rapid, clinically significant results and no adverse events were reported.  The significance of the results was confirmed through standard clinical tests and x-rays.

Periowave™ is a painless, non-invasive procedure that can significantly improve treatment outcomes when added to scaling and root planing.
