At Progressive Dental your Oral Hygiene is important to us. Good Oral Hygiene is the foundation for a lifetime of Good Health and we are proud to announce that we now use the latest in non-thermal light technology called the PerioWave.
Periowave Patient Presentation
Periowave is the latest in non-thermal light technology. We use the laser light combinded with a photosensitizing solution to kill the bacteria associated with periodontal (gum) disease.
Periodontal (gum) disease occurs when a bacterial infection develops where the gums and teeth join. Harmful bacteria release enzymes that will cause bone loss, receding gums and eventually tooth loss. Red, swollen, bleeding gums, persistent bad breath or tooth sensitivity are signs of periodontal (gum) disease. In a healthy mouth 1 to 3mm (shallow) pocket depths exist where the teeth and gums meet. Pockets that measure 4mm and greater indicate gum disease may be present! Your dentist or dental hygienist will evaluate the health of your gums by recording measurements from probe readings.
With the advanced technology of the "Periowave, we are now able to broaden our scope of "non-surgical" services and improve the standard of care for all our patients. The Periowave is painless, non-antibiotic, quick, effective and safe! This allows us to use the Periowave in conjunction with scaling and root planning to provide the optimal care for the fight against periodontal (gum disease).
We are always looking for the latest technology so that we have the most Progressive approach to you and your families dental care. Call us today to book your appointment.
