We offer Periowave at Bowmanville Dental. This preventative and active treatment is non invasive, non antibiotic, non surgical, gentle and effective for bleeding gums, swollen gums, gum infections, abscess, or periodontal disease.
Periowave is safe for any patient, including pregnant or nursing mothers suffering from gestational diabetes, patients in treatment for cancer using chemotherapy or radiation treatment, patients on multiple medications or those with high blood pressure or heart conditions. There are no contra indications with Periowave other than an allergy to methylene blue. If you are allergic to fava beans, you are allergic to methylene blue. Even with the allergy, the dose needed to treat you using Periowave is not a high enough dose to cause an allergic reaction.
Periowave is not new to the medical community. Dermatologists have been using this treatment for 25 years to treat infected pores. Today, hospitals are having success using the treatment for wound disinfection and even treating flesh eating bacterial infections. Of course, Periowave laser and solution is designed to treat your mouth and gums. Learn more by watching the video.
