Since first being introduced into the Canadian market in 2006, Periowave™ has been making steady progress towards being integrated into the Canadian dental industry. More and more Canadian clinicians have come to depend on Periowave™ as a simple solution to complex infections and have come to trust Periowave™ as being safe, effective and easy to use.
The PeriowaveTM team had a fantastic time last week at the Pacific Dental Conference. We were energized by three amazing events sponsored by Periowave Dental Technologies Inc. and we are glad to have had the opportunity to meet current and prospective PeriowaveTM users. The PeriowaveTM booth, “Laser Focused in 2011” cocktail party, and “Photodynamic Disinfection” lecture were all big hits.
Scaling and root planing (SRP), is the dental procedure that removes plaque and calculus from the outer surfaces of the tooth and root using mechanical instruments. SRP is used to primarily remove the plaque and calculus that adhere to the surfaces of the tooth. While thorough SRP is quite effective at removing much of the subgingival calculus, it leaves behind bacterial biofilm. Biofilms are a complex community of microorganisms that can develop on the tooth surface and form plaque. These biofilms are a primary cause of periodontitis or gum disease.
Emerging research links periodontal disease to other health problems including heart and respiratory diseases, preterm low birth-weight babies, stroke, osteoporosis, diabetes, and cancer. Periodontal disease is the number-one cause of tooth loss. According to the 1996 American Dental Association/Colgate survey, U.S. dentists say gum disease is a more pressing oral health concern than tooth decay by a 2-to-1 margin.1 Read More
