A recent case study using Periowave completed by By Catherine Fairfield, RDH, Alberta:

Patient Profile: 69-year old, non-smoker male with generalized chronic periodontitis. Regularly scheduled supportive periodontal therapy (SPT) with unresponsive 7 mm pocket depth with heavy bleeding on probing on mesial of #13 (Fig 1.1).

Treatment Protocol: Initial Periowave treatment: 6 days after SPT due to heavy BOP in 7 mm PD treatment site.
