Periodontal Laser - PerioLase
Research conducted by two renowned dentists led to the development of a minimally invasive gum tissue therapy that incorporates an Nd:YAG laser (most widely used laser platform in modern dentistry) that represents successful alternative to traditional perio therapies.
The PerioLaseTM from Millennium Dental Technologies is a specialized Nd:YAG (Neodymium: Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) laser with the unique features necessary to perform a variety of soft tissue procedures. Click here to watch a video animation of how the PerioLase treatment is performed.

Periowave is a quick and painless technology that works to kill the bacteria associated with periodontal diseases, without the promotion of antibiotic resistance.
Perio Wave utilizes a non-thermal laser light combined with a photosensitizing solution designed to kill bacteria associated with the diseases. Killing the bacteria halts the progression of the disease and allows healing to begin.
The technology is promoted to be painless, non-antibiotic, quick, effective and safe. Click here to watch a video that discusses and demonstrates this choice of treatment alternatives.
Arrestin is an antibiotic, minocycline, which is a member of the tetracycyine class of antibiotics.
Minicycline exerts its antimicrobial activity by prohibiting ptotein synthesis of the bacteria and has been shown to be effective against the pathogens associated with periodontal disease. Arrestin is a powder that is blown into the pockets with a special syringe (plastic tube, not a needle). It maintains its therapeutic drug concentration for up to 21 days of administration.
