Perioscopy (visual scaling)
To perform perioscopy, we utilize an endoscope that has a tiny fiber optic camera. We can use this device to identify areas that have calculus(tartar) below your gumline without the need for exploratory scaling or painful surgeries. It also ensures that we are able to remove all tartar from beneath your gumline. This is beneficial because tartar and calculus lead to advanced periodontal disease and eventual tooth loss.
Because perioscopy allows us to target affected areas of your gums, it is actually less traumatic and costs about a third of what traditional periodontal treatments may cost. This technology gives us greater accuracy and more precision, leading to less painful and better results for you.
To determine if perioscopy is right for you, contact us to schedule an exam. Each patient is different, but we are here to help you get the treatment you need to stay healthy.
