The Perioscope features fiberoptic technology that enables the clinician to view and effectively treat areas below the gum line, without surgery. A miniature camera, attached to a tiny probe is placed below the gum line and an image, magnified 48x, is immediately displayed on a chair side video screen. This visibility allows for the most effective removal of bacteria below the gums.
The Perioscope procedure, due to its intricate nature, generally takes about 1-3 hours. Patients do not report discomfort with the Perioscope, during or after!
We are pleased to be able to provide you with this state-of-the-art treatment alternative and would be happy to discuss any questions you might have.
