Perioscopy – The next step in gum disease treatment
Traditionally, the more aggressive treatment option for people suffering from the advanced stages of periodontal disease was surgery. Now there is a new procedure called Perioscopy, featuring miniaturized digital video technology, which enables Dr. Longbottom to diagnose and treat areas below the gum line without the discomfort and inconvenience of surgery.
State of the Art technology …
During Perioscopy, a miniature camera called a dental endoscope is attached to a small probe or cleaning instrument and then gently placed bellow the gum line. Using this unique visualization device, Dr. Longbottom is able to achieve very thorough cleaning to the bottom of the pocket, which promotes healing and potentially prevents further damage and tooth loss.
