A New Way to Treat Gum Disease: Perioscopy
Phoenix, AZ

Woman showing off her gums for signs of possible periodontal disease at Implant and Periodontal Wellness Center of Arizona in Phoenix, AZGum disease, medically known as periodontal disease, is a common oral condition characterized by inflammation of the gum tissue. This tissue plays a crucial role in supporting our teeth and maintaining their stability within the mouth. However, if left untreated, gum disease can progress, leading to the deterioration of the connection between the teeth and gums, ultimately resulting in tooth loosening and potential tooth loss. Despite sounding severe, gum disease stands as the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. At Implant and Periodontal Wellness Center of Arizona, we offer a non-surgical treatment known as perioscopy to address this condition and promote healthier teeth and gums.

What is Perioscopy Treatment?

Perioscopy treatment represents a minimally invasive non-surgical approach to managing persistent gum disease. This procedure uses a tiny fiber optic probe, or camera, gently inserted between the tooth and gum tissue to visualize and scope out the infection. By providing live stream images of the affected area with up to 48x magnification, perioscopy enables our team to thoroughly examine and address every minute detail of the infection. Subsequently, we utilize this information to perform a detailed cleaning, eliminating the source of the infection and promoting tissue healing.

Who Needs Perioscopy Treatment?

Perioscopy treatment is typically recommended for patients exhibiting escalating inflammation in their gum tissue, characterized by gum pocket depths exceeding 5mm and signs of tissue loss. Pocket depths of 3mm or less are considered healthy and normal. In such cases of deep gum pockets, targeted action is necessary to eradicate the infection and facilitate tissue healing.

Indications for Perioscopy

Perioscopy finds application in various dental scenarios, including scaling and root planing therapy, maintenance cleanings, and addressing failing dental implants. By enabling periodontists to visualize plaque deposits and tartar from tooth roots, perioscopy proves invaluable in the treatment of gum disease. Symptoms such as bleeding gums, halitosis, and signs of gum disease prompt consideration for perioscopy examination, offering a targeted approach to gum health management.

What Are the Benefits of Perioscopy Treatment?

Patients undergoing perioscopy treatment experience a range of benefits, including:
•  Non-Surgical Approach: Perioscopy treatment is completed without the need for cuts, stitches, or downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily activities promptly.
•  Detailed Visualization: Patients appreciate the clear, large images provided during perioscopy, facilitating enhanced education and communication between our team and the patient.
•  Detection if There Are Other Oral Health Concerns: Advanced dental technology enables us to identify even the smallest issues contributing to larger oral health concerns, ensuring comprehensive treatment and improved outcomes.

The Role of Perioscopy in Periodontal Care

Perioscopy treatment offers a sophisticated approach to managing gum disease/periodontal disease, and treating the spaces between the teeth and gums. Perioscopy serves as a versatile tool for addressing various gum and root issues, offering an alternative or supplementary approach to treatment and maintenance efforts. The treatment promotes quicker and easier tissue healing and preserving oral health. If you are experiencing symptoms of gum disease or wish to learn more about perioscopy, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our experienced dental team at Implant and Periodontal Wellness Center of Arizona.
