What Are The Advantages of Perioscopy?

Woman holding the side of her cheek with possible gum disease at Implant and Periodontal Wellness Center of Arizona in Phoenix, AZBrushing and flossing constitute essential components of your dental hygiene regimen. Nonetheless, relying solely on these practices may prove insufficient for achieving comprehensive oral health cleanliness. It's crucial to recognize that teeth extend beneath the gum line and into the jawbone, areas inaccessible to conventional brushing and flossing techniques. This recognition underscores the importance of incorporating perioscopy into our routine preventive maintenance for patients here at Implant and Periodontal Wellness Center of Arizona.

What is Perioscopy?

Perioscopy involves the utilization of a miniaturized tool known as an endoscope that is inserted below the gum line. The endoscope employs a tiny light and camera to capture images of the concealed gum pockets that are adjacent to the tooth root. This enables us to identify any problematic areas where bacteria may be accumulating. Areas that we could not otherwise see.

What Are the Benefits of Perioscopy?

Perioscopy offers several advantages over traditional methods, such as periodontal surgery, of cleaning below the gum line.

Minimally Invasive

Firstly, perioscopy is minimally invasive. This results in a less traumatic experience for patients, as well as shorter recovery times. Additionally, the use of the endoscope allows for the expedited identification of any bacterial pockets, minimizing unnecessary contact with the tooth root and reducing the risk of tooth sensitivity.

Identify Other Oral Health Issues

Furthermore, the video feed from the camera facilitates the detection of any other dental conditions that may have been overlooked previously, contributing to enhanced preventive dentistry.

Cost Considerations

Contrary to common misconceptions, perioscopy is a cost-effective option compared to traditional gum disease/periodontal disease treatments like surgery. In fact, it may cost as little as one-third of alternative treatment options, making it an appealing choice for many patients seeking comprehensive dental care.

Pain Management

Perioscopy typically involves less pain than traditional methods of cleaning bacterial pockets below the gum line. While anesthesia is available for patient comfort, the procedure is generally less traumatic than conventional periodontal operations. Patients can expect a relatively comfortable experience during perioscopy.
