Surgery is the traditional treatment option for people diagnosed with advanced stages of periodontal (gum) disease. Now with perioscopy, for some patients periodontal surgery is not necessary. Both Dr Rosenberg and his hygienists have had extensive training in perioscopy and have been utilizing this technology to successfully treat patients with periodontal disease for over 5 years.
Perioscopy utilizes a miniature dental endoscope with advanced video, lighting and 48 times magnification that allows clinicians to see details of tooth anatomy and mineralised deposits and treat periodontal disease in a minimally invasive way.
The camera is attached to a probe which is gently placed below the gum line. The images are displayed on the video screen enabling the clinician and you to see. The magnification allows you to view details below the gum line that could have been easily missed.
