The main purpose of periodontal surgery is to gain access to the diseased root to see the deposits that need to be removed. For the first time, clinicians using the dental endoscope can see magnified details of tooth anatomy and deposits sub-gingivally, to diagnose and treat periodontal disease in a minimally invasive way.
The Perioscopy System combines traditional endoscopy with the unique requirements to effectively treat periodontal disease by using a miniature endoscope. The high definition camera and display allows to perform sub-gingival ultrasonic, endoscopic debridement that is more effective and can prevent the need for surgery.
How it works?
The miniature scope is placed inside anatomically designed probes that are gently held beneath the surface, while the magnified image is displayed, live, on monitor. Periodontal debridement is performed in each quadrant using the displayed image as a guide. This approach is optimal for both clinician and patient, with less pain, more effective results and less chair time than surgery.
The pressurized water delivery system keeps the field clean for optimal visibility.

The CCD/LED camera attaches to the controller which has a focus knob for the camera and provides white balance, gain control and illumination settings.
Explorers are color coded red for right and yellow for left. They are bent in the direction of use and are designed for optimal visualization.
The 2 liter bottle is connected directly to the Perioscopy endoscope sheath, and contains it's own pedal to control the water pressure.
This state of the art treatment increases patient acceptance, enhances patient referrals and referrals from general dentists due the specialized technique that is more comfortable, effective and provides long-term improvement.As the minimally-invasive non-surgical alternative, Perioscopy is indicated for patients needing a:
periodontal initial therapy
follow up to their initial treatment
maintenance of chronically inflamed pockets
Deep Scaling / Root Planing
as well as to aid in the detection of subgingival caries, root fracturees, resorption
