This extremely tiny, fiber optic camera is used in our office for those patients that are experiencing a handful of dental issues, or who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease. This has been a useful tool in pinpointing exactly where the main issues are located and how to deal with them based on how bad they show up. Finding out the reasons and the main issues for having a perioscopy done is important, because you may require one, or want to have one if you're dealing with some dental issues you want to have resolved.
Why Have the Perioscopy Procedure Performed?
There are many reasons to have this procedure done, but the biggest reason is because you have periodontal disease. Our office feels that this procedure will give us a look into how far this disease has progressed in your mouth. It can also help us locate the problem areas that we should address first, over others. This tiny microscope can also be used to see in small crevices inside the gums and under the teeth if there are infections, debris stuck, or small issues that may be unseen to the naked eye. This small camera provides a look into these areas that might be unseen any other way, but the patient can feel the issues. Those that are considering this procedure or have been recommended to have the procedure done, can find that this might be the best move to make. Speak with our office today and ask us any questions that you may have regarding the perioscopy procedure that you are thinking about having done. We can answer any and all questions that you may have, provide an exam, and see if it is something that is required for your particular oral issue. Call us today and we would be more than happy to set up an appointment.
