Perioscopy- Periodontal Endoscope (Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy)

The perioscope is a new technology developed for the treatment of periodontal disease. The perioscope is an endoscope that has been specifically designed to explore and visualize the pocket (space) under the gum of teeth involved with periodontitis. An image on a computer monitor shows the diseased tooth’s root surface. The perioscope enables the doctors and hygienists at the farber center to see the contents of your periodontal pocket and to analyze the root surface of the tooth for disease-causing bacterial accumulations (plaque and calculus).
The perioscope guides the clinicians here during the process of cleaning your root surfaces free of plaque and calculus – the treatment for periodontitis. It also allows the clinicians here to identify other problems (cracks, perforations and other disease-causing flaws of the tooth root’s surface) that are located under the gum, and which previously required surgery to detect.

Farber Center For Periodontics & Dental Implants is one of the few offices in Long Island  to provide this non surgical approach to periodontal therapy.        Perioscope Monitor
