The endoscope, in this case, is a miniature camera attached to a tiny fiber-optic probe that gently works below the gum line. It provides advanced video, lighting, and magnification capabilities. During the procedure, your periodontist or hygienist can view, diagnose, and plan treatment for areas below the gum line. Perioscopy provides 20-40X magnification that shows even minute details under you gums that easily could have been missed with less advanced examination methods.

The benefits far outweigh the time investment and in the long-run make a difference.
