this device we can:
Visualize your root surfaces, tooth structure and other areas that
normally cannot be seen unless surgery is performed.
We can locate and remove residual or missed areas of calculus that prevent your
gums from healing.
This allows more complete healing to take place
We can also diagnose other problems below the gum line, such as fractures of the
root and cavities.
We are pleased to inform you that we have recently acquired the most advanced
technology in the area of non-invasive periodontal therapy. The DV2
Perioscopy System is a medical grade endoscope with a miniaturized tip. It
allows us to image the root surface in the subgingival environment. Therefore,
we can see the actual results of root debridement while root planing is
performed. The live time, magnified image is viewed on a chair side LCD screen.
Additionally, the images can be captured in a computer file or even recorded on
a standard VCR.
