Perioscopy uses a small fiberoptic camera attached to a dental probe (Perioscopy Explorer); this probe is then placed subgingivally. The images are immediately displayed on a chairside monitor and magnified 20-40 times, disclosing minute details that previously may have been undetectable, such as caries, root fractures, perforations, resorption and, of course, calculus.
The Perioscopy Users Forum reviews treatment protocol, business models and case studies. This forum is open to oral health care providers interested in the benefits of the most minimally invasive way to visualize the subgingival environment. If you are not a Perioscopy user, we welcome your interest, comments, and questions.
