February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, and those with the progressive condition of gum disease in Henderson and Las Vegas, NV can take advantage of the month by getting the treatment they need from experienced local periodontists. Drs. David J. Trylovich and Ryan S. Gifford offer the latest non-surgical approach using technology called a perioscope.

Drs. David J. Trylovich and Ryan S. Gifford are pleased to announce that they have implemented the latest in periodontal technology, just in time for Gum Disease Awareness Month. For the last 11 years, they have offered care to their patients using an important tool called the perioscope, but now technology has improved enough that they have implemented an advanced form of this technology to better serve their patients. The perioscope is a device that allows Drs. Trylovich and Gifford to view pockets of infection that form during gum disease. With the help of this device, they can often treat gum disease in Henderson and Las Vegas, NV patients without surgery.

Gum disease begins when harmful oral bacteria produce toxins that impact the gum tissues. They redden and become inflamed in their irritation, yet the condition rarely causes pain. If this early stage of disease goes untreated, the bacteria work their way under the gums and slowly move along the roots of the teeth. An active infection causes the gums to detach from the tooth surfaces, forming unhealthy spaces called pockets. The perioscope has a thin fiber optic probe that gently slides into pockets and sends pictures of the area to a screen. Without cutting into the gums, Drs. Trylovich and Gifford can then see and access the infection and tartar deposits along the roots of the teeth. Treating gum disease in Henderson and Las Vegas, NV has never been easier.

Regarding those for whom laser treatment is not ideal, the perioscope can help Drs. Trylovich and Gifford accurately see and treat the disease. Based on what they see, they can either treat the infection while they watch their progress on the screen or gain better insight to recommend other types of treatment. Thanks to the technology’s new LED lighting, sharp images, and larger monitor, these periodontists can magnify images 24 to 48 times, allowing them to improve their ability to diagnose and treat the condition.
