SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. (PRWEB) February 28, 2018
Board-certified periodontist, Dr. Steven Van Scoyoc, of Van Scoyoc Periodontics and Implants Center for Oral Health, announces his recent investment in the latest high-resolution Perioscopy™ technology for the treatment of gum disease in Southern Pines, NC. As a leading periodontal specialist, Dr. Van Scoyoc is highly experienced in Perioscopy, which is the process of performing non-surgical scaling and root planing therapy with the benefit of an endoscope. Patients experiencing bleeding or swollen gums, bad breath or other symptoms of gum disease may benefit from the advanced treatment. Focused on offering the latest in periodontal care, Dr. Van Scoyoc educates patients on the benefits of receiving minimally invasive Perioscopy treatment.
Perioscopy is a non-surgical method of treating gum disease. The protocol combines the high-powered resolution of a dental endoscope with the mechanical process of scaling and root planing therapy. Less than one millimeter in diameter, the fiber optic endoscope magnifies the field of view by 48 times, projecting a live image of the treatment area on to a nearby computer monitor. Perioscopy enables dental professionals to effectively “see” and debride tooth roots of plaque and tartar deposits, encouraging a greater reduction in bleeding, swollen gums and other symptoms of gum disease.
Dedicated to delivering the highest standard of treatment for gum disease in Southern Pines, NC, Dr. Van Scoyoc brings the latest generation of Perioscopy technology to his patients. The board-certified periodontist advises that even the most highly skilled clinician is unable to remove all deposits from below the gum line without the benefit of Perioscopy. Traditional scaling and root planing involves a highly skilled clinician inserting specialized instruments below the gum line, and relying solely on tactile sensitivity to locate and remove below-the-gum plaque and tartar deposits. “We know that 30 to 40 percent of debris can be left underneath the gum line even with an experienced clinician. When we use Perioscopy, we can see things that we never knew were there,” explains Dr. Van Scoyoc.
Patients with bleeding, swollen gums or other symptoms of gum disease in Southern Pines, NC, or those interested in learning more about the latest in Perioscopy technology, are encouraged to call 910-692-6270 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Van Scoyoc, or visit his website at http://www.perionc.com for additional information.
