Dr. David Trylovich and Dr. Ryan Gifford, periodontists in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV now utilize the newest model of the most high tech dental fiber optic endoscope, the Perioscope. The Perioscope is ideal for patients looking to treat periodontal disease, but wish to avoid gum or laser surgery. Dr. Trylovich and Dr. Gifford are your clear choice for periodontal care.

Las Vegas and Henderson, NV periodontists, Drs. David Trylovich and Ryan Gifford announce they now use the newest model of the Perioscope to treat periodontal disease. The Perioscope is a high-tech, miniature fiber optic camera that allows the doctors to see under the gumline to remove harmful bacterial deposits that cause periodontitis and bone loss. Drs. Trylovich and Gifford have utilized this technology for over 11 years and are pleased to continue offering this effective treatment with the makers newest model.

According to the American Dental Association, gum disease is one of the most common infections throughout the world. Half of the US population age 30 and older have periodontitis and 60 percent of those are aged 60 and older. Symptoms of gum disease include red, swollen gums and bleeding when brushing. If the gums are not properly cared for by a dental professional during this stage, deep spaces called periodontal pockets can begin to form between the teeth and gums. Here, plaque and bacteria begin to accumulate and begin to destroy the bone and structures that support the teeth. Without treatment, the bacteria can result in bone and tooth loss, along with other serious complications.

For many, treating periodontal disease with lasers or gum surgery are not ideal options, which is why Drs. Trylovich and Gifford offer an alternative solution. The newest Perioscope system now has an LED light source, a better camera, larger imaging and monitor for enhanced root surface viewing. This allows the doctors to more accurately treat periodontal disease. Using the Perioscope, the doctors place a small optic fiber gently under the gum tissue, which magnifies the root surface 24-48 times. Drs. Trylovich and Gifford are then able to see the bacterial and calculus build-up close-up, allowing them to more accurately remove the infection.

Trylovich and Gifford have used the Perioscope technology more than any other periodontal or dental office in the world, and encourage residents of Las Vegas and Henderson who are experiencing symptoms of gum disease to contact their office to schedule a consultation.
