Dental Endoscope

At the Implant & Perio Center of Kansas, we are committed to offering our patients the most advanced and effective treatment options for periodontal disease. One of the cutting-edge technologies we utilize is the dental endoscope, specifically the DeVA-1 2G by OraVu. This state-of-the-art device revolutionizes how we approach non-surgical periodontal treatments, providing enhanced visualization and improved outcomes.

Understanding the Dental Endoscope

The dental endoscope is a specialized camera that allows dental professionals to see deep into periodontal pockets without the need for surgical flap procedures or incisions into the gums. This technology is particularly beneficial for procedures such as tissue and root therapy (TRT), also known as scaling and root planing (SRP), or deep cleaning. The primary goal of TRT or SRP is to remove as much plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the root surfaces as possible. This process encourages the gums to reattach to the teeth, thereby reducing the periodontal pockets.

Traditional vs. Modern Techniques

Traditional TRT or SRP is performed blindly, meaning the dental hygienist has no direct view of the periodontal pockets being treated. This limitation can result in as much as 40% of calculus or harmful deposits being left behind, potentially compromising the treatment’s effectiveness. The introduction of the dental endoscope has changed this scenario dramatically. By providing a clear and magnified view of the periodontal pockets, the dental hygienist can perform more precise and thorough cleaning, significantly improving treatment outcomes.

The DeVA-1 2G by OraVu

The DeVA-1 2G endoscope used in our office is a micro-camera designed to fit below the gum line, capturing high-definition images deep within the periodontal pocket. This advanced device utilizes hundreds of illuminating fibers to deliver a live, clear image with up to 100x magnification of the periodontal pocket and root surfaces. Such detailed visualization allows for more accurate identification and removal of plaque, tartar, and bacteria.

Benefits of the DeVA-1 2G Endoscope

  1. Enhanced Precision and Effectiveness: With the ability to see into the periodontal pockets, our dental hygienists can perform TRT or SRP with greater accuracy, ensuring that harmful deposits are thoroughly removed.
  2. Minimized Invasiveness: The dental endoscope eliminates the need for surgical incisions, making the procedure less invasive and reducing recovery time for patients.
  3. Improved Patient Outcomes: The detailed visualization provided by the DeVA-1 2G endoscope leads to more successful treatments, as it allows for better cleaning and healthier reattachment of the gums to the teeth.
  4. Increased Patient Satisfaction: Patients appreciate the less invasive nature of the procedure and the reduced risk of complications associated with traditional surgical methods.
  5. Cost-Effective Alternative: For patients seeking a more effective treatment than traditional blind scaling or wanting to avoid the costs and risks of surgical procedures, the dental endoscope offers a highly effective solution.
