Perioscopy Image Videos

These video clips are recordings from the Perioscope. Note that they are not as clear as live viewing during a procedure because of the image degradation from Perioscope to DV tape to computer to YouTube, but you should be able to grasp the idea of what is being shown. Please see the Introduction to Perioscopy first and the graphic depiction to help you interpret these video images

NOTE: THERE ARE 7 VIDEOS ON THIS PAGE

Saliva Ejector. This video is an example that can be shown to patients so they can appreciate the scale of magnification as the fiber approaches the saliva ejector and then goes through one of the slots to view the inside of this small, very common part of our dental armamentarium.

#31D. When we are perfoming Perioscopic debridements, tactile or debridement "by feel" preceeds endoscopic debridement. This removes plaque from the pocket and gross calculus. This segment shows debridement without initial tactile debridement and you can see clouds of plaque and large pieces of calculus being removed before you can appreciate a Perioscopy clean root.

Fracture 10L. The Perioscope is a great tool for ruling out root fractures. Previously we had to either assume or surgically confirm fractures. Now with the aid of the Perioscope we can rule out fractures in a very minimally invasive way.

Enamel Projection. With the aid of diamond ultrasonics we can actually cut enamel and remove projections, enamel pearls, restoration overhangs, globular cementum and reshape furcations.

Arestin. This clip shows Arestin being placed into a pocket.

Root Resorption. Our patient presented with rapid attachment loss; pocketing and vertical bone loss. We suspected a root fracture on this previously hemisected, endodontically treated root. Note, the real problem was root resorption into the root canal filling

Caries 4D. Caries can be found with the Perioscope that clinical and radiographic evaluation may miss.This caries was found under an amalgam that unfortunately was left apical to a new crown.
