Cost of perioscopy
Perioscopy can cost thousands less than surgery, and can often be done in one appointment. Many full mouth periodontal office treatments can be four hours of surgery and can require the additional expense of bone grafting, sedation, and time off work. Add to this the many follow-up appointments to remove sutures and monitor healing following gum surgery. Periodontal surgery may also create severe root sensitivity, making eating or drinking very uncomfortable for weeks, months, or even years.
