The long–term success of periodontal therapy is dependent on proper diagnosis and removal of subgingival tooth–borne accretions in the form of calculus and bacteria. From a clinical perspective, better visualization during the diagnostic and therapeutic phases has been shown to yield better results compared to traditional approaches.

Minimally Invasive Periodontal Therapy
evaluates the advantages of using minimal invasive techniques, the technologies available for enhancing visualization during minimally invasive therapy, and step–by–step illustrates the clinical use of each technique. Each chapter addresses the advantages and disadvantages of minimally invasive therapies, rationale for the approach, and the advantages and limitations of each of the current methods of improving visualization. The chapters then provide an evidence–based review of the technologies and procedures, and end with case studies for each visualization procedure, featuring clinical photographs.

  • Evidence–based presentation of the latest technologies in surgical microscopes, dental endoscopes, and dental videoscopes
  • Clinical cases for each minimally invasive visualization procedure
  • Companion website features video demonstrations of visualization techniques.
