PIROP Biometric scanner ( G-scan )
Pirop G
Biometric Scanner

State-of-the-art  ultrasonic device PIROP in intraoral application for biometry soft tissue thickness in the periodontium (Gingival Thickness) – GUM/Gingiva – Periodontal Soft Tissue biometrics.

PIROP user’s interface based on touch screen technology makes operation easy and user-friendly.

Undoubted advantages of using the Pirop device to measure the mucosa thickness  are  fast measurement, very high accuracy and  a complete  noninvasiveness during an ultrasonic examination.
