What is Piezosurgery?
The piezosurgery system uses ultrasound waves to cut bone and remove hard tissue without damaging soft tissue. Whereas traditional methods of bone-cutting, such as drills and burs, result in some tissue and bone loss regardless of the dentist’s precision, piezosurgery technology eliminates this risk.
WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEANS TO THE PATIENT?
This means less invasive and less traumatic tooth extractions. A higher level of precision, increased accuracy, and faster healing times after crown lengthening procedures. Periodontal therapy and implant site preparation can be carried out with less discomfort and shorter periods of recovery.
Benefits of Piezosurgery touch:
Accuracy – Hard tissue is surrounded by soft tissue including arteries, nerves, and sinus membranes. In traditional surgery, there is great risk of damaging this precious tissue, but with piezosurgery, the system is so accurate and specific to the surgery site that this risk is eliminated.
Comfort – If you fear the trauma associated with drills and burs, piezosurgery eliminates this problem as well. The procedures completed with piezosurgery technology result in minimal bleeding and swelling, and reduced pain.
Healing Time – Healing time is accelerated when piezosurgery technology is used. Not only will you heal faster than with traditional surgery, but you will experience minimal post-operative pain or discomfort.
Safety – Piezosurgery techniques are extremely safe.
