Piezosurgery® is among the newer techniques used to cut bone tissue without damaging soft tissue. The procedure involves using ultrasonic micro-vibrations to cut away the amount of bone tissue necessary for creating the best possible implant placement site. The procedure was developed for use in oral surgery, implantology, and periodontics. The innovative technology used in this procedure now allows dental professionals to perform a number of procedures with less trauma to surrounding structures.
Unlike traditional methods of cutting away bone tissue that often leads to some tissue and bone loss, Piezosurgery® uses ultrasonic vibrations for a much more precise and controlled procedure. There is no drilling involved and Dr. Walsh and Dr. Weightman can perform the procedure with more accuracy and without causing any unnecessary tissue and bone loss. This procedure also offers the added benefit of minimal patient discomfort.
Dr. Walsh and Dr. Weightman can perform a number of procedures, including tooth extractions, periodontal therapy, crown lengthening procedures, and implant site preparation with more precision and minimal trauma to the mouth and jaw. Doctors around the country continue to report positive results with Piezosurgery®, and patients are enjoying the benefits of faster healing times, less post-operative pain, and less swelling.
