Our office utilizes advanced technology called Piezosurgery to make your dental surgery more effective and comfortable for you.
What is Piezosurgery?
The piezosurgery system uses ultrasound waves to vibrate an instrument to cut hard tissue (bone) without damaging soft tissue; whereas, traditional instruments, such as drills and burs, are less precise. Where precession is needed, piezosurgery technology eliminates this risk. This means Dr. Suttle or Dr. Pierce are able to perform procedures such as tooth extractions, crown lengthening, ridge expansion, periodontal surgery, sinus elevations, and implant site preparation with increased accuracy and minimal discomfort or post-treatment complications.
Benefits of Piezosurgery:
Accuracy – Bone 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 virtually 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. This is due to overall less trauma that occurs with piezosurgery. 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.
