The traditional method of performing many dental procedures often involves the use of tools like drills and burs. Though these tools do remove hard tissues, using them puts your soft tissues at risk for injury. However, when we perform tooth extractions, crown lengthening, ridge augmentation, periodontal treatment, and implant site preparation at our office, we use the safer dental lasers of the piezosurgery system.
The piezosurgery equipment uses ultrasound waves to remove bone tissue. This system is so accurate that it eliminates the risk for damaging arteries, nerves, and the sinus membrane that surrounds hard oral tissues. It can also help to reduce discomfort by minimizing swelling and bleeding, which also speeds up healing time. Piezosurgery is safe to use, offering improved accuracy that patients will love.
