We use some of the latest technology at Fine Periodontics, including the use of the piezosurgery. The improved accuracy of this system allows our periodontist to perform many procedures with reduced swelling, bleeding, and discomfort, allowing you to heal more quickly and feel more confident in our care. Please contact Fine Periodontics if you would like to learn more about piezosurgery in Greenville and Anderson, South Carolina.
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, sinus elevation, tori removal, and implant site preparation at our office, we use the safer of the piezosurgery system.
The piezosurgery equipment uses ultrasound waves to remove bone tissue. This system is so accurate that it eliminates the risk of 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. Please contact our practice if you would like to learn more about the piezosurgery system.
Gum Disease Laser Therapy
Laser gum treatment is a type of treatment for periodontal disease that is completed using a dental laser. Our periodontist may recommend laser gum treatment if your smile is affected by periodontal disease. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque. As the plaque builds up on the teeth, the bacteria may cause inflammation and infection in the gums and supporting tissues. When left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone loss and receding gums. Laser gum treatment is used to kill bacteria, remove infected tissue and encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. Through treatment, we strive to halt the progress of the disease and encourage the growth of healthy tissue.
Periodontal treatment completed using dental lasers is typically more comfortable than traditional methods. In fact, anesthetic may not even be required for your laser gum treatment. Laser gum treatment is efficient and comfortable. Laser dentistry often eliminates the need for stitches. It also decreases your risk of infection following treatment and minimizes bleeding.
