Piezosurgery is an advanced technology that uses ultrasound waves to cut bone without damaging soft tissue. Piezosurgery eliminates the risk of tissue and bone loss, and allows our dentists to perform procedures with increased accuracy and minimal discomfort. Procedures that are enhanced by piezosurgery include tooth extractions, crown lengthening, ridge expansion, and implant site preparation.

There are many benefits to piezosurgery, including:

  • Accuracy – In traditional surgeries, there is a high risk of damaging the soft tissue surrounding bones, such as arteries, nerves, and sinus membranes. Piezosurgery technology is extremely accurate and specific to the surgery site, so risk of damage is greatly reduced.
  • Comfort – If traditional surgical instruments, such as drills or burs, cause you anxiety, piezosurgery will come as a relief. Piezosurgery technology completes treatments with minimal swelling, bleeding, and reduced pain.
  • Accelerated healing – Healing time is accelerated when piezosurgery is used. It is less invasive, meaning that you will heal faster and experience less pain or discomfort following your procedure.
  • Safety – Piezosurgery is extremely safe.
