What is it?

Piezosurgery was recently developed to use ultrasonic micro-vibrations to cut bone without damaging soft tissue. Piezosurgery was developed for use in oral surgery, implantology, and periodontics. This innovative technology allows doctors to complete procedures that were not possible before.

Piezosurgery in Palm Desert, California

Sometimes, to place a dental implant successfully, the jawbone must be modified to create an ideal site to receive the implant. Piezosurgery is often used to perform these surgeries when needed. Piezosurgery is a system that was developed for cutting bone without damaging soft tissue using ultrasonic micro-vibrations.

Traditional bone-cutting techniques (like drills and burs) can cause some tissue and bone lost no matter how careful and precise the doctor is. With Piezosurgery, this risk is eliminated. Instead of drilling, Piezosurgery uses a special surgical instrument to produce ultrasonic vibrations to achieve outstanding precision and patient comfort. Using Piezosurgery, Dr. Anne Nicholas can perform procedures like extractions, crown lengthening, periodontal therapy, and implant site preparation with increased accuracy and minimal discomfort. Leading doctors across the country are using Piezosurgery and achieving consistently positive results. Piezosurgery patients see amazing results with faster healing time, less swelling, and less post-operative pain!
