What is Piezosurgery?
The piezosurgery system uses ultrasound waves to cut bone without damaging soft tissue. Whereas traditional methods of bone-cutting, such as drills and burs, result in some tissue and bone loss regardless of the dentist’s precision, piezosurgery technology eliminates this risk. This means Doctors Farber, Chondrogiannis, and Batalias are able to perform procedures such as tooth extractions, crown lengthening, ridge expansion, periodontal therapy, and implant site preparation with increased accuracy and minimal discomfort.
Benefits of Piezosurgery:
Accuracy - Hard tissue 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 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, swelling, and reduced pain.
Healing Time - Healing time is accelerated when piezosurgery technology is used. Not only will you heal faster than with traditional surgery, but you will experience minimal post-operative discomfort.
Safety - Piezosurgery techniques are extremely safe.
This latest advancement in surgical procedures adds additional accuracy and safety to your procedure.
Utilizing controlled, ultrasonic microvibrations, Doctors Farber & Chondrogiannis, your Long Island Periodontists, can reduce bone down to microscopic levels without generating damaging heat and without injuring adjacent soft tissue – something that traditional dental surgery devices cannot accomplish.
