Implants Without Incision –Piezosurgery
at Palm Desert Bittner Dental Clinic
Dental implants are used for a variety of beneficial reasons: for entire teeth replacement, supporting and stabilizing an existing denture and to help move teeth in orthodontia. Often the jawbone must be modified to successfully receive an implant. Piezosurgery is a recently developed system that modifies the jawbone without damaging soft tissue and helps to create the most ideal site to receive the implant.
Cut Bone Without Damaging Soft Tissue
Piezosurgery uses ultrasonic micro-vibrations to cut bone without damaging soft tissue. Developed for use in Oral Surgery, Implantology and Periodontics, this innovative technology allows doctors to perform procedures that were not previously possible.
Less Bone Loss, Less Pain
Traditional methods of bone-cutting (i.e.: drills and burs) can result in some tissue and bone loss, no matter how careful and precise the doctor may be. Piezosurgery eliminates this risk. Instead of drilling, Piezosurgery uses ultrasonic vibrations produced by a special surgical instrument to achieve unparalleled precision and patient comfort.
Piezosurgery Produces Positive Results
Dr. Bittner is able to perform procedures such as extractions, crown lengthening, periodontal therapy, and implant site preparation using Piezosurgery. Leading doctors across the country are achieving consistently positive results using this method. Patients are seeing amazing results with faster healing time, less swelling, and less post-operative pain!
In the past, the success of dental implants was determined by how well the cut, soft tissue would reattach to the bone. Now, success is much more likely to due to this noninvasive method. If this is a procedure you may need to go through, the Bittner Dental Clinic can help.
