Piezosurgery® relies upon ultrasonic vibration and is utilized to cut structures in procedures which focus on treating the hard tissue in your mouth, such as teeth and bone. It is often used in combination with laser dentistry. With this technology, soft tissue can remain unharmed during treatments like a tooth extraction, crown lengthening, alveolar ridge expansion, and preparation for dental implants.
If you are considering dental implants, schedule a consultation for Piezosurgery ® with Dr. Jeffrey Kopman and Dr. Harold Kopman. Advantages of Piezosurgery® include:
• Precise incisions of hard tissue
• Reduced noise
• High visibility for Dr. Kopman during procedures
• Minimally invasive cutting for faster healing times
• Not harmful to soft tissue
• Minimal post-operative pain
When Dr. Kopman works with your hard tissue, the procedure can be complicated. This is due to the fact that hard tissue is surrounded by arteries, nerves, and gum tissue that must remain unharmed. Piezosurgery® is accurate and precise, allowing Dr. Kopman to perform delicate surgery with little to no risk of damage to the soft tissue. Visibility is also improved during procedures due to decreased bleeding.
The accuracy of the incisions coupled with minimized bleeding and inflammation deliver faster post-operative healing times.
With Piezosurgery®, bleeding and swelling are significantly reduced. Patients report minimal pain and discomfort after procedures performed with this ultrasonic technology.
Piezosurgery® creates accurate incisions in hard tissue without harming soft tissue. When Dr. Kopman places dental implants, your existing teeth may first need to be extracted. This technology allows us to remove your tooth, preserving the integrity of the socket without damaging gum tissue, nerves, or arteries. If a sinus lift must be performed, you can feel confident that your sinus membrane will remain healthy and intact while Dr. Kopman raises the membrane and adds bone grafts to augment volume.
