Dr. Cole utilizes advanced technology to make your dental surgery more effective and comfortable for you.
What is Piezosurgery?
The piezosurgery system uses ultrasonic 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 greatly reduces this trauma. This means Dr. Cole is able to perform procedures such as tooth extractions, crown lengthening, ridge expansion and regeneration, 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 risk of damaging this soft tissue, but with piezosurgery, the system is so accurate and specific to the surgery site that this risk is eliminated.
Comfort – Because the piezosurgical instrument is less traumatic to the hard and soft tissues, the procedures completed with piezosurgery technology result in minimal bleeding and 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 pain or discomfort.
Safety – Piezosurgery techniques are extremely safe. Let Dr. Cole know if you have a pacemaker and/or defibrillator as the ultrasonic waves can influence the function of these devices.
