Drs. Pollack, Odrich and Sarmiento utilize advanced technology to make your dental surgery more effective and comfortable for you.
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 Drs. Pollack, Odrich and Sarmiento 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 – Teeth and bone are surrounded by soft tissues including arteries, nerves, and sinus membranes. In traditional surgery, there is greater risk of damaging this precious tissue, but with piezosurgery, the system is so accurate and does not directly cut soft tissues that this risk is greatly reduced.
Comfort – If you fear the trauma associated with drills and burs, piezosurgery eliminates this problem as it causes minimal trauma to the underlying bone. Procedures completed with piezosurgery technology result in minimal collateral damage and therefore, 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 less post-operative pain or discomfort.
Safety – Piezosurgery techniques are extremely safe.
