Patients who need dental implants or gum surgery can now undergo a procedure known as Piezosurgery, which uses sound waves to get through bone and clean out periodontal disease.
This treatment requires minimal anesthesia since most discomfort would usually result from cutting the gum tissue with a scalpel. Since there’s no cutting, you’re also less likely to experience bleeding, swelling and post-treatment discomfort. The surrounding tissue remains intact, so the recovery is quick.
In addition to its bodily benefits, Piezosurgery is considered more eco-friendly than other procedures. It eliminates the need for stitches and biohazardous materials. And because compressed sound waves at the rate of 60,000 times per second don’t generate any heat, no energy is wasted or emitted into the air.
Piezosurgery is fairly new, so if you are interested in this option, you may need to seek out a periodontist who specializes in gum-related procedures.
