Dr. Novack employs the most advanced technology to improve the effectiveness, comfort and safety of your periodontal and implant surgical care.
What is Piezosurgery?
Piezosurgery involves directing ultrasonic waves to precisely cut bone (or teeth) without damaging soft tissue (blood vessels, nerves, gums, etc.). Piezosurgery technology has enabled Dr. Novack to perform procedures such as tooth extractions, crown lengthening, ridge expansion, periodontal therapy, sinus bone grafting and implant site preparation with an unparalleled level of accuracy, reduced risk, faster healing and minimal patient discomfort.
Benefits of Piezosurgery:
Accuracy- Bone (hard tissue) is surrounded by soft tissue including, nerves, blood vessels and sinus membranes. There are far greater risks of damaging these delicate tissues when employing traditional surgical techniques. With piezosurgery, the improved accuracy translates into reduced surgical risks and greater patient safety.
Comfort- Procedures performed with piezosurgery technology are routinely associated with reduced bleeding, swelling, and perhaps most importantly, reduced pain.
Healing Time- Piezosurgery technology accelerates healing. Not merely will you heal faster than with traditional surgical approaches, but you will be able to return to work and enjoy life sooner.
Safety-Piezosurgery technology has been well documented and has an excellent safety record.
