Piezosurgery in Philadelphia

Healthy teeth depend on healthy bone structure to hold them firmly in place. Sometimes surgery is needed to restore bone health. When Dr. Stephen Brown operates on bone, he uses the most advanced, least invasive technology available. Piezosurgery uses ultrasonic motion to reshape bone without damaging soft tissue. The procedure is safe, effective, and greatly lessens discomfort and recovery time for the patient.

How Piezosurgery works

The Piezosurgery system uses no scalpel or saw blade. The ultrasonic microvibrations cleanly cut through the hardest bone without affecting the surrounding soft tissue. This means there's no risk of bruising or lacerating gum tissue or damaging blood vessels or nerves. Dr. Brown can reshape bone with precision and create an optimal environment for healing.

This technology is used in a wide variety of surgical procedures including neurosurgery. Piezosurgery makes possible some procedures traditional methods simply could not do. As a periodontist, Dr. Brown uses Piezosurgery for all of the following:

  • Crown lengthening
  • Tooth extraction
  • Stimulating bone growth by making small penetrations in the bone
  • Removing bone fragments for use in grafting
  • Preparing bone for dental implants
  • Internal and crestal sinus lifts

Benefits of Piezosurgery

Dr. Brown is dedicated to bringing in technologies that are easier on the patient and at the same time provide the best possible treatment outcomes. Ultrasonic cutting has revolutionized osseous surgery not only by improving the patient's experience, but by allowing periodontists and other doctors greater precision and decreased risk of error. Piezosurgery is a tried and true solution. Dr. Brown has used it to help hundreds of patients in his Philadelphia practice. Here are some of the benefits Piezosurgery offers over traditional methods of bone surgery.

  • Greater control means more precise cut
  • Minimizes the risk of trauma to soft tissues
  • Procedures are often completed faster
  • Eliminates friction that can overheat tissue
  • Less bleeding
