Healthy teeth depend on healthy bone structure to hold them firmly in place. Sometimes surgery is needed to restore bone health. When Dr. I. Stephen Brown operates on bone, he uses the most advanced, least invasive technology available. Piezosurgery uses ultrasonic motion to reshape bone without damaging adjacent tissues. The procedure is safe, effective, and greatly lessens discomfort and recovery time.
How Piezosurgery works
The Piezosurgery system uses non-conventional cutting methods. The ultrasonic microvibrations cleanly cut through the hardest bone without any damage to collateral tissues. 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.
