Making Dental Surgery Truly Modern
While tooth extractions are not always the most comfortable experience for patients, there are ways to better ensure your comfort along the way. Of course, that’s not the only function the advanced Piezotome CUBE device offers our team at The Dental Implant Institute. If you are curious about how this new to this technology might enhance your care or if you have an upcoming tooth extraction scheduled with us, take a moment to learn more the device yourself by reviewing below or call our office in order to better set expectations!
What is Piezotome Technology?
The Piezotome CUBE device is an advanced form of dental technology that works to make certain dental treatments easier to complete and improve their outcomes. It’s quickly becoming one of the most trusted pieces of equipment used by oral surgeons, especially on treatments involving oral bone tissue.
Whether precise areas of bone need to be modified or removed, the process becomes more comfortable when using the Piezotome CUBE device, especially compared to traditional dental instruments.
The two most common treatments this device is used for include tooth extractions and preparation for dental implants. During intra-operative phases of care, (or during the actual procedure), the device selectively cuts away fibers that hold the tooth in bone and preserves the bone.
To accomplish this, the device regulates pressure using its proprietary Newtron® technology. In layman’s terms, this sophisticated hardware alternates between low and high intensity to ensure all healthy bone and soft tissue is maintained. Not only can we at The Dental Implant Institute better preserve your existing oral structures, but we can also improve the healing of these areas dramatically compared to traditional methods.
How Does It Benefit Patients?
One of the most notable benefits is it removes the need for forceps and excessive force during extractions, helping to keep the surrounding bone as whole and healthy as possible (and therefore better suited to receive a dental implant.) This is especially important if the dentist intends to place a dental implant immediately, a common practice for those looking to replace teeth as soon as their previous ones have been extracted. Even so, better conservation of the bone allows for a better long-term outcome of implant treatment.
Additionally, the Piezotome CUBE helps patients:
- Facilitate faster recovery
- Lessen swelling following surgery
- Reduce the need for post-op prescription painkillers
- Minimize trauma of the surrounding bone and gums
- Gain a far more comfortable dental experience
