Sometimes our periodontist may need to modify the shape of part of your jawbone in order to prepare it for a dental implant. Traditional dental equipment lacks precision and often causes damage to the areas around the treatment area. Even with the greatest level of skill and care, some tissue and bone loss occurs with traditional tools.
We are pleased to offer Piezosurgery® technology at the office of Dr. Akram Rafla. The Piezosurgery system utilizes ultrasonic micro-vibrations to cut bone without damaging the surrounding tissues. With this technology, Dr. Akram Rafla is able to perform a wide range of services with significantly better outcomes. These services include extractions, crown lengthening, periodontal therapy, and implant-site preparation. Patients experience less swelling, improved healing time, and less postoperative pains, and they report that Piezosurgery is much more comfortable than our traditional tools.
Piezosurgery has helped us improve our dental services at Akram E. Rafla, DMD, PC. If you have questions about how we use Piezosurgery in Worcester, Massachusetts, please contact our team today. We are happy to answer your questions and schedule your next appointment with Dr. Akram Rafla. Thank you for choosing us for your periodontal and oral surgery needs. We are eager to give you a reason to smile during your next appointment!
