Implant Dentistry Day Three

Using this advanced technology will make your dental surgery more effective and comfortable for you.

As they say, sadly, 'all good things must come to an end' and certainly this conference and my stay in Lugano has come to an end.

Day 3 has been a shorter one, packed with back to back short sessions by clinicians showing the use of 'Ultrasonic Bone Surgery' using the piezoelectric machine in all different aspects of Oral, Periodontal and Maxillofacial surgery. I will not go into all technical details, but I can definitely say that the way we will do bone surgery from now on, will be different than what has been done so far, providing we have available this great machine that has all the advantages mentioned so far.

The piezosurgery system uses ultrasound waves to cut bone without damaging soft tissue. Whereas traditional methods of bone-cutting, such as drills and burs, result in some tissue and bone loss regardless of the dentist’s precision, piezosurgery technology eliminates this risk. This means I am able to perform procedures such as crown lengthening, ridge expansion, periodontal therapy, and implant site preparation with increased accuracy and minimal discomfort.

The fact that its so precise and does not cut soft tissues, the possibilities are endless. I can now shape the bone better, go in between teeth without risking the health of the teeth, the inserts are so fine. The indications and possibilities of use are just greater than I thought! I feel privileged to have this machine at our office and have it at my disposal for treating my patients.

So, in conclusion, it has been a great trip and learning experience, tiring, but energizing and inspiring to come on Monday morning and share all of this with my fellow colleagues at Dentistry on Dundas.
