Note We have 2 laser systems. Nd:YAG, which is specifically designed for treatment of periodontitis and implant bone loss (peri-implantitis) and a diode laser, designed for biopsies and gum tissue contouring (note hyperlink Nd:YAG to LANAP).
Accelerated Orthodontics Piezocision®
We are pleased to implement a new treatment method for adults who want to improve their smiles with orthodontics. Typically this took 1-2 years whether using traditional braces (wires and brackets on teeth) or Invisalign®(clear plastic trays to move teeth).
We are the leader in this technique in the region. The method accelerates tooth movement up to 50%. Recent studies from Belgium and other sites around the world validated and supported the original evidence and technique from Boston University, indicating this is a future increasing trend.
Piezocision® is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed by one of our periodontists resulting in activation and temporary softening of the jawbone. This allows teeth to move more rapidly. The incisions are small cuts in the gum between the teeth that generally don’t need suturing (stitches). After the cuts are made, the periodontist uses specialized ultrasonic instruments to activate the underlying bone. Typically people having the procedure take over-the-counter pain medication for a couple of days afterward, do not have swelling and return to normal lives immediately. A dentist or orthodontist manages the tooth movement, while we manage the gum and jawbone reactions.
The increased plasticity effect of bone lasts about 3 months, while the teeth are quickly moved. If more movement is necessary, the procedure can be repeated. Afterward, bone goes back to normal and teeth are straight and solid. This method reduces possible damage to teeth during movement, does not affect periodontal support and can be combined with other procedures to correct gum recession and even increase bone support.
We are very enthusiastic about this technique and our first patients include several office team members and Dr.Ganeles. If you have always wanted to improve the alignment of your teeth but didn’t want to invest years doing it, this might be the answer. Ask us if you are interested
