What is periodontal decortication?
The Piezocision treatment is nothing but periodontal decortication, i.e. an ultrasound procedure using the orthodontic method, which is equal to the effectiveness of the orthodontic appliance. Its main advantage is that you do not have to wait long for the desired effects of treatment.
In the course of periodontal dehydration, the dentist cuts the cortical bone of the alveolar processes, which stimulates the spongy bone to change. In other words, the Piezocision treatment motivates the human body to start the process of self-restoration and self-regeneration.
The surgeon, using the Piezocision procedure, uses a specialized Piezotome device, which consists of a handle attached to the central unit. The handle can also be equipped with 6 different types of treatment tips for ultrasonic pre-implant surgery.
Before the Piezocision procedure takes place, the surgeon puts a special device on the patient's teeth and then performs parodontaneous decortication. This is to increase the rate of teeth moving to the desired locations in the jaws and to obtain the right effect of orthodontic treatment. After the procedure, the teeth can easily be moved using a traditional fixed or metal apparatus or an invisible Invisalign device
Advantages of periodontal decortication treatment
Using the ultrasound method of periodontal dehydration, the surgeon focuses solely on the cutting of mineralized hard tissues. During the treatment delicate soft tissues or blood vessels are not damaged and damaged. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and is not bloody.
Piezocision is recommended for people with small curvatures, as well as for those who are affected by large malocclusion, such as skeletal open bite or narrowing of the neck. In most cases, it brings very good results in a short time. It avoids the need to extract teeth and there is no age limit for its implementation. The treatment can be carried out after applying the lingual or orthodontic apparatus.
