MONROE, Conn. (PRWEB) December 21, 2017

Dr. Richard Amato, experienced periodontist in Monroe, CT, is encouraging patients in Fairfield and New Haven Connecticut who are in need of bone grafting or dental implants to consider the benefits of Piezosurgery®. Focusing on a gentle approach to dental treatments, Dr. Amato offers patients multiple minimally invasive options for care including Piezosurgery, laser therapy, and the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Piezosurgery technology allows Dr. Amato to gently reshape bone tissue without harming soft tissues like the gums or sinus membrane.

Piezosurgery is a state-of-the-art technology that uses ultrasonic micro-vibrations that cut through bone without damaging surrounding soft tissue. This technology gives Dr. Amato the ability to perform treatments like a sinus lift or dental extraction with minimal discomfort and chance of damage. Traditional bone surgery involves using drills and burs to cut bone, but can result in the loss of soft and hard tissue. Piezosurgery can be used for a variety of procedures, including:

  • Dental implant preparation
  • Sinus lifts
  • Tooth extractions
  • Bone Grafts
  • Crown lengthening
  • Periodontal therapy

For those patients needing dental implants in the upper back molar region, a sinus lift may be recommended. When jaw bone deterioration occurs at this site, the sinus cavity fills the space left by the receding bone. Dr. Amato utilizes Piezosurgery to gently cut through the bone tissue without damaging the fragile sinus membrane. This allows him to safely lift the sinus cavity and reinforce the area with a bone grafting procedure.

“What used to be a stressful, surgical visit, is now a simplified series of steps following a well-established protocol to ensure an outstanding result,” said Dr. Amato on dental implant surgery.
