We particularly consider extracting wisdom teeth for different reasons like bad positioning, cavities, or abscesses that need to be extracted.
Our surgery experience developed in over 20 years of experience allows us to ensure a post-operative follow up with minimal discomfort for the patient. With adequate anaesthesia in the area, extraction becomes absolutely painless and only some light swelling will bother the patient in the first days following the intervention.
In the areas where sensitive structures, like the lower alveolar nerve, are in close contact with the tooth to be extracted, we use the piezoelectric scalpel which, acting with ultrasound, prevents nerve structures from being damaged.
PIEZOELECTRIC SCALPELPiezoelectric surgery is nothing more than a scalpel that uses the physical principle of waves and ultrasound that cuts the bone with micrometric precision, preserving the neighbouring soft tissue, and therefore allows for less bleeding and quicker healing with less chance of hematoma and less postoperative pain.
Applications of piezoelectric surgery in dentistry are diverse and have truly excellent results. It can
APICAL RESECTION AND RETRO FILLING
Root canal treatment is performed by eradicating the necrotic tissue around the root canal. You can find only one relatively straight canal, like for example in the incisors, or three or four canals in molars with much more complex morphologies that aren’t always predictable. During therapy we manage to prepare the main canals, but at times the very thin secondary canals or branches in the apical area of the tooth prevent is from filling hermetically. This can lead to the tooth not healing. In this case, you must intervene by sectioning ⅔ mm of the root tip and applying a filling at the canal entrance. To reach the tooth’s tip, you have to remove a small amount of bone from the apical area and free the tooth in part. In presence of nervous or vascular structures, we proceed with the held of a piezoelectric scalpel which preserves and doesn’t damage such structures.
