Losing a tooth is hard for everyone. Missing teeth can make it difficult to eat and can cause discomfort in various situation. Some common solutions to replace missing tooth are not always satisfactory remedies. In such a case dental implants may be a solution.
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone gums. Once in place, it allows the dentist to mount a replacement tooth onto it. The material used in most of the cases is titanium which is well accepted by a living organism.
In dentistry and oral surgery we use lasers with different wavelengths. There are numerous advantages to use them, especially in a surgery in a part of the body which has high blood supply. The Diode Soft Lasers are members of the new generation of lasers that emerged in the last couple of years. They have became a mobile, compact, efficient and reliable piece of surgical equipment over the years. After a periodontitis treatment they have a bactericidal and anti-inflammation effect. Using the laser in a surgery has other benefits like speeding up wound healing. It is widely accepted by professionals that the laser generated heat is beneficial for dental and oral surgery treatment since it reduces germ numbers.
This ultrasound device works by resonating the bones gently (like a dental plaque treatment) which makes it a useful device to perform a complicated surgery such as removing broken roots or an implantation. It’s great advantage is that due to it’s high precision which guarantees that no excess bone is removed. The bone is not fractured, rather chipped away by small amounts and this can be used for filling other areas (mixed with bone replacement materials) where a bone need is present for example. This allows implantation in areas where previously there was not enough bone tissue for an implant.
A surgery performed by a Piezo equipment results in minimal blood loss therefore it reduces post surgery pains and accelerates healing. This allows further procedures to be started earlier. With the help of the device the soft tissues will remain intact giving an advantage to a procedure where the place of the surgery is close to nerves, blood vessels or in case a sinus lift has to be performed. With this method the chance of complications are reduced.
