LONGVIEW, Texas, Dec. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Pinnacle Implants & Periodontics' dual board-certified periodontist
Many experience bone loss due to untreated periodontal disease, medical conditions or facial trauma. Those who have a tooth extracted or lost may begin to notice a thinning jaw bone that can eventually affect their facial shape and risk the loss of surrounding teeth as well. If the lost natural tooth root is not replaced with a dental implant, the jawbone will inevitably begin to degrade.
In order to replace lost bone mass, experienced clinicians like Dr. Kovacs are able to add new bone material, or grafts, to the affected area and offer renewed support and proper structure. Piezosurgery is one of the most minimally invasive and technologically advanced methods to accurately perform bone grafts. Using ultrasonic micro-vibrations, the Piezosurgery equipment rapidly works its way through bone material without harm to the surrounding areas.
Bone grafting can be necessary prior to dental implant placement if a patient's jawbone cannot support the dental implant posts that "anchor" the implant in the mouth. Without enough bone density, the posts cannot fuse with the bone, which could leave them unstable. Using Piezosurgery protocols, Dr. Kovacs and his trained team can modify the jawbone to allow acceptance of dental implants. When the jawbone is properly prepared, dental implant success rates hover in the 98th percentile range, according to statistics culled by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
Piezosurgery can also improve how accurate and minimally invasive other treatments are including crown lengthening, periodontal therapy and tooth extractions. During these procedures the advanced Piezosurgery technology, precisely used by Dr. Kovacs, is utilized to achieve excellent outcomes.
Piezosurgery is performed at either of Dr. Kovacs' locations, under customized levels of numbing or anesthetics. Initial appointments to discuss bone grafting treatment or the placement of dental implants in Longview or Texarkana, TX, can be made by contacting Pinnacle Implants & Periodontics at 903-758-3329.
