Guest: Dr. Todd Engel Release Date: 12/18/2023
The advantage of piezo-surgery is multi-faceted. It's ideal for minimizing patient discomfort following virtually all oral surgery procedures. It many cases it obviates the need to create a surgical flap, helps protect adjacent teeth and restorations during extractions, precisely cuts hard tissue while precluding injury to soft tissue. When cutting, it produces negligible heat which is critical in maintaining vitality of adjacent tissue. And these are just a few of the major advantages of using piezo technology in oral surgery and periodontics. To tell us all about it is our guest Dr. Todd Engel. Dr. Engel has extensive experience in Dental Implants, CT Guided Surgical Design, and Complex Treatment Planning as well as Full Mouth Rehabilitation. He established the Engel Institute, located in Charlotte, NC, which focuses on live patient education with topics ranging from implant placement, grafting, and full arch conversion surgery. The Institute's implant courses have been taught across US and its alumni consists of well over 12,000 dental professionals.
