Piezocision Assisted Orthodontics experiences

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: bretto  (7 years ago)
A little about my situation - I am currently living abroad in South America and would like to have my dental procedures completed by the time I go back home in about a year. I have an overbite and some alignment issues but nothing too major as far as I know.

I have had two consultations with what I would consider ‘standard’ orthodontists. They recommended regular braces with a treatment time of 12-14mths in the very best case. Then just this morning I had a consultation at a more exclusive orthodontist who is also an international lecturer, member of American Association of Orthodontists and somewhat of a well known celebrity in the local area.

Due to the limited time period I am going to be here, he has recommended a new technique developed at Boston University called Piezocision. This will bring the treatment time down to 6-8mths. From what I understand, the regular self litigating braces are installed, then a week later a special Piezo tool is used to cut into the gums between each tooth, doing something which results in faster tooth movement.

"Piezocision assisted Orthodontics is a recently introduced, minimally invasive procedure, combining micro incisions with selective tunnelling that allows hard or soft tissue grafting and piezoelectric incisions. This novel approach leads to short orthodontic treatment time, minimal discomfort, and great patient acceptance, as well as stronger periodontium."

Apparently this Orthodontist is the first person in the country to be certified doing this procedure from Boston University. He has done 8 patients so far and 2 are successfully completed, the others come back every 2 weeks for adjustments.

Has anyone heard of this technique before? Any thoughts? If I could get the braces part done within 6-8mths, it would give me time after to do a few others things I need like a crown, whitening and maybe some bonding (?) to fix the chips etc.

Thankyou!

Why are you in such a rush that you want to do it this way? Rushing orthodontics is never a good idea, and has side effects like root resorption. You think nothing ever goes wrong in surgical intervention?

Be honest with yourself. Are you considering this to save money, without regard to other factors?

Piezocision, developed by Dr. Serge Dibart from Boston University, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure aimed at accelerating orthodontic tooth movement by increasing the rate of bone remodeling that allows tooth movement. It is an innovative and beneficial way of accelerating orthodontic movement. I just attended a course given by Dr. Dibart. It does NOT cause root resorption and is not simply "rushing tooth movement." It creates rapid cell turnover in the bone, which then allows faster tooth movement without harmful effects.

First Wilkodontics, now imitators like this. Surgical interventions, all of them. And never any complications with surgical interventions? You are a better surgeon than me. Guess I am just more patient. I will treat my own wife orthodontically soon. I would rather have slower movement, and avoid the surgical intervention. Don't understand why everyone is in such a damn hurry these days.

I'm the original poster and I have had my braces off for over two year now. It went really well back then and is still fine.
