Periodontal Microsurgery

June 13, 2017

Microsurgery refers to non-invasive surgical procedures performed using the surgical microscope. The surgical microscope has revolutionized the practice and delivery of care in dentistry.  Like all surgical specialties, periodontal surgery relies heavily on visualization. Enhanced visualization and magnification afforded by the surgical microscope, and the use of finer instruments in periodontal microsurgery, result in a less invasive procedure, less trauma to the patient and therefore more successful clinical results. In addition, the surgical microscope enables the surgeon to sit upright while performing surgery. This improved posture results in the surgeon having much less fatigue during surgery. This in turn allows better delivery of care to his/her patients.
