The West Wind Standard of Care
Not all dentists are the same.
Some rely on proven but not always updated techniques, providing the same experience they have for decades.
Others focus on and invest in innovation, providing an updated experience with the latest dental technologies.
At West Wind Dental, we are committed to doing better for our patients. We utilize the latest technology and training. We provide a better experience and outcome. We do all we can to ensure faster healing and safer procedures
We are focused on offering the West Wind Standard of Care.
Our commitment is to:

- Emphasize patient comforts, faster healing, and better outcomes
- Provide the best dental care in our community
In this series, let us tell you about the special equipment and technology we use in the West Wind Standard of Care (you won’t find them everywhere!).
PIEZO Surgical Drill
We invested in the PIEZO surgical drill to help us provide the safest and most accurate dental surgery.
What’s unique about this drill is that it will prevent damage to soft tissue, and will only cut bone surfaces.
It is used for any kind of surgery, whether it’s implant surgery or tooth extraction. It is ideal if you’re dealing with bone and important anatomy like the maxillary sinus or IAN nerve that you don’t want injured. Damage to these structures may create numbness for long periods of time or induce long term sinus problems.
It will selectively cut bone without much pressure. It will not cut gum tissue. It’s very safe, a much safer type of bone surgery instrument than a traditional surgical drill, which really doesn’t differentiate between hard and soft tissue, it’s all about how much pressure you put on it.
This particular piece of equipment allows us to be safer, more predictable, and very effective.
