An increasing number of adult patients are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smile or their masticatory function. One of the biggest challenges an adult orthodontic patient faces is the time spent wearing brackets because time and esthetics have become increasingly important in this time. Over the years, several surgical techniques have been developed to address this issue and reduce overall treatment time. Although very effective, these techniques have proven to be quite invasive. A new, minimally invasive surgical procedure [piezocision] is presented in this case report that combines microincisions and localized piezoelectric surgery to achieve similar results rapidly and with minimal trauma.
