Microsurgery Q & A

What is microsurgery?

The approach utilizes a surgical microscope that allows her to see up to 26 times greater than with the naked eye alone. She also performs her procedures with extremely small instruments that provide a level of accuracy traditional dental tools cannot.

Her extensive training and ongoing professional development are part of her commitment to giving patients the best outcome and experience possible.

What are the advantages of Microsurgery?

Dental microsurgery offers a number of benefits over traditional techniques:


Periodontal procedures often deal with delicate and complex structures. With microsurgery, Dr. Prokopets can make slight variations in the placement of incisions, grafts, and implants. The microscope allows her to provide more precise care and see greater detail. The result is a more effective, accurate and naturally esthetic treatment.

Aesthetic appeal

All procedures must have aesthetic considerations. Even with procedures involving recession, which is bone loss where tissue or gingival grafting is to protect the bone from further loss, improvement of appearance is also important. The aesthetics of the procedure depend on meticulously sculpted grafts that match the natural gum line. Dental microsurgery can help you achieve the natural result you are looking for. Using the microsurgery technique, Dr. Prokopets is able to place smaller sutures in her procedures (as fine as a human hair), which creates a more natural result.


Dr. Prokopets uses smaller instruments and more accurate movements during her procedures. This should make your results and recovery better even during extended treatments.


Dental microsurgery procedures are less invasive. Your recovery should be shorter, and you should have less tenderness because of the conservative nature of the procedures.

What can patients expect with Microsurgery?

While every patient and procedure is different, patients who have dental microsurgery benefit from some of the same experiences:

  • During treatment, Dr. Prokopets will view the gums and teeth at an extremely high level of detail that isn’t available in traditional procedures.
  • This clarity will permit Dr. Prokopets to work efficiently and accurately.
  • The techniques that Dr. Prokopets uses will be gentler and more accurate as a result, both the results and the method will be better for patients.

Regardless of whether you require bone grafting, want to restore your teeth with dental implants, or if you could benefit from a deep cleaning treatment that uses dental microsurgery, Dr. Prokopets provides you with a comfortable, exact, and non-invasive experience.
