AUTHOR(S): Jaishree Tukaram Kshirsagar, Prem kumar K, Yashodha SR, Nirmmal Maria T
Periodontitis is one of the chronic inflammatory disease of the tooth-supporting structures. The treatment of periodontitis is based on the removal of local factors and restoration of the bony architecture. Traditionally, manual or motor driven instrument are used to perform osseous surgery, but both have their own advantage and disadvantages. Recently, a novel surgical approach using the piezoelectric device is introduced in the field of periodontology and oral implantology.The piezosurgical device provides extreme precision on micrometric cutting, safety as well as great control on the surgical site and the unit allowing one to selectively section the mineralized bone structures. Moreover, the device causes minimal bleeding during and after the operative procedure and the healing process is shorter.
