Piezosurgery in periodontics: A new paradigm for traditional approaches: A review
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Aishwarya Pande, Dr. Poonam Rai and Dr. Devanand Shetty
ABSTRACT:Piezosurgery is a new method that uses piezoelectric ultrasonic vibrations to perform precise and safe osteotomies. It was first discovered by Tomaso Vercelotti to overcome the limitations of traditional instruments in oral bone surgery. Its use was first introduced in the field of preprosthetic surgery alveolar crest expansion and sinus grafting procedures. It is a favorable, scrupulous, and soft tissue sparing system for bone cutting based on low frequency ultrasonic microvibrations. The absence of macrovibration makes the instrument more feasible and allows greater intraoperative control with increase in cutting safety in the more difficult anatomical cutting zone. This article focuses on the broad range of applications of this novel technique in periodontology.
