Comparative evaluation of crestal bone loss around dental implants in implant osteotomy sites prepared by piezoelectric inserts versus conventional twist drills: Two case reports

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Soumya Sharma, Dr. Mayur Kaushik and Dr. Sameer Ahmed
ABSTRACT:Osseointegration refers to the connection between living bone and the surface of an implanted device that bears functional load. The Piezosurgery device, as compared to rotating instruments, promotes improved wound healing and reduces the occurrence of microfractures and smear layer. In this case report, the objective was to investigate the impact of using a piezoelectric device for preparing the osteotomy site on the loss of crestal bone around dental implants. Two patients, both having a single missing tooth in the posterior region of the lower jaw, were chosen for the study. In one patient, the osteotomy site was prepared using Piezosurgery, while in the other patient, the conventional physiodispenser was used, followed by the placement of ani-Fix® implant. After a period of 6 months following the implant placement, an evaluation was conducted using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) to measure crestal bone loss. It was observed that the osteotomy site prepared with the piezoelectric device exhibited a reduced amount of crestal bone loss. Therefore, the findings of this study suggest that the utilization of Piezoelectric inserts for osteotomy preparation can effectively decrease crestal bone loss around implants, thereby enhancing peri-implant success.
