Abstract

Piezosurgery is being applied increasingly in oral surgery and implantology. The main advantages of this technique are precise and selective cuttings, the avoidance of thermal damage, and the preservation of soft-tissue structures. Through the application of piezoelectric surgery, implant-site preparation, bone grafting, sinus-floor elevation, ridge splitting or the lateralization of the inferior alveolar nerve are very technically feasible.

This clinical overview gives a summary of the current literature and outlines the advantages and disadvantages of piezoelectric bone surgery in oral and implant surgery. Overall, piezoelectric surgery is superior to other methods that utilize mechanical instruments. Handling of delicate or compromised hard- and soft-tissue conditions can be performed with less risk for the patient. With respect to current and future innovative surgical concepts, piezoelectric surgery offers a wide range of new possibilities to perform customized and minimally invasive osteotomies
