Piezoelectric Surgical Technology
Piezoelectric technology has become the treatment of choice for delicate surgical bone grafting procedures. Periodontists are using this innovative technology in lieu of the drill to make extremely precise and gentle incisions into bone. The Piezotome essentially vibrates at a high frequency while using sterile saline to cool the surgical site. This technology is the safest means in which to prepare bone grafts and sites for dental implants as it is will not injure soft tissues such as gum and nerves.
