The word "piezo" comes from the Greek word "pressure".
Jacque and Pierre Curie in 1880 were the first to observe the possibility of ultrasound on the bone. Electric current when passing through ceramic materials and crystals creates reciprocating movements of high frequency. This phenomenon was defined as piezoelectricity .
The micro-vibrations created by the piezoelectric effect during the passage of electricity through ceramics and crystals cause distortion with ultrasonic frequency. The vibrations are amplified and transferred to one end and with the pressure of this in the bone a cavitation of the surface is created.
Vercelloti first introduced the technique of piezosurgery in 1988, based on the already existing technology of ultrasound devices.
When to use piezosurgery:
The piezoelectric cutting system offers tissue relaxation for clean cutting and better recovery: Minimizes the risk of soft tissue damage and accuracy in all conventional treatments.
The patient's postoperative symptoms are much better than in conventional surgery, where drills and bone cutters are used, tools that are much more aggressive.
In our office we use a modern piezoelectric cutting system Implant Center (Acteon Group).
