Maxillofacial, Osteotomy Clinical Trial
Evaluation of Using Piezoelectric Device Versus Conventional Saw for Osteotomy in Maxillary Orthognathic Surgery
Piezo-surgery was ﬁrst used in oral and maxillofacial surgery in 2001 by Vercellotti and colleagues to simplify maxillary sinus surgery by avoiding perforation of the schneiderian membrane. Later on ultrasonic bone cutting has been used in orthognathic procedures, extraction of impacted third molars , cyst enucleation, implant site preparation, temporomandibular join surgery , corticotomy-facilitated orthodontics, and head and neck oncological and reconstructive surgeries.
