PURPOSE Piezoelectric surgery (PES) uses a modulated ultrasonic frequency that permits highly precise and safe hard tissue cutting. A retrospective study on a series of spiral family implants inserted with or without PES split crest was performed to verify if implants inserted into crests split using PES have a comparable outcome to those inserted into unsplit bone. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the period from May 2004 to November 2007, 86 patients (55 women and 31 men, median age 53 yrs) were… CONTINUE READING
