Expert Answer:

Clinical benefits  of Piezoelectric bone surgery
 
1.
Modulated piezoelectric signal allows for smooth cut (geometrical) in mineralized bone, while minimizing the risk to soft tissue (such as nerves, blood vessels, schneiderian membrane and dura mater.
 
2.
Better visualization of surgical field:
Irrigation and cavitation effects provide optimal visibility of the operative site, removes bone debris and avoids temperature rise liable to cause tissue degradation. The LED handpiece provides the enhanced vision at the operative site.
 
3. Favorable bone healing
Narrow kerf and smooth cuts in the presence of irrigation result in less risk of necrosis or bone trauma, allowing faster bone healing.
 
4. Complimentary technology
The Piezoelectric system is a complimentary technology to the motorized cutting instruments which:
  • May be difficult to control
  • May be dangerous to soft tissue anatomy
  • May have potential for necrotic bone due to heat build up
  • Can be difficult to make intricate, non linear or fine cuts
  • Have potential for delayed healing due to large irregular kerf
  • Cannot be used in blind spaces
