Paper Title:
Comparison of New Bone Formation and Osteotomy Speed in the Rabbit Mandible Using Piezoelectric Surgery and Conventional Burs
  Abstract

We compared the effect of osteotomies performed using piezoelectric surgery (Piezosurgery®) and the conventional bur method on new bone formation in the rabbit mandible, focusing on light-microscopy observations of the early healing process after 1, 2, and 4 weeks. The time required to perform the osteotomy was also compared. We showed that piezoelectric surgery and the conventional bur method had no marked difference on early bone healing, although the osteotomy time was shorter with the conventional bur method than with Piezosurgery. Because the instrument used in Piezosurgery is sharp and more controllable, piezoelectric surgery should be more useful for delicate surgery, such as maxillary sinus lifting and segmental osteotomies, with the fewest complications.
