TECHNOLOGY AND PERFORMANCE

Thanks to its right balance between power and precision and the high-quality surgical inserts, PIEZOSURGERY® flex offers the best surgical outcome and makes interventions possible which are extremely challenging with traditional tools.

DESIGNED TO OPEN A NEW ERA IN BONE SURGERY

PIEZOSURGERY® opened a new era of bone surgery thanks to ultrasonic micro-vibrations.

INTRAOPERATIVE ADVANTAGES

  • Selective cut          

micro-vibrations generate an effective cutting action on mineralized tissue, reducing the risk of soft tissue damage

  • Micrometric cut

micro-vibrations allow perfect control of the cutting action, resulting in maximum precision and minimal bone sacrifice

  • Cavitation effect

the cavitation effect reduces the risk of bone necrosis and helps create a blood-free field

POSTOPERATIVE BENEFITS

  • Healing                  

ultrasonic micro-vibrations reduce inflammatory cells on the bone surface and promote osteoblast production, promoting quicker healing and an improved postoperative outcome

SCIENTIFIC STUDIES

Comparative studies have demonstrated both the intraoperative advantages and postoperative benefits of the PIEZOSURGERY® device.

osseointegration

The inflammatory cells were more numerous in samples obtained from the drilled sites (Fig. 1). Neo-osteogenesis was quantified by considering the absolute number of osteoblasts per high-power field (mean of 10 fields) in osteo-genetic areas; it was consistently more active in the bone samples from the implant sites prepared using the piezoelectric bone surgery technique (Fig. 2).

postoperative pain

In the group A, the lower post-operative pain highlights the absence of a thermal effect on the surface cut and shows a better healing process.

PIEZOSURGERY® - SCIENTIFICALLY AND CLINICALLY VALIDATED

PIEZOSURGERY® is mectron's original piezoelectric surgical technique, the only one validated by 15 years of scientific publications and research. 

  • Bone Healing

    As bone healing is not disturbed by the PIEZOSURGERY®, but even seems to be improved, this method will have a major influence on new minimally invasive bone surgery techniques with special regards to biomechanics.

     

  • Safety

    Ultrasound osteotomy is a new technical procedure that is advantageous for bone cutting in multiple situations, with minimal to no damage in adjacent soft tissues such as brain, palatal mucosa and the inferior alveolar nerve.

  • Benefits

    The microvibrations allow a selective cut of only mineralized structures without damaging soft tissues. The micrometric vibrations ensure precise cutting action without causing bone necrosis by heating. At the same time the physical phenomenon of cavitations maintains a blood-free site.

  • Precision

    In all patients, piezoelectric surgery allowed for effective, precise, safe, easy and rapid intraoperative managment. In particular, the instrument's precision allowed surgeons to make exact, clean and smooth cuts without any injury to adjacent soft tissue.

  • Ease

    The handling of the piezoelectric device is virtually effortless, requiring very little manual pressure to giude the osteotomies precisely; even curved osteotomies can be easily performed.
