Utilizing Ultrasonic Technology for Implant Site Preparation

November 17 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

$795

Modern technology has changed the dynamic of today’s dental practice. Procedures such as implant site

enhancement have traditionally been referred to specialists because of the higher associated risk and the difficulty

of technique involved. With the introduction of piezo surgery technology, clinicians can now perform those same

procedures with an increased margin of safety and even greater surgical precision. Piezo surgery technology

enables clinicians to selectively cut only hard tissue (e.g. bone) avoiding damage to important anatomic soft tissue

structures (e.g. nerves, gingiva, sinus membranes). These benefits are paramount to risk management, simplifying

surgical techniques, alleviating patient apprehension and allowing dentists to offer both surgical steps of implant site

preparation and implant surgery in their office, instead of referring the patient out. This technology has been proven

to generate a significant return on investment for the modern implant practice.

Points of Discussion:

• Explanation of how piezo surgery technology selectively cuts hard tissue while leaving soft tissue intact

• Comparison of safety and precision of piezo surgery techniques to conventional surgical methods

• Review of specific applications in implant dentistry

• Surgical step-by-step techniques for implant site preparation utilizing piezo surgery, including:

o Atraumatic extractions

o Maxillary sinus augmentation

o Alveolar ridge expansion utilizing the “Ridge Split” technique

• Criteria for case selection to minimize risk and failure

• Evaluating the return on investment (ROI) of piezo surgery in the modern implant practice

Hands-On Training:

Participants will have the opportunity to operate the piezo surgery unit and perform various bone cutting exercises to

experience the tactile feedback of the handpiece, ease of operation, and surgical precision of piezo surgery. Also, each

participant will perform simulated access preparation to reach a thin and fragile membrane similar to the sinus

membrane.
