“Clinical use of the Piezotome in Endodontic Surgery"
Endodontists have used ultrasonics both orthograde and surgically for decades but there has been reluctance amongst endodontists to incorporate the next iteration, the Piezotome, into our routine surgical armamentarium. The piezotome has several advantages over “traditional” ablation osteotomy including less bone damage, better vision, better hemostasis and even recycling the bone as an autologous graft, which in turn offers faster bone healing and improved healed contours. This presentation will demonstrate the use of a piezotome in endodontic surgery and show patient outcomes over several years of clinical experience.

- describe the key advantages of using the piezotome in endodontic surgery
- identify cases which will be appropriate for piezotome use in endodontic surgery
- learn techniques of trap door osteotomy, storage and replantation of an autologous graft as well as instruments, materials and media for use with the piezotome
