The use of various hard tissue cutting instruments like micromotors and carbide burs pose a certain disadvantage such as excessive heat generation, smear layer formation, difficulty in controlling the bleeding of the operating field, etc. These disadvantages not only increase the intraoperative time but also affects the overall prognosis of the treatment. At present, the use of power ultrasonics has gained popularity over conventional techniques for procedures involving hard tissues. It overcomes the various disadvantages of traditional instruments as well as provides increased precision, protection of both soft and hard tissues as well as hastens the healing after osseous surgeries. The present review article aims to highlight the impact created by the piezoelectric devices in various dental procedures, specifically periodontal and implant related therapies, its mechanism of action and the advantages over conventional osseous surgeries.
