Ultrasound has been used for many years in periodontics to remove tartar, debride root surfaces, and to degranulate periodontal defects. In the last two decades, dental surgical techniques have developed rapidly. Piezosurgery is a novel surgical approach which was originally developed for the atraumatic cutting of bone by way of ultrasonic vibrations and as an alternative to the mechanical and electrical instruments that are used in conventional surgery. It is based on the basic principles of 'piezoelectricity' discovered by Pierre Curie and Jacquesin 19th century. Over the past two decades, piezoelectric devices have emerged as an innovative tool in the field of dentistry. There has been extensive research on indications of piezosurgery in the field of periodontology and implantology.
