Abstract

Piezosurgery® is a sophisticated ultrasonic device (Mectron,Italy) invented by Dr.Tomaso Vercellotti. Present study was conducted to see the efficacy and safety of ultrasonic bone surgery device in harvesting intraoral autogenous bone graft and to compair it with manual and rotary instruments. It is concluded that piezosurgery is very easy and safe to use for harvesting intraoral autogenous bone graft as compared to manual and rotary instruments.
