Sinus Lift – Piezotome
How The Piezotome Is Indispensable For Dentists And Patients
The Piezotome, which incorporates piezoelectric instruments, is widely and successfully used in dentistry. Numerous clinical studies support its effectiveness and behind its success lies the modulated piezo signal, which allows a clean cut, tissue relaxation, and ideal cell repair and healing. And the sterile spray, which comes with the instrument, continuously cools the tips of the Piezotome handpiece, and this helps avoid tissue damage due to exposure to high temperatures.
Designed by ultrasonics leader Satelec, the inventor of piezoelectric ultrasonic machines for dental use, the Piezotome has significantly reduced the difficulty in performing dental procedures such as osteotomy, sinus lifting, crown lengthening, extraction, remodeling, curettage and crown lengthening.
The Piezotome, which provides optimal visibility of the operating field, is a powerful, safe and efficient device for dental practitioners including the dental surgeon, endo specialist, periodontologist, maxillofacial surgeon, and implantologist to confidently carry out fast and precise treatments.
The dental professionals and Dr. Amy Khajavi at Excellence Dental, too, use the highly dependable Piezotome during dental surgery, orthodontics, aesthetic dentistry, dental implants, oral surgery, and TMJ because of its time-tested benefits.
Long Life, Reliability, Versatility
Launched in 2005, the device and its accessories are well-recognized in global dentistry for being reliable and ensuring successful and profitable surgical treatments. The Piezotome can be utilized for complicated pre-implant surgery or more traditional treatments and prophylaxis by choosing and alternating between two separate handpieces: Piezotome and Newtron.
To provide an idea about its efficacy, the Newtron technology behind the handpiece by Cruise Control® ensures gentle, controlled, and regular vibrations of the Satelec® tips—so that continuous action, even on deep cuts, can be performed. Therefore, the incisions are made rapidly, without too much pressure, which reduces risks of lesions on soft tissues. As there is a choice of over 100 ultrasonic instruments, the Piezotome offers access to the widest range of tips for procedures.
Simplicity And Ergonomics
A major ergonomic and feature of the Piezotome is that it offers two modes—the Piezotome and the Newtrom. In the Piezotome mode, four programs can be selected as per need and bone density. The Newtron mode is useful for surgical endodontics and periodontics, periodontal maintenance, and conservative dentistry. The other features are given below.
The machine unit can be easily disinfected
There are a dual footswitch and hands-free concept
The irrigation lines can autoclavable 100 times
Choice of power programs in the form of a 1-2-3-4 mode
The pump is ultra-quiet and fast to set up
Significant Advantages Of Using The Piezotome
While the Piezotome’s major benefit is that its modulated signal ensures the preservation of soft tissue, mucous membranes, nerves, and arteries—there are other significant benefits for both patients and doctors.
With a slim tip, the cuts are precise, which promote bone preservation
The healing is faster, and there is reduced post-operative pain
There is reduced risk of trauma with piezoelectric instruments: with no intraosseous temperature increase, the risk for necrosis or cell death is limited.
When dentists irrigate with the Piezotome handpiece, there is a hemostatic effect on the surfaces of the cut surfaces due to cavitation and production of nascent oxygen. This ensures that the treatment area is free from bleeding and healing is rapid.
Comfort factor is beneficial for patients as the piezoelectric effect results in a regular movement with no extraneous vibrations
The Piezotome is particularly useful in sinus elevation by both lateral and crestal approaches, and dentists can also perform total or partial extractions
Piezotome preserves soft tissues as it offers a selective cut, which can be active on hard tissues so that there is no damage to soft tissues such as membranes, nerves, and arteries.
Piezotome For All Specialists
The Piezotome high-powered device is versatile and used by both general practitioners and specialists.
General practitioners and periodontologists can use its two modes for conventional treatments such as prophylaxis, periodontics, endodontics, and restorative dentistry to carry out extractions, osteotomy, and crown lengthening
Endodontists use the Piezotome instruments for canal cleaning and retro-surgery
Implantologists for all the surgical treatments and especially pre-implant surgery to avoid soft tissue damage during sinus elevations, bone grafting, and extractions, etc.
Maxillo-facial surgeons use the implantology motor along with the selective cut of the power ultrasonics for speedy and safe surgery and bone reconstructions.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
In a full mouth reconstruction, which is a restorative dentistry technique, the procedure is designed individually to take care of many dental conditions in one consolidated treatment plan.See more
What is Gum Contouring ?
The need for gum contouring or surgery arises when you are not satisfied with the way your gums and teeth appear—causing embarrassment—or worse if low or high gums are a sign of a deeper disease.See more
Ozone in dentistry is widely accepted and used in daily dental practice in almost all dental applications. The irrefutable disinfection power of ozone, when compared with other standard antiseptics, makes ozone’s dental usage highly suitable.See more
Metal Free Dental Implants
When an all-ceramic dental crown is placed over an all-ceramic dental implant, it appears and functions just like normal teeth, and offers excellent reasons for ceramic to be used as a dental implant. Use of ceramic implants causes the least damage to the immune system.See more
CeraRoot Dental Implants
The CeraRoot Dental Implant is an efficient dental solution to replace missing teeth or tooth that may require replacement. The CeraRoot is made from zirconia oxide, which is a ceramic and has proven advantages over traditional metal implants.See more
Ceramic Zirconia Implants
The shape of CeraRoot ceramic zirconium dental implants is tooth-shaped, and they have a natural tooth-like flair and emergence profile—eliminating the food trap issue, which is a problem with titanium implants.See more

Sedation dentistry uses medicines to help patients remain relaxed during the entire dental procedure. Sedation prevents the feeling of pain and the ability to remember the procedure once completed.See more
Bone Grafting PRGF Factors
PRGF is a breakthrough technique in bone and soft tissue regeneration as it encourages the body to use its full potential of the normal healing pathways—but at a vastly accelerated rate.See more
All-on-4 Dental Implants
The bone fusing feature of the All-on-4 not only ensures that your implants are perpetually fixed in place, but they also prevent future bone loss in the jaw. Both benefits provide a more youthful facial structure—and improved oral health.See more
