Resumo

The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of piezosurgery for osteotomy and odontosection in the repair of the alveoli four months after exodontia. Fifteen young patients who needed third molars extracted were included. During the extractions, one of the teeth was included in the Piezo group, in which ultrasound motor tips were used in both procedures. The other tooth was removed with a conventional rotary instrument. The values of density of the repair regions of the right and left third molars were compared using digital panoramic radiographs. There were no significant differences (p > 0.05): piezo group mean (SD) 125.7 (15.4) and control group 126.7 (21.2). The bone density of the alveoli after extraction of the lower third molars with rotary instruments and surgical ultrasound was similar in both groups.
