Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will be able to: • Understand the difference between cutting bone with a conventional bur, bone saw and piezo electric technology. • Identify which piezo electric tips are appropriate for each procedure. • Demonstrate settings for different densities of bone found in the mouth. • Explain how using Piezotome 2 will conserve bone harvesting for block grafts compared to a conventional rotary instrument. • Appreciate the safety of using Piezotome 2 close to vital soft tissue structures including the posterior superior alveolar artery and the mandibular canal. • Understand how to minimize sinus membrane perforations by using the Piezotome 2 to make the lateral window for a sinus bone graft. • Compare removing a failing implant or tooth with a trephine or rotary instrument vs. Piezotome 2.
