Clinical Efficacy of a New Piezoelectric Technique for Wisdom Teeth Extraction

2018-08-09 17:25:22 | BioPortfolio


the aim of this randomized controlled clinical study is to evaluate the efficacy of a new piezoelectric technique for wisdom teeth extraction without using manual tools versus the conventional one.Patients referred to the hospital of Bolzano for wisdom tooth extraction will be randomly divided in two groups. In the test group all the procedure will be performed using piezoelectric instruments, while in the control one conventional manual instruments will be used. Main outcome measures are patient pain and complications, secondary outcome measures are duration of the surgical treatment and soft tissue healing


Wisdom teeth extraction can be difficult and patient can suffer post operative swelling and pain. A new piezoelectric technique for wisdom teeth extraction was developed and it showed promising results in terms of surgical effectiveness and patients post operative complications. The aim of the study is to compare the new technique with special designed piezoelectric tools with the traditional one in a randomized controlled way. The same procedures are to be followed for teeth extraction except for the use of a piezoelectric lever in one group and a manual lever in the other one. The study is a mono-center, pragmatic, randomised clinical trial (RCT) of parallel group design. The trial would have one week follow up. All patients referred to the Dental Department of S.Maurizio Hospital (Bolzano, Italy) for the extraction of wisdom teeth are considered eligible for the study.

A condition sometimes occurring after tooth extraction, particularly after traumatic extraction, resulting in a dry appearance of the exposed bone in the socket, due to disintegration or loss of the blood clot. It is basically a focal osteomyelitis without suppuration and is accompanied by severe pain (alveolalgia) and foul odor. (Dorland, 28th ed)

It is done over an extended period to allow autonomous adjustment to relieve crowding of the dental arches during the eruption of the lateral incisors, canines, and premolars, eventually involving the extraction of the first premolar teeth.
