Background: There are multiple surgical techniques proposed for implant bone bed preparation to enhance the stability of implants. However, there is no adequate amount of scientific evidence to support the association between the surgical techniques and implant stability.
Purpose: This systematic review aims to investigate the influence of laser/piezoelectric or conventional drill on its surgical outcome during bone bed preparation.
Materials and Methods: The studies included were from January 2007 to December 2017 An electronic search was done of PubMed, Google Scholar, Institutional Library and manual search of various journals. The inclusion criteria composed of all randomized control trials and observational studies evaluating the implant stability after bone bed preparation conventionally or using a piezo electric system or laser. All studies selected were in ENGLISH language only and included in vitro and in vivo studies conducted in animals.
Results: 6 articles were selected which met the criteria of comparative evaluation of conventional versus non conventional drilling methods. There is very weak evidence suggesting that the use of piezo electric or laser methods compared to conventional method of the bone bed preparation could influence the implant stability.
Limitation: Total number of articles screened for full text is limited in number i.e. only 6 articles are screened in this systematic review.
Conclusion: There is still a lack of evidence about the better surgical outcome about the influence of laser or piezoelectric technique compared to the conventional drilling method on implant stability.
