Summary:

The osteotome technique has been utilized for many years as a viable approach to expand atrophic ridges. Despite its effectiveness, the mechanical impact from the surgical mallet is not well tolerated by patients. Additionally, reports in the literature describe postoperative complications that include concussions and benign paroxysmal vertigo. These conditions can be alarming for the patient and clinician, as their effects may persist for several weeks. A new technique for atraumatic ridge expansion has been developed that introduces the surgical use of motor-driven instruments at low speeds. This article discusses the use of motorized bone expanders as a safe alternative to the osteotome technique. Upon reading this article, the reader should: 1. Understand the role of limitations and risks associated with utilizing osteotomes, 2. Become familiar with the advantages offered by motorized bone expanders, including increased control, reduced trauma, and greater precision.
