This article presents the authors’ experience with the use of a piezoelectric device to perform different osteotomies during open temporomandibular (TMJ) surgery. In the last six months six patients underwent TMJ open surgery with a piezoelectric device in order to perform osteotomies both in the condyle and in the articular eminence. This surgical instrument allows to trace an accurate osteotomy line, without injuring the adjacent soft tissues.
