The extraction of impacted dental elements is often referred to by maxillofacial surgeons. However, it can be handled as routinely as any other type of extraction. Piezoelectric surgery of impacted teeth, which involves reproducible procedures using a step-by-step approach in all types of cases, also allows dentists who approach the extraction of impacted elements less frequently to carefully prepare for the procedure and perform it, thereby minimizing possible post-surgical issues for the patient, such as biological risks. Using the most innovative techniques, including the application of ultrasound in oral surgery and piezoelectric surgery, the author provides an indispensable tool to train and update dentists who intend to perform all types of extractions.

The common idea that edentulism can always be solved with implants is questioned in this book given that the most recent literature highlights the higher risk of implant prosthodontics than traditional conventional toothborne prosthodontics. This book represents a procedural guide to the fabrication of full veneer crowns with vertical margin design. The preparation of the natural tooth as a prosthetic pillar is certainly a “traditional” procedure that is still one of the most common activities that dentists perform today and the so-called “vertical” preparation is given full credit in this book.
