The first edition of this book was published in 2001 and, now in its third edition, the book has retained all the characteristics that make it a pillar of Oral Surgery. It is extremely clear in describing the basic concepts of oral surgery. Surgical anatomy is described with the support of illustrations whose quality is unmatched in other books. It offers a detailed step-by-step explanation of all the surgical procedures presented. All the new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, the new materials, and the new surgical techniques find a place in the book. Large space is given to implantology given the importance this discipline has acquired in clinical settings. The book is based on lavishly illustrated clinical cases. Also, given their frequency in oral surgery, proper space at the end of the book is given to the most common post-surgical complications, strategies of prevention, and management.
