The final goal in every dental therapy is to cure patients and improve their quality of life throughout treatment. Nevertheless, modern dentistry is increasingly facing mistreatments, complications, failures, and even iatrogenic damages. It is therefore deemed valuable for dentists and patients to share protocols, techniques, instruments, materials, and innovations developed to retreat these clinical cases with no room for error. This book aims to describe novel approaches in the field of oral surgery and to share how failures can be retreated with minimally invasive step-by-step surgical approaches, knowing that the ultimate goal will be the best and longest-lasting “biomimetics” for our patients.

Dr. Tabanella is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and active member of the Italian Academy of Esthetic Dentistry. He graduated from the University of Southern California-Los Angeles-USA where he obtained the Certificate in Periodontics as well as the Master of Science in Craniofacial Biology. He has been awarded “Outstanding Periodontal Graduate Student Research in Surgery and Implantology” by the California Society of Periodontists for his study on bone remodeling. He is the scientific coordinator of the International Implant Conference, director of O.R.E.C.-Oral Reconstruction and Education Center (WWW.TABANELLAOREC.COM), and reviewer and author of original articles published in peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Tabanella lectures in Europe, Asia, Middle East, South Africa as well as in the US on implant and periodontal surgery, aesthetic management in dental implantology and periodontal therapy, peri-implant bone remodeling, soft and hard tissue reconstruction around natural teeth and implants as well as the re-treatment of failures. His research focuses on tissue regeneration and augmentation with different bone and soft graft materials, peri-implant and dental bone loss, novel protocols for the repair of ailing dental implants. He maintains a private practice in Rome (Italy) where he also holds advanced courses and live surgeries on tissue regeneration and re-treatment of implant failures for a limited numbers of participants.
