Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Teeth impaction has always presented a challenging topic, not only for oral surgeons but also for every clinician who approaches dentistry. Over the years, impacted teeth management possibilities have widely increased, mainly because of technological developments in the dental field, which led to new diagnostic methods and modern therapeutic approaches. Nowadays, research focus is highly set on teeth impaction early prevention and non-extractive therapies, such as teeth autotransplanation and mini-invasive orthodontic recovery. Under these terms, dental impaction could become almost an opportunity instead of an insurmountable clinical problem. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect original papers that address this intriguing topic, such as narrative or systematic reviews, meta-analyses, pre-clinical studies, or clinical trials.
