Objectives Oral surgery complications, specifically nerve lesions, are more and more frequent due to the wide spread of implantology. Materials and methods Surgical timing is pivotal. Surgical treatment should be promptly performed in case of either ascertained lesion or pain. The authors present their procedural protocol for lingual nerve and inferior alveolar nerve lesions. Results Results of the presented protocol are satisfactory with a functional recovery of approximately 80%. Conclusions Regeneration process, prognosis and treatment of nerve lesions are still hardly known by specialists. A systematic approach allows both patients and physicians to keep unconcerned by unprofessional opinions that are unsupported by actual scientific evidence.
