Complication, extraction, impacted third molars. Abstract The aim of this study was to identify the position of impacted mandibular third molars based on the classifications of Pell & Gregory and Winter, the indications for extraction, and the relation of post-operative complications and position. Records of patients who attended Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia between January and December 2007 for surgical removal of mandibular third molars were reviewed. The angulation type, width and… Expand
Frequency of Different Types of Mandibular Third Molar Impactions
TLDR
Mesioangular impaction was more common followed by vertical impactions, and depth B was the most common. Expand
Prevalence of impacted third molars and the reason for extraction in Saudi Arabia☆
TLDR
There is a high rate of third molar impaction in the central region of Saudi Arabia, and it is more likely to occur in the mandible than the maxilla with no gender predilection. Expand
Retrospective analysis of malpositioned mandibular third molars in elderly patients
TLDR
This study showed the older the patient the less likely malpositioned mandibular third molar suggesting that majority of such impactions do not cause pathology after many years of their presence in the oral cavity. Expand
IMPACTED MANDIBULAR THIRD MOLARS: PATTERN OF PRESENTATION AND POSTOPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS
TLDR
The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the occurrence, characteristics and postoperative complications of impacted mandibular third molars in 260 patients from Oct 2008 to July 2010, with a greater risk of developing complications in horizontal and distoangular types and in Class IIIC and IIIA impactions. Expand
PREDESPOSING FACTORS FOR THE INFECTION OF MANDIBULAR THIRD MOLAR
TLDR
The frequency of infections found with the impacted mandibular third molar regarding its different angulations (Winter’s classifications) was determined and the most common infection found was pericoronitis. Expand
POST-OPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH IMPACTED MANDIBULAR THIRD MOLAR REMOVAL
TLDR
Evaluating the occurrence of post-operative complications after surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molar found swelling, pain, and trismus were most common followed by nerve injury, dry socket, and infection. Expand
Incidence of impacted mandibular third molars in population of Bosnia and Herzegovina: a retrospective radiographic study
Introduction: Impaction may be defi ned as the failure of complete eruption into a normal functional position of one tooth within normal time due to lack of space in the dental arch, caused byExpand
Prevalence of mandibular third molar impaction pattern in a private dental clinic of Sultanpur Lodhi
TLDR
Evaluation of angulation, ramus relationship and depth of impacted mandibular third molars among patients visiting a private dental clinic in Sultanpur Lodhi revealed that mesioangular impaction was the most prevalent angular pattern followed by vertical, distoangular and horizontal types, and Class 2 Position A the least common type of impaction depth and ramu relationship.

Impacted mandibular third molars: presentation and postoperative complications at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital.
TLDR
The pattern of presentation of impacted Mandibular third molars is similar to earlier reports, the morbidity is however higher than the average value in the literature, it however does not seem to increase with increasing age. Expand
Extraction of impacted mandibular third molars: postoperative complications and their risk factors.
TLDR
Surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars should be carried out well before the age of 24 years, especially for female patients, because older patients are at greater risk of postoperative complications and permanent sequelae. Expand
Indications for extraction of third molars: a review of 1763 cases.
TLDR
Cies and periodontal diseases occurring in relatively older age group were the major reasons for non-surgical extraction of third molars while recurrent pericoronitis occurring in comparatively younger age was the major reason for surgical extraction of impacted third m teeth. Expand
The surgical removal of mandibular third molars: a study in decision making.
TLDR
The results obtained in this study are similar to those reported in earlier studies carried out elsewhere, although the incidence of periodontitis among Jordanians was significantly higher and occurred in older patients, and prophylactic removal was performed less frequently than has been reported in other countries. Expand
Influence of lower third molar position on the incidence of preoperative complications.
TLDR
The mandibular position of the impacted third molar may be able to be correlated to the development of complications resulting from impaction removal and the existence of unwanted neurological changes. Expand
Minor complications after mandibular third molar surgery: type, incidence, and possible prevention.
TLDR
The insertion of an absorbable gelatin sponge into the extraction socket was found to be a very useful method to prevent postoperative bleeding problems and to predict the risk of skin ecchymosis or mucosa petechiae related to the usage of an absorbing gelatin sponge. Expand
Factors influencing the prophylactic removal of asymptomatic impacted lower third molars.
TLDR
Analyzing factors indicating prophylactic removal of impacted lower third molars and how they, and possibly surgeon experience, influence the therapeutic decision-making process found the surgical experience of the professional does not seem to influence treatment decision. Expand

TLDR
The frequency of impacted third molars in the Singapore Chinese population studied was generally two to three times that reported in races of the Caucasian stock. Expand
Prevalence and surgical morbidity of impacted mandibular third molar removal in the aging population: a retrospective study at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital.
TLDR
The result does not support prophylactic surgical extraction of third molars based on the assumption that surgical morbidity increases with age, and the prevalence and associated morbidity in patients = 40 years of age in this institution is reported. Expand
Morbidity of third molar extraction in patients between 12 and 18 years of age.
TLDR
An increased tendency towards complications was observed in females, and the percentage of postoperative problems increased, during the extraction of upper and lower third molars in patients between 12 and 18 years of age. Expand
