Routine antibiotic prophylaxis is not necessary during operations to remove third molars.
TLDR
There were no significant differences among the groups in the incidence of complications during removal of impacted third molars, and routine oral antibiotic prophylaxis cannot be recommended in third molar surgery. Expand
Antibiotic Prophylaxis in Third Molar Surgery
TLDR
This study failed to show any advantage in the routine use of prophylactic antibiotics in the removal of mandibular impacted third molars because it found no statistically significant difference between the groups. Expand

TLDR
The results reaffirm the surgical principle that contaminated surgical wounds such as third molar sockets are best kept open with a dressing and attempts at primary closure should be resisted if there is no intention to prescribe antibiotic cover. Expand
Evaluation of antibiotic prophylaxis in reducing postoperative infection after mandibular third molar extraction in young patients.
TLDR
A statistically significant difference was found between patients receiving preoperative amoxicillin and the control group in the incidence of postoperative pain, fever, and wound infection and another important finding was the statistically minor consumption of analgesics in the test group inThe postoperative week.

TLDR
The results of this study show that specific postoperative oral prophylactic antibiotic treatment after the removal of lower third molars does not contribute to a better wound healing, less pain, or increased mouth opening and could not prevent the cases of inflammatory problems after surgery, respectively, and therefore is not recommended for routine use. Expand
Relationship between Timing of Antibiotic Administration and Complications Following Surgical Extraction of Lower Third Molars
TLDR
Following surgical extraction of third molars, preoperative antibiotic administration is more effective in reducing the post-surgical complications than pre-operative antibioticAdministering antibiotics following different administration times is found to be more effective than post-operative antibiotics. Expand
