Background: Surgical extraction of third molar is one of the most common surgeries performed by maxillofacial surgeons. This study was aimed to assess the incidence of complications after surgical removal of mandibular third molar and their risk factors. Materials and methods: This study was performed prospectively. Patients referred to the School of Dentistry for the surgical removal of mandibular third molar were included. Surgical time, number and form of roots, as well as demographic data… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Comparison of operative ‘difficulty’ with post-operative sequelae in lower third molar surgery
TLDR
This study showed that age and operative time might have an inverse relationship with the common post-operative complications after lower third molar surgery and BMI might influence the extent of these complications.
CLINICAL EVALUATION OF SOFT TISSUE HEALING USING DIODE LASER VERSUS CONVENTIONAL SCALPEL AFTER MICRO-ENDODONTIC SURGERY
TLDR
Both Diode Laser and Conventional Scalpel yield same effect on wound healing and careful training in oral hygiene, combined with a valid surgical technique is essential to obtain the best result of soft tissue healing after micro-endodontic surgery.

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.
Predictor evaluation of postoperative morbidity after surgical removal of mandibular third molars.
TLDR
It is concluded that these commonly used predictors only to a minor extent can explain the wide variation in postoperative morbidity after mandibular third-molar surgery.
Risk Indicators of Postoperative Complications following Surgical Extraction of Lower Third Molars
TLDR
Preoperative complaints, angulation of the impacted molars, duration of surgery, type of surgical flap, the need for bone removal and tooth sectioning could predict and had an impact on the incidence of postoperative complications following L8 removal.
Postoperative Infection after Surgical Removal of Impacted Mandibular Third Molars: An Analysis of 110 Consecutive Procedures
TLDR
The low rates of postoperative infection and other complications observed in this study encouraged us to continue surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars without routine prescription of antibiotics unless indicated for other medical reasons.

Accidents and complications associated to third molar surgeries performed by dentistry students
TLDR
Surgeons’ inexperience was not considered a determinant factor to modify the rates of accidents and complications at third molars surgeries when compared to previous works developed by experienced surgeons.
Experience versus complication rate in third molar surgery
TLDR
The higher rate of postoperative complications in the resident-treated group suggests that at least some of the complications might be related to surgical experience, and further work needs to compare specialists of training programmes with different years of experience, using large cross – sectional studies.
