Abstract

A retrospective analysis of complications and side effects associated with surgery for 1000 mandibular and 500 maxillary impacted third molars was performed. The analysis included 614 patients with impacted mandibular third molars and 274 with impacted maxillary third molars who were treated in a 5-year timeframe from 1987 to 1992. The incidence of intraoperative complications and side effects of mandibular third molar surgery was 1.1% and 4% for maxillary third molar surgery whereas postoperative complications were 4.3% and 1.2%, respectively.
