The purpose of this study is to analyze the incidence of complications in a group of 171 patients in whom extractions of impacted mandibular third molar have been performed by two oral surgeons between the period April 2010 and March 2012. This retrospective study comprises evaluation of 270 impacted mandibular third molars which were classified into two groups A and B on the basis of procedure of osteotomy only and osteotomy and odontotomy both respectively. Total no of complications reported were 40 (14.81%). Maximum no of cases reported alveolar osteitis (AO) (11.11%) while other complications reported root tip fractures (2.22%), lingual nerve parasthesia and TMJ problems (each 0.74%) in descending frequency. Conclusion drawn is that the risk of complications in extractions of impacted mandibular third molars always exists, and extractions associated with both osteotomy and odontotomy are associated with higher risk of complications.
