    Introduction: Extraction of teeth is one of the most common surgical procedures performed by dental surgeons. To perform extractions with minimal trauma to the surrounding tissues, it is necessary to have extensive training, skill, and experience. With an untrained or inexperienced dental surgeon, the incidence of complications post-extraction is high. This article aims at assessing the knowledge about post-extraction complications and its management among dental students in a city. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted as a cross-sectional survey among 50 dental students pursuing final year and internship in Chennai city. 10 questions eliciting information about the knowledge of post-extraction complications and management were framed. The responses obtained from the participants were compiled, processed further and analyzed. Various studies were referred to gain more knowledge to improvise the study. Results: On analyzing the results and comparing with recent similar studies, the dental students are aware of post-extraction complications and its management so as to ease their practices and pave more comfort for the patient. Conclusion: This study concludes that the knowledge about post-extraction complications and its management among dental students in a city is adequate. Dental awareness programs or lectures if arranged to address this concern may give additional knowledge and aid in treatment planning.
