  • Abstract

    Impacted lower third molar surgical removal is one of the most commonly performed procedures, but it is associated with complications which are said to affect the quality of life of patients. It is, therefore, essential for the oral maxillofacial surgeon to have an adequate knowledge on the complications and the different scientific modalities available to alleviate them to reduce the morbidity associated with the procedure. This review is aimed at discussing the various complications causing morbidity and sometimes rarely, mortality following the surgical removal of mandibular impacted teeth and the various strategies and measures available to minimize these complications at various levels.
