Brief Summary

The objective of this research is to compare the effect of irrigation during impacted mandibular third molar surgery, with normal saline of 25 ± 2 ° C and 37 ± 1 ° C for control and experimental sides, respectively.

Detailed Description

The objective of this research is to compare the effect of irrigation during impacted mandibular third molar surgery, with normal saline of 25 ± 2 ° C and 37 ± 1 ° C for control and experimental sides, respectively. For this purpose, 40 mandibular impacted third molars will be randomly allocated to two groups and surgically removed with the abovementioned saline temperatures. Finally, the suctioned liquids and duration of the surgeries will be carefully measured and compared between both sides.
