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.


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, 20 medically-healthy patients will be enrolled based on their candidature for bilateral mandibular third molar surgery. Finally, the suctioned liquids and duration of the surgeries will be carefully measured and compared between both sides.
