3-Dimensional imaging for lower third molars: is there an implication for surgical removal?


Eyrich, G; Seifert, Burkhardt; Matthews, F; Matthiessen, U; Heusser, C K; Kruse, A L; Obwegeser, J A; Lübbers, H T (2011). 3-Dimensional imaging for lower third molars: is there an implication for surgical removal? Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, 69(7):1867-1872.

Abstract

Three-dimensional imaging is useful for predicting the risk of postoperative IAN impairment before surgical removal of impacted lower third molars. The low IAN impairment rate seen in this study-compared with similar selected study groups in the literature of the era before 3D imaging-indicates that the availability of 3D information is actually decreasing the risk for IAN impairment after lower third molar removal.
