Abstract

Impacted third molar is more likely to have inferior alveolar nerve involvement. Surgical extraction of this
tooth without proper evaluation of pre operative investigations can lead to neurovascular damage which will
lead to sensory loss in lower lip that is extremely unpleasant to the patient. This review article is to gain
knowledge about how to know the association of nerve injury in the surgical extraction of mandibular third
molar and its preservation technique
