GUTIERREZ VALDEZ, D.H.  e  DIAZ PEREZ, R.. Incidence of postoperative third molars infections in patients treated in teaching care clinic. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.5, pp.259-264. ISSN 2340-3152.

Objective: To determine third molar postsurgical infections incidence. Material and methods: 149 consecutive patients who attended the oral surgery clinic at UNAM School of Dentistry with surgical indication for third molar, without systemic involvement or medication in the previous seven days and no signs of infectious symptomatology were studied. Socio-demographic, molars and surgery characteristics were registered. The surgeries were performed in University healthcare and teaching clinic by fourth year students under specialist teachers supervision. Infection was evaluated at seventh and fifteenth postsurgical days. To determine infection incidence, descriptive statistic was used. The information was processed in SPSS 17.0 software. Results: 51% of patients were male with mean age of 25±7.5 years, were included 347 molars (161 maxillary and 186 mandibular). 1.3% of patients developed infection all were in left mandibular molars. There was significant association p<0.05 between infection development and the third molar position (B and C position), operative complexity (partial and complete retention in bone), alcohol and smoke. Conclusions: The incidence of infections was 1.3% of patients, all left mandibular.
