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.

Interventions

  • Procedure: warm saline irrigation
    • The objective of this research was 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.

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: Warm saline
    • this site was irrigated during impacted mandibular third molar surgery, with normal saline of 37 ± 1 ° C as for the experimental side.
  • No Intervention: Room temperature saline
    • this site was irrigated during impacted mandibular third molar surgery, with normal saline of 25 ± 2 ° C as for the control side.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Amount of Bleeding in Cubic Centimetre
    • Time Frame: Intraoperatively, up to 30 minutes
    • both sides will be irrigated with 200cc of saline and the suctioned liquids will be carefully measured and compared

Secondary Measures

  • Duration of the Surgery in Minutes
    • Time Frame: Intraoperatively, up to 30 minutes
    • both sides will be irrigated with 200cc of saline and the duration of the surgeries will be carefully measured and compared between both sides
