Yojana Bhimrao Patil, Sachin Vilas Shinde

Introduction: Dental extractions were one of the common dental procedures performed these days. Hence; we planned the present study to assess complications occurring in patients undergoing dental extractions. Materials & methods: A total of 100 patients scheduled to undergo dental extraction were included. Dental extractions were carried out in all these patients under the hands of skilled surgeons. Postoperative instructions were given and follow-up was done for assessing the postoperative complication. All the results were compiled in Microsoft excel and were analysed. Results: Most significant postoperative complications observed in the present study were dry socket, bleeding, postoperative welling and postoperative pain found to be present in 4, 5, 6 and 6 patients respectively. Conclusion: Dental extraction procedures are often accompanied by complications. Therefore, special care should be taken while doing dental extractions.
Key words: Dental, Extraction.
