Chapter 8 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. It reviews and discusses the indications and contraindications for the removal of impacted teeth, the classification of impacted teeth and the determination of the degree of difficulty of surgery, the parameters of perioperative patient care and the possible complications and their management following third molar surgery. It notes that the presence of the impacted third molar may cause several orthodontic problems, such as the crowding of mandibular incisors.
