Abstract

Lower third molar removal is the most commonly performed dental surgical procedure. Nevertheless, it is difficult to ensure that all the informed consent forms given to patients are based on the best evidence as many newer publications could change the conclusions of previous research. Therefore, the goal of this review article is to cover existing meta-analyses, randomized control trials, and related articles in order to collect data for improved and more current informed consent.
