Material and Methods: A randomized clinical trial involving 100 patients comprising of diagnosed cases of impacted mandibular third molar in which surgical extraction was indicated. These cases were randomly divided into two groups. In Group 1 cases, con ventional suturing technique was used, whereas in Group 2 the Fingerless Suturing Technique was used.
