Third molar surgery is a common surgical procedure. Prescription of Analgesics-Antipyretics and the use of Antibiotic prophylaxis in third molar surgery is the debate of the day and its use is controversial. In this study, the potential value of prophylactic/ postoperative antibiotics and corticosteroids to reduce morbidity following surgical extractions of impacted third molars, has been explored and examined. This research is relevant in that it will set guidelines for Analgesics-Antipyretics, Steroid and Antibiotic prophylaxis in third molar surgery.
