Abstract

&ndps;&ndps;Transalveolar extraction or third molar (M3) surgery is one of the routine procedures performed by Oral and Maxillofacial Sur- geons in their clinical practice. The surgery involves various steps which determines the success of the procedure. One such step is the reflection of mucoperiosteal flap, which is vital in M3 extractions. The Surgeon should handle the soft tissue with all caution when reflecting a local flap as it is an important component for wound closure after the surgical procedure. In this article we have reviewed various flap design used in M3 surgery and the fundamental principles of flaps are highlighted.
