Extractions are routine procedures in dental surgery. Traditional extraction techniques use a combination of severing the periodontal attachment, luxation with an elevator, and removal with forceps. A new technique of extraction of maxillary third molar is introduced in this study—Joedds technique, which is compared with the conventional technique.
Methods and Material
One hundred people were included in the study, the people were divided into two groups by means of simple random sampling. In one group conventional technique of maxillary third molar extraction was used and on second Joedds technique was used. Statistical analysis was carried out with student’s t test.
Analysis of 100 patients based on parameters showed that the novel joedds technique had minimal trauma to surrounding tissues, less tuberosity and root fractures and the time taken for extraction was <2 min while compared to other group of patients.
This novel technique has proved to be better than conventional third molar extraction technique, with minimal complications. If Proper selection of cases and right technique are used.
