Abstract

Nowadays, “classification of the impacted wisdom teeth” is always used for evaluating and determining the difficulties in wisdom teeth extraction in oral surgery. Sometimes dentists feel that in such classification is hard to evaluate the level of difficulties for the surgery. Based on the “Classification of the Growing Status of the Wisdom Teeth” in the book Wisdom Teeth Surgery, this chapter classifies the extraction difficulties into six levels based on the root shape of the wisdom teeth and the location of the maxillary sinus and the inferior alveolar nerve canal, in order to scientifically reflect and judge the difficulties of wisdom teeth removal.
