Abstract
Previous studies have shown that the presence of unerupted mandibular third molars predisposes the mandible to angle fractures. This study attempted to relate the presence of unerupted mandibular third molars with the incidence of condyle fractures. The authors compared the proportion of fractures in 439 patients who had unerupted third molars or no unerupted third molars. Fractures at the condylar region showed a significantly higher incidence in patients without unerupted third molars than in those patients with unerupted third molars. This study provides solid clinical evidence to suggest that the removal of unerupted mandibular third molars predisposes the mandible to condyle fractures.
