AbstractObjective: Casting light on the spread of deep abscess related to mandibular third molar displace in the community.Patients and Methods: One hundred thirty two out-patients with dental problems due to third molar were considered in this study.Results: The incidence rate of deep abscess is found to be 16.67% with male to female ratio 2.14:1. The incidence rate of third molar displacement is found to be approximately 10.61%. Male to female ratio of third molar displacement is 1:1. Third molar extraction was done for 39 (29.55%) of the patients with male to female ratio 2:1. With respect to displaced third molar, surgical extraction was done for 71.43% of the cases. Age was not found to affect displacement, size of abscess and the decision of surgical extraction.Conclusion: It is of interest to mention that this problem occurred in males and females with equal potentiality. Reasons of why it happened in this pattern are not clear yet.
