The incidence reported in the literature ranges from 0.4-8.4%third molars and in some instances the damage can be permanent. The aim of this case-control study was to investigate the specific risk factors for neurosensory deficits of inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) after third molar extraction. The cases consisted of patients showing neurosensory deficits of the lower [read the full story...]
The lingual and inferior alveolar nerves are potential at risk of damage during some oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures. Fortunately the majority are temporary, with resolution taking place within 8 weeks. Injuries of 6 moths or greater are considered permanent and a range of techniques have used. The aim of this review was to evaluate [read the full story...]

This review of complications following inferior alveolar nerve repositioning techniques included 24 studies the majority at high risk of bias. Initial sensory disturbance was highest with lateralisation technique but lower at end of follow up periods than transposition approach.

As this review looks as potential harms from bilateral sagittal split osteotomy a wide range of study designs were included. However, the majority relied on subjective assessment of Inferior alveolar nerve injury so a standardised assessment and reporting procedure is needed.
This review included 9 studies assessing the predictive value of panoramic radiography on inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) injury after third molar extraction. Results suggest that darkening of the root had a high specificity in predicting IAN injury.

27 case reports and 1 case series were identified for this review of nerve damage due to over-extruded endodontic materials providing very low quality evidence for management of the problem.

This review of panoramic radiography for IAN injury prediction after third molar surgery included 8 studies calculating key diagnostic data fro the 7 classical used signs. Values were to low to rule out post-operative damage before surgery but some siigns could rule in risk of injury.

This review of coronectomy for management of impacted mandibular third molars included 14 studies suggesting that it is safe and reliable with a low failure rate (7%).
