This paper is aimed to compare the effects of split-root procedures and bone removal procedures in the extraction of mandibular medial vertical impacted third molars. This was a prospective study conducted at the Department of Oral Surgery of the Chifeng College Affiliated Hospital on consecutive patients between January 2015 and December 2015. The study result showed that the operative time of the split-root group was shorter, and the dental root fracture was less than the bone removal group. This study suggested that the short-term outcomes of medial vertical impacted third molar operations (facial swelling, pain and mouth opening) differed depending on the surgical approach.
