OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study are to analyze the pattern; symptoms and pathology
associated with impacted mandibular third molar teeth.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: This descriptive case series study was conducted at department of

teeth along with two diagnostic x rays, age, gender, type of impaction and associated pathology
were recorded.
RESULTS: Total of 290 patients were included in this study. Out of these females were predominantly affected, mean age was found to be 24.41 years. Vertical impaction was the most common type of mandibular impaction(37.4%) and pain, caries was the common pathological symptom associated with impacted teeth.
