Exodontia is essentially a surgical procedure and warrants all the judicious precautions and the aseptic care to prevent complications. Whenever the basic principle of surgery is violated, the relative chances of developing complications are increased significantly. Complications are multifactorial and are correlated to either to the patient’s health status or habits or to systemic and local factors. Post extraction complications can be delayed complications or late complications. A careful analysis of patient’s medical history, proper surgical technique and the correct instructions in the post surgical behaviour prevent the insurgence of intra and post operative complications.
