The surgical treatment of impacted teeth, especially the third molars, is one of the most usual surgeries in dental offices. The locati¬on of the incisions and the choice of the kind of flap for these kinds of surgeries are deter¬mined according to the desired access and related anatomic structures. The aim of this study was to compare the angled incisions with mesial relieving or dis¬tal relieving of the second molar, the envelo¬pe incisions and the "V" incision, in relation to healing, wound dehiscences and indicati¬ons. Thirty-four patients who had the lower third molars impacted were assisted. The patients were divided in four groups, according to the different flaps. At the end of the studies, it was observed that the degree of impact influences on the kind of flap chosen.
