Summary

Removal of impacted lower third molar is considered as the most common surgical procedure carried out in the oral and maxillofacial Clinics. The surgical removal of the impacted mandibular third molar is usually associated with pain, swelling and inability to open the mouth. Those symptoms reach the maximum intensity between the third to fifth hours postoperatively for the pain and 24 to 48 hours postoperatively for the swelling and then, they gradually diminished until the 7th day postoperatively

Description

Removal of impacted lower third molar is considered as the most common surgical procedure carried out in the oral and maxillofacial Clinics. The surgical removal of the impacted mandibular third molar is usually associated with pain, swelling and inability to open the mouth. Those symptoms reach the maximum intensity between the third to fifth hours postoperatively for the pain and 24 to 48 hours postoperatively for the swelling and then, they gradually diminished until the 7th day postoperatively.

Kinesio taping (KT), also termed ''elastic therapeutic bandage,'' is a popular technique used for the management of postoperative lymphedema after maxillofacial surgery. KT is an elastic therapeutic tape invented by Dr Kase in the 1970s. KT originated from sports medicine and is primarily used to support damaged soft tissues (muscles and joints), helping to reduce pain. KT is considered to regulate the blood and lymph flow and also to remove the congestion of lymphatic fluid or hemorrhage and, thus, has achieved popularity in the control of lymphedema.

Many studies had evaluate the KT technique in reducing the morbidity after surgical removal of third molar. There is a lack of adequate evidence regarding effects of KT techniques versus placebo and the effectiveness of KT with that of other methods and medical agents.
