Abstract : The chisel and air turbine technics were combined for removal of impacted mandibular third molars. The basic steps are as follows: (1) to remove bone with the air turbine; (2) to limit use of the mallet and chisel to a single split and to use air turbine for additional sectioning of tooth; (3) before tooth is split, to remove bone adjacent to coronal element to be sectioned; (4) to use carbide bur on dentin and to use a diamond stone only when dividing tooth involving large segments of enamel.
