Background: Third molar surgical extraction is an essential and one of the most common surgical operations in dentistry. This surgery could result in a number of postoperative problems. Pain, trismus, an infection, a dry socket, or alveolar osteitis are a few of these. These morbid diseases have been alleviated using a variety of irrigation techniques.

Aim: The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of ozonized water to double distilled water in treating pain, healing, and trismus following impacted teeth.

Materials and Methods: 50 Patients who undergo surgical extraction of third molars are included in the study. Irrigation was done with ozonized (group 1) or double distilled water (group 2). The type of irrigation and the side to be operated were randomized. Neither the patients nor the operator or evaluator were aware of the irrigation solution. Pain,healing and trismus were evaluated. The data were evaluated by Friedman, Wilcoxon, Mann-Whitney tests, and size effect.

Results: It was discovered that, when compared to regular saline, ozonated water offered the best statistically supported results. Between the two study groups, there was no statistically significant difference in the incidence of trismus or infection rate.

Conclusion: As a trans surgical irrigation solution, ozonized water has proven to be safe and effective at managing pain and swelling after third molar surgery.
