Abstract: 

Introduction: Since remaining impacted teeth may result in pathologic lesions, prophylactic extraction of third molarwhich is the most frequent impaction-is among the most common surgical procedures. Our study was performed to evaluate the histopathological changes of impacted molar teeth follicles.
Materials & Methods: In this descriptive study, 54 impacted molar teeth follicles of 50 patients with age range of 15-38, and examined in the surgery ward of Mashhad dental school from June to November 2005, were extracted by a surgeon and pathologic evaluation were performed.
Results: In this study, the most commonly extracted teeth were mandibular molars (79%) and 74% of patients were under 25. The most frequent location of the extracted teeth was mesioangular (46%). In microscopic evaluation of specimens, 61% were unchanged dental follicles, 12.9% were odontogenic cysts and 24% had inflammation.
Conclusion: Considering the low incidence of pathologic changes in impacted third molar follicles, it is better not to extract them except in a clear indication. These teeth are better to be monitored by imaging with the 6-12 month intervals.
