Abstract

Surgery for removal of wisdomteeth requires bone cutting under a constant streamof saline to cool the site of surgery. Any interruption in irrigationmay predispose to thermal necrosis of bone which delays healing. A gravity-assisted saline irrigation systemis easily fabricated froma sterile intravenous drip-set. Economics, availability, ease of use and sterility are its advantages as compared to expensive electromechanical saline dispenser pumps.The systemalso permits the surgeon’s assistant to concentrate on other tasks during the operation.
