Extraction of teeth is a common procedure in dentistry. Recalling patients for monitoring wound healing is a concern in surgical procedures. It allows foreseeing signs or/and symptoms possibly related to surgical complications. Therefore, it is of interest to document
the link between gender and complications in post extraction. The null hypothesis was age and gender had no impact on post dental extraction. We used patient records at Saveetha Dental College, India for this study. The overall follow-up rate post-extraction is less
compared to known literature. Data shows that males outnumbered the females and those “above 40 years” than “below 40 years” in follow-up. Thus, we report that factors such as gender, age and the presence of a post-operative complication play a key role in
determining whether a patient reports back for follow-up after routine extractions.
