We have read with great interest the article entitled “Density of the mandibular ramus (cancellous:cortical bone volume ratio) as a predictor of the lingual fracture pattern in bilateral sagittal split osteotomy” by van der Hee et al
1in a recent issue of the journal. We appreciate that they have provided us with worthy clinical results and would like to share some of our opinions concerning the timing of third molar removal in relation to bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSO).
