  • Typically cases involve acute pericoronitis of lower third molar teeth. (wikipedia.org)
  • It more commonly occurs in posterior sockets (molar teeth) than anterior sockets (premolars and incisors), possibly because the size of the created surgical defect is relatively larger, and because the blood supply is relatively poorer at these sites. (wikipedia.org)
