Right (%) 55.7 49.7
Left (%) 44.3 50.3
P value   0.28
  1. Abbreviations: LNIG lingual nerve injury group, CG control group
  2. P value (chi-squared test): The ratio of the lingual nerve injury side in this study was statistically compared to the ratio of the mandibular third molar removal side in the other past study. P < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant
