Sir,

The recent report on lingual nerve paraesthesia following mandibular third molar surgery is very interesting. [1] Lata and Tiwari [1] reported that "lingual nerve paraesthesia can occur with or without reflection of lingual flap in spite of all the measures taken to protect it" and that "It may be contributed to the fact of anatomical variations of lingual nerve." The conclusion is very interesting. However, a question that arises of these is whether the conclusion on anatomical variation can be made. It is clear that variation might exist, but the other factors should also be kept in mind. The experience and surgical technique should also be focused on. In a recent publication by Jerjes, et al. [2] the authors noted that "the surgical skills/experience of the operator" was the main risk factor.
