ARAUJO, Rafael Zetehaku et al. Pain Control in Third Molar Surgery. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2016, vol.10, n.3, pp.385-391. ISSN 0718-381X.

The sensation of pain at the surgical site may be increased and persist for long periods after the noxious stimulus has been removed. Post-operative pain from the extraction of impacted molar may cause serious discomfort to the patient resulting in considered moderate to severe in intensity. Analgesia for this surgical procedure is related to the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, analgesics of central and peripheral actions used in combination or individually. The aim of this review is to show an update about the use and the physiological bases for indications of the analgesic therapy in third molar surgery.

Keywords : third molar; pain; oral surgery.
