CARBALLOSA-F, Ulises; AGUILAR-Z, Gerardo; PACHECO-M, Cristobal  and  FIGUEROA-C, Liberto. Efficacy of Preemptive Analgesia with Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (Nsaids) in Third Molar Surgery. Literature Review. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.2, pp.131-136. ISSN 0718-381X.

The management of postoperative pain in third molar surgery is fundamental. The use of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are considered an excellent alternative for pain management, administered both, postoperative and preoperative. The purpose of this review is to establish the efficacy and safety of preemptive analgesia with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs in surgical disinclusions of third molars, in which at least partial bone was removed. We conducted a search in databases like: PubMed, EBSCO, Cochrane Library and Scielo; using the key words: Preemptive Analgesia, NSAID, Oral Surgery. Thirteen articles were selected, in total of 875 patients evaluated in the selected articles. Although several authors considered preemptive analgesia with NSAIDs as an effective method, more standardized studies are needed to demonstrate its effectiveness in oral surgery.

Keywords : preemptive analgesia; nsaids; oral surgery.
