Sedation combined with local anesthesia is a safe alternative to general anesthesia because spontaneous reflexes and patient cooperation are retained while fear and apprehension (common reasons to delay dental care) are reduced. Local anesthetic techniques are often complemented by the balanced use of low doses of analgesic and sedative/hypnotic drugs to provide analgesia, anxiolysis, and sedation. Recovery is then more rapid and patients are more clear-headed, making this technique invaluable […]

Patients in the 2 groups were similar with respect to age, height, weight, gender distribution, and length of surgery (Table 1). There were no significant differences (P = .05) in age, weight, blood pressures (systolic, diastolic, mean arterial), pulse oximetry oxygen saturation, pegboard tests between the 2 groups at the various time intervals measured (Table 2). With regard to the perioperative sedation and anxiety levels at the different intervals, no significant differences […]

Forty-five healthy male or female patients aged 18-55 years scheduled to undergo surgical removal of an impacted mandibular third molar were eligible for participation in the study (see Table 1 for demographic data). All patients required bone removal and suturing. Exclusion criteria were as follows: pregnancy or lactation; use of anticoagulants, analgesics, or any central nervous system depressants; hypersensitivity to opioids or any other medication likely to interfere with the […]

An Evaluation of Analgesic Efficacy and Clinical Acceptability of Intravenous Tramadol

Pstoperative pain following surgical removal of a mandibular third molar is a validated, well-documented, and highly sensitive model to assess therapeutic relief of moderate to severe pain. Despite the availability of potent […]

There are different pain models and varying methods for studying analgesic agents. The dental pain impaction model has been chosen in this review, and the analgesic studies were single-dose studies or multidose studies. It should be noted that the majority of the RCTs reviewed in this article are single-dose analgesic studies. Single-dose studies are good and appropriate because they are excellent predictors of analgesic efficacy and can be used to […]

GI Tract Complications

From the standpoint of morbidity and mortality, GI adverse effects undoubtedly constitute the most important group of adverse effects. Indeed, GI ulceration and hemorrhage are more significant than all other NSAID ( Mobic canadian is used for treating rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and juvenile arthritis) adverse effects combined in cases of chronic use. Dyspepsia, nausea, and diarrhea are the other common minor adverse effects. Evidence from the 26 RCTs supports that […]



Many complications and serious adverse events can occur with chronic treatment of NSAIDs ( Canadian Indocin used to treat minor aches and pains associated with the common cold, headache, muscle aches, backache, and arthritis). Clear evidence exists for these serious adverse events in […]
