Abstract: Facial edema following oral surgeries is inevitable. It disfigures the person physically, emotionally and socially during the initial post -operative period. Anti-inflammatory drugs, though reducing the swelling, are usually accompanied by side effects. Activated charcoal is a locally applied medication with no side effects, which can reduce post-operative edema significantly. This article focuses on the effects of activated charcoal on post-operative edema of the face and neck.
