Abstract: Aim: The aim of our study is to compare the effects of pre operative and post operative administration of amoxicillin and to analyze its beneficial and harmful effects. Objective: The study was conducted to evaluate the post operative instructions following a dental extraction with or without antibiotics. Background: Tooth extraction is a to remove hopeless teeth that are affected by decay, trauma, periodontal diseases even during orthodontic treatment or impacted tooth or removal of teeth for therapeutic reasons. Tooth extractions are usually done using local anaesthetic injection to reduce painful sensation.4]. There are various complications that arise post extraction. Complications that are seen commonly are dry socket, erythema, pus discharge, excess bleeding. Another common problem that is seen in delayed wound healing. Post extraction antibiotics such as penicillin and amoxicillin are used most commonly. Results: The results showed that out of the 52 patients, only 2 patients reported with post operative bleeding and dry socket. There was no statistically significant difference ( P value - 0.280) Conclusion: Within the limitations of the study we can conclude that, antibiotics are not required after simple extractions in patients who are not medically comprised nor do they have any role in preventing postoperative complications.
