Dr. Jasbinder Kumar, Dr. Satish Kumaran P.
Aim- The aim of the study was to compare the effect of co- administered dexamethasone and diclofenac potassium alone on the post operative pain, swelling and trismus after surgical removal of third molar. Materials and Methods- The study includes 40 medically fit patients of an age group 20- 40 years of age having impacted mandibular third molars visiting the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in M.R.Ambedkar Dental College and Hospital, Bangalore. Patients were included in the study after ethical clearance from the institution. A total of 40 patients were randomly divided into 2 groups. In Group 1 ( Dexamethasone 8 mg & Diclofenac K 500 mg ) was given. In Group 2 ( Diclofenac ): was given. Result- Co administration of Dexamethasone and Diclofenac was significantly superior to diclofenac alone for the relief of pain and post operative swelling. However there was no significant difference for trismus relief.
