Abstract

Objectives: Pain assessment by clinicians can be difficult as it is subjective and depends on the patient›s self-report.The aims of this study were to evaluate the validity and reliability of a pain-rating scale; the full cup test (FCT), and tocompare its performance to other scales in assessing pain following dental surgery. The ease of using these pain scaleswere compared.Study design: Forty-three patients who have had different dental surgeries were included. All patients asked to completefive pain scales: Faces pain scale, numeric rating scale, visual analog scale, verbal rating scale, and FCT for sevenconsecutive days starting on the day of the surgery. The analysis of variance (One-way ANOVA test), correlation betweendifferent scales (Pearson correlation), and reliability (Cronbach alpha) of FCT were evaluated.Results: The scales correlated highly with each other (P < 0.001). The FCT was highly reliable (Cronbach›s Alpha=.970) and was found to be the easiest scale to use.Conclusion: The FCT is valid, reliable and relatively easy to use pain scale in this group of patients. It can be used toassess pain intensity interchangeably with other pain rating scales.
