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.

Abstract

Antibiotic prophylaxis in oral surgery is well established practice; still there is no specific protocol followed in Iraqi dental surgical centers. The aim of this study is to compare between efficiency of 3 prophylactic protocols in preventing post operative infection and reducing healing period in out patient’s oral surgical procedures. Forty four patients, selected from the attendants of oral surgery clinic in college of dentistry Almustansiriyah University, were subjected to different oral surgical procedures (45 operations) under local anesthesia. These patients were given single dose antibiotic prophylaxis in 3 groups; 1st group were given 1 million i.u. of procaine penicillin (15 cases), 2nd group were given 500 mg ampicilline vial (15 cases), 3rd group were given 1 gm amoxicillin (15 cases). The maximum time for all procedures was 2 hours. We conclude that there is no difference between ampicilline (500mg), procaine penicillin (1 million i.u.), and Amoxicillin (1 gm) regimens concerning post operative infection, while patients of the 1st group healed in a shorter period than other two groups.
