Abstract

Aims of the study: The study aims to evaluate the effect of naproxen and ibuprofen on post maxillo-mandibular fixation (MMF) limited mouth opening. Materials and Methods: The study was per-formed at AL-Jumhoori Teaching Hospital in Mosul City on 30 patients with mandibular fracture and or maxilla who were treated with MMF. The medicaments were allocated to 30 patients using a double blind randomization study who were divided into three groups .Group 1(10 patients) received Ibu-profen. Group 2(10 patients) received Naproxen and Group 3 (10 patients) received placebo . Immedi-ately after MMF release, the maximum mouth opening was measured as the inter-incisal distance be-tween the right upper central incisor and the right lower central incisor. After one hour ,the inter incisal distance was measured again and recorded .The data were analyzed using paired T-test and Duncan multiple analysis. Results: Both Naproxen and Ibuprofen have a statistically significant effect on the improvement of post-MMF limited mouth opening compared to placebo . At the same time there was no significant difference between the effect of Naproxen and that of Ibuprofen on the improvement of post MMF-limited mouth opening .The study also showed that there is inverse correlation between the MMF period and the maximum mouth opening immediately after MMF release. Conclusions: There is no significant difference between the effect of naproxen and that of ibuprofen on the improvement of limited mouth opening after MMF release. The available and cheaper drugs can be prescribed.

Abstract

The surgical extraction of lower wisdom tooth like any surgical procedure is usually associated with postoperative sequelae (pain, swelling and trismus).Different drugs and surgical techniques were used to decrease these inflammatory responses. Steroids have been used commonly for this purposes particularly methylprednisolone (MP). The aim of this study was evaluating the efficacy of preoperative systemic and local administration of MP (10 mg) on the post operative sequelae following surgical removal of lower third molar. Patients included in the study were (60) divided into 3 groups each group consist from (20) persons. The first group was the control one while the second group received (10mg) of MP orally and the third group injected with (10mg) of MP locally around the site of surgery one hour preoperatively. The postoperative sequelae were assessed on the 2nd,5th, and 7th days following the operation. The result showed significant reduction in pain and oedema with the use of systemic MP and there was no effect on trismus. The local injection of (10mg) of MP was significantly affecting the oedema formation on the 5th, and 7th days. The administration of oral methylprednisolone (10mg) played a good role in reducing pain and oedema following lower third molar surgery. The method used was simple, applicable and easily accepted by the patients.

Abstract

This study assessed the impact of patient's age, duration of surgical procedure and type of impaction on pain and trismus after surgery of impacted mandibular wisdom tooth.Successive patients with impacted mandibular wisdom tooth were recruited. Winter's classification was used to classify impacted teeth. Surgical removal of impacted teeth was done using local anesthesia. The effect of age, duration of surgical operation and pattern of impaction on post-operative pain and trismus was studied after 3 and 7 days. Visual analogue score (VAS) was used to assess pain, trismus was measured as the inter-incisal distance using manual caliper and duration of surgical procedure was defined as the period between incision and finishing of suturing. Seventy nine patients with age ranged 15 to 41 years were recruited. The highest percentage were male gender (57%). The highest pain VAS score was recorded in the age group (30-41) after 3 days and the lowest mouth opening was seen in the same population after 3 and 7 days. The mean of operation time was 38.5 and its effect after < 20 minutes recorded the least pain score and trismus after 3 and 7 days. Highest pain score and more trismus were related to horizontal impaction on day 3 (p=0.04, p=0.000); whereas lowest pain value and better mouth opening were related to vertical impaction.Postoperative pain and trismus increased with advancing age, operation time and horizontally impacted tooth and trismus did not resolve within short time and may last for more than 10 days..
