SummaryIn a placebo-controlled double-blind study, we examined the effect of perioperative oral administration of 6 mg dexamethasone, given once 12 h before and once 12 h after osteotomy of two impacted molar teeth, on postoperative edema, limitation of jaw opening, and intensity of postoperative pain. On the first day after surgery the difference in the increase in cheek swelling was 54.3% (P<0.001) as measured with a tape, 46% (P<0.001) measured with a gauge in the first molar area and 29% (P… Expand

Comparison of the Efficacy of Prednisolone and Dexamethasone on Reduction of Pain and Swelling after Impacted Mandibular Wisdom Teeth Surgery
TLDR
It was found that the use of a single dose of prednisolone and dexamethasone 12 hours before and 12 hours after surgery can help to reduce pain and swelling of impacted wisdom. Expand
Efficacy of immediate postoperative intramasseteric dexamethasone injection on postoperative swelling after mandibular impacted third molar surgery: A preliminary split-mouth study.
TLDR
Immediate intramasseteric injection of dexamethasone was effective in reducing postoperative oedema after mandibular impacted third molar surgery and was significantly reduced in the study group compared to the control group. Expand

TLDR
Parenteral use of dexamethasone 4 mg, given as an intraoral injection at the time of surgery, is effective in the prevention of postoperative edema and increasing the dose to 8 mg provides no further benefit. Expand
Evaluation of adjunctive effect of low-level laser Therapy on pain, swelling and trismus after surgical removal of impacted lower third molar: A double blind randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Under limitations of this study, using low-power laser with mentioned parameters, clinically reduces pain, swelling and trismus after surgical removal of impacted mandibular wisdom, but not statistically significant. Expand
The effect of the pressure bandage use in varying the pain and swelling after lower third molar surgery
TLDR
Postoperative application of pressure bandage is an effective way to reduce pain and swelling after lower third molar (wisdom tooth) surgery. Expand

TLDR
Both sub-mucosal and endo-alveolar administration of dexamethasone are effective in reducing postoperative sequelae of surgical removal of lower wisdom teeth. Expand
Anti-Inflammatory Effectiveness of Oral Dexamethasone 4 mg on Mandibular Third Molar Surgeries: A Split-Mouth Randomized Clinical Trial.
TLDR
Preemptive use of oral dexamethasone 4 mg proved to be effective in controlling pain and reducing the need for rescue medication and had a beneficial effect in reducing swelling during a short postoperative period. Expand
Analgesic and Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Articaine and Perineural Dexamethasone for Mandibular Third Molar Surgery: A Randomized, Double-Blind Study.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that combining DX with articaine improves the management of discomfort after IMTM surgery and was not associated with neural damage in this study. Expand
Effect of single dose preoperative intramuscular dexamethasone injection on lower impacted third molar surgery.
TLDR
Single-dose intramuscular injection of dexamethasone can reduce postoperative facial swelling and pain, without affecting trismus after LITM surgical extraction, according to healthy patients with lower impacted third molar surgery. Expand

Reduction of pain and swelling by a corticosteroid injected 3 hours after surgery
TLDR
The results suggest that short term corticosteroid administration may be a valuable means of reducing pain and excessive inflammatory response after surgical or accidental soft tissue/bone injury. Expand
Post-operative pain and inflammatory reaction reduced by injection of a corticosteroid
TLDR
In 23 patients, less swelling occurred when betamethasone was given pre-operatively, and no significant correlation between the steroid-induced reduction in swelling and pain could be made, indicating that dissociation may exist between pain and other inflammatory events like swelling. Expand
Paracetamol/codeine in relieving pain following removal of impacted mandibular third molars.
TLDR
The main conclusion from this study is that the analgesic effect of P+C orally administered after a specific oral surgical procedure is superior to ASA and placebo and also appears to have a more marked antiphologistic effect than ASA. Expand
The effect of methylprednisolone on pain, trismus, and swelling after removal of third molars.
TLDR
The swelling and pain, but not the trismus, that developed after third molar removal were significantly reduced by a single dose of methylprednisolone. Expand
Effect of methylprednisolone on swelling after orthognathic surgery.
TLDR
It was concluded that methylprednisolone is effective for the control and management of postoperative facial edema following orthognathic surgery. Expand
Analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of paracetamol evaluated by bilateral oral surgery.
TLDR
The results obtained in this model with bilateral oral surgery suggest that in situations in which there are tissue lesions caused by surgery or injury, paracetamol may be preferable to acetylsalicylic acid if swelling and bleeding are to be prevented or reduced. Expand

TLDR
The decrease in incidence and extent of postoperative sequelae leads us to believe that betamethasone promotes healing of the traumatized tissues. Expand
Comparative efficacy of soluble aspirin and aspirin tablets in postoperative dental pain
TLDR
It is concluded that soluble aspirin is the preferred aspirin formulation for treating postoperative pain after third molar surgery and that plasma aspirin esterase activity is a determinant of a patient's analgesic response to aspirin in postoperative dental pain. Expand
