Indomethacin (100 mg. per day for 3 days) was tested for its prophylactic effects on the postsurgical complications of pain, swelling, and trismus after removal of impacted teeth. The drug resulted in a significant reduction of the swelling and an analgesic effect which was equal to that of acetaminophen and codeine. Only two minor side effects were encountered.
