Abstract Objectives: To study the effect of benzocaine mucoadhesive patches (20%) on orthodontic pain caused by elastomeric separators. Subjects and methods. A split-mouth design was used in 30 patients (12 female, 18 male, aged 23 ± 3.75 years). They were instructed to apply benzocaine and placebo patches randomly for right or left first permanent molars of maxillary/mandibular arches for 20 min and repeat this procedure every 6 h with a similar type patch. A 10 cm Visual Analogue Scale (VAS… Expand
Effect of a 5% naproxen patch on reducing pain caused by separators prior to fixed orthodontic treatment
TLDR
The naproxen patch was more efficient than the placebo patch for reducing pain at all time points and recorded pain did not differ significantly between the sexes or between those aged <16 and those ≥16 years. Expand
Efficacy of Ketoprofen and Benzocaine Chewing Gums for Reducing Orthodontic Pain
TLDR
Ketoprofen and benzocaine gums were both significantly effective for orthodontic pain reduction and both significantly decreased pain at all time points except for day 7. Expand
The effect of benzocaine and ketoprofen gels on pain during fixed orthodontic appliance treatment: a randomised, double-blind, crossover trial.
TLDR
A significant pain reduction was observed following the use of ketoprofen when tested against a control gel (placebo), and the highest pain scores were experienced in patients administered the placebo and the lowest scores in patients who applied ketop rofen gel. Expand
Effect of photobiomodulation on pain perception secondary to separator placement
TLDR
Although a single dose of photobiomodulation subsequent to separator placement does not provide immediate relief, it is significantly effective in reducing pain at 24 and 48 h. Expand
The effect of naproxen patches on relieving orthodontic pain by evaluation of VAS and IL-1β inflammatory factor: a split-mouth study
TLDR
In the light of VAS scores and IL-1β levels, naproxen patches reduced the pain caused by separator placement. Expand
The Analgesic Efficacy of 5% Naproxen Gel for Pain Associated with Orthodontic Separator Placement: A Randomized Double-Blind Controlled Trial
TLDR
Using 5% naproxen gel is an effective method for reducing orthodontic pain following elastic separator placement as assessed in a double-blind randomized controlled trial. Expand
Effect of 5% benzocaine gel on relieving pain caused by fixed orthodontic appliance activation. A double-blind randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Benzocaine gel caused a decrease in pain perception at 2 h compared with placebo gel, followed by a decline inPain perception from that point to day 7 for both gels, and no significant difference between overall pain in both groups. Expand
The effect of a lidocaine/prilocaine topical anesthetic on pain and discomfort associated with orthodontic elastomeric separator placement
TLDR
The discomfort and pain resulting from the initial placement of orthodontic elastomeric separators can be significantly reduced with the lidocaine/prilocaine topical anesthetic. Expand
Randomised Controlled Trial of a microneedle patch with a topical anaesthetic for relieving the pain of dental injections.
TLDR
Prior oral application of a microneedle patch combined with 5% topical lidocaine gel reduced the pain experienced from dental infiltration, and this novel technique may allay patients' apprehension of local anaesthesia and improve quality of life outcomes. Expand
Comparative Assessment between Ibuprofen, Chewing Gum, and Bite Wafers in Pain Control Following First Archwire Placement in Orthodontic Patients.
TLDR
The use of bite wafers and chewing gum was effective and comparable to ibuprofen use for pain relief following the initial activation of fixed orthodontic appliances among Saudi orthodentic patients. Expand

TLDR
The results of the present study were promising, and further research on this novel delivery system of benzocaine is warranted to firmly establish efficacy in patients with spontaneous toothache pain. Expand

INTRODUCTION Pain control during orthodontics is an important aspect of patient compliance. The aim of this prospective, randomized, double-blind clinical trial was to compare the pain controlExpand
Effects of preoperative ibuprofen and naproxen sodium on orthodontic pain.
TLDR
Patients taking 550 mg naproxen sodium one hour before archwire placement had significantly lower levels of pain at two hours, six hours, and nighttime after adjustment than patients taking placebo or ibuprofen, however, the use of additional postoperative doses was recommended to control orthodontic pain completely. Expand
Effects of analgesics on orthodontic pain.
TLDR
Ibuprofen was superior to the placebo in relieving postseparator pain as measured by the VAS pain summary scores, whereas acetaminophen and naproxen sodium did not significantly differ from the placebo. Expand

TLDR
A rapid release of biochemical markers (1 h) that peaked after 1 day and partially decreased 7 days later is reported to help in the development of methods that will better control and/or alleviate the discomfort of pain during tooth movement. Expand

TLDR
Preemptive administration of analgesics should be recommended to orthodontic patients before separator placement by assessing the effectiveness in reducing pain of preemptive ibuprofen added to an ib uprofen regimen administered after separators placement. Expand

TLDR
A wax applied to Orthodontic brackets that slowly and continuously releases benzocaine is significantly more effective at reducing the pain associated with mucosal irritation than is the current option used by most orthodontists. Expand

An evaluation of preoperative ibuprofen for treatment of pain associated with orthodontic separator placement.
TLDR
The results support the use of pretreatment ibuprofen for patients requiring analgesics for orthodontic discomfort and suggest a trend for less pain for this group of patients. Expand
