About

The aim of this study is premedication efficacy of analgesics on post endodontic pain. Sixty-six healthy adult volunteers including criteria, are participating. The patients will be divided into 3 groups and will be randomly given one of pre medications including 1) 10 mg Ketorolac, 2) 10 mg Ketorolac plus 1000mg Acetaminophen, and 3)Placebo, 45 minutes before applying the injection. All patients will receive standard root canal treatment. Patients will record their post treatment pain using a Heft parker Visual Analog Scale(VAS). Success will be considered as no or mild pain (VAS≤54)with no need to take analgesic. Data will be analysed using Mann-U-Whitney and Kruskal-wallis tests.
