Abstract:   (113 Views)
Introduction: According to investigators’ findings, pain after periodontal flap surgery is a common occurrence so that its control is very important in the treatment procedure. Although Ibuprofen is the most common drug for the pain control in dentistry, this drug has its own side effects. The purpose of this investigation is to compare the prophylactic and post operation effect of ginger; Zingiber Officinale (Zintoma) and Ibuprofen on the pain after surgical treatment of periodontal flap.
Materials and Method: The samples of this study were collected from 46 patients attending the dental clinic in Guilan University of Medical Sciences, Rasht, Iran. Patients were classified into three groups. The first group received placebo, the second group received Ibuprofen and the third group received Zintoma. The amount of pain were recorded by two main measurement criteria of VAS and VRS at different times and then the data were analyzed using SPSS21. P value was considered <0.05.
Results: 12 hours after surgery, most patients in Ibuprofen group (n=39) and Zintoma group (n=36), reported no pain while, most patients in placebo group (n=25), reported less pain. Statistical analysis shows that the Zintoma group had significantly more effect on pain.
Conclusion: It seems that Zintoma has almost the same impact of Ibuprofen in reducing the pain. While it has less side effects, it is better to use it as an analgesic drug in controlling the pain after periodontal flap surgery.
