Endodontic postoperative pain is still one of the major problems for dentists. According to the researches periapical inflammation after RCT is one of the most important factors causing endodontic postoperative pain. Histamine is one of the effective chemical mediators, which produces such inflammation. So, for controlling pains after RCT, the factors reducing inflammation should be found. The aim of this study was to investigate pain control after RCT by drug prophylaxis with antihistamine (asetemizole). 60 patients were divided in 2 groups (30 patients in each group). Group 1 had a capsule of  asetemizole (20mg) and the second group had a placebo capsule one hour before RCT. The patients completed the questionnaire after RCT and gave it back on the next session. The evaluated times were 1, 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24 and 72 h after RCT. This study indicated that asetemizole was able to reduce the moderate pericemental pain just at the 9 and 12 hours after RCT, and it was not able to reduce the spontaneous pain after RCT significantly on the evaluated times

Background and Aim: The final objective of root canal therapy is to create a hermetic seal along the length of the root canal system from the coronal opening to the apical termination and to accomplish the best adaptation of obturation material with canal walls. The purpose of this study was to compare the microleakage during lateral condensation of 0.04 and 0.02 tapered gutta-percha master cones.

Materials and Methods: In this experimental in vitro study, seventy two single canal teeth were selected and the crowns were removed. Canals were prepared using a step-back technique. Patency of the apical foramen was maintained and the teeth were divided into two experimental groups of 31 each Ten teeth were used as control group, out of which five served as negative and five as positive controls. The first and second groups were obturated with 0.02 and 0.04 tapered master cones respectively. All the teeth were obturated using lateral condensation technique. The teeth were placed in 100% humidity and 37oc for three days. The roots were coated with two layers of nail varnish and one layer of stick wax except for the apical 2 mm. Teeth were placed in Pelikan ink for one week and sectioned vertically. The maximum depth of dye penetration for each tooth was recorded by two evaluators with stereomicroscope. The results were statistically analyzed using t-test with p<0.05 as the level of significance.

Results: The mean linear dye penetration for the first and second groups was 2.53 0.88mm and 4.89 1.20 mm respectively. The difference was statistically significant (P<0.001).

Conclusion: The results of this study showed that 0.02 tapered gutta-percha master cone, provided a significantly better apical seal than 0.04 tapered gutta-percha master cone.

Background and Aims: Despite the significant improvement in dentistry, pain after endodontic therapy is still of concern for patients. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are the most commonly prescribed oral analgesics used for dental pain relief after root canal treatment. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of Ibuprofen versus slow-released Diclofenac Sodium in controlling pain following root canal treatment.

Materials and Methods: In this randomized clinical trial, mandibular molars with irreversible pulpitis in 90 patients were selected. The patients were divided into three groups (Ibuprofen, slow-released Diclofenac Sodium and placebo). After examination patients filled in the consent form. Then they received one of the mentioned drugs. After inferior alveolar nerve block, access cavity was prepared and the root canals were prepared using passive step back method. The canals were dried and temporary filling material was placed. Then the pain evaluation form (visual analog scale) was explained and delivered to the patients. Data were analyzed using Repeated Measurement ANOVA, Kruskal-wallis and Man-Whitney U tests.

Results: The mean pain intensity in slow-released Diclofenac Sodium group was 0.87 0.95, 1.17 1.10 for Ibuprofen group, and 2.14  1.70 for placebo group. The differences between groups were statistically significant (P<0.001). The effect of Ibuprofen in controlling post endodontic pain in the first 2 hours was more than slow-released Diclofenac Sodium (P=0.01), but in 10, 18, and 36 hours after treatment, slow-released Diclofenac Sodium was more effective than Ibuprofen (P<0.001).

Conclusion: Premedication with single dose of slow-released Diclofenac Sodium can control post endodontic pain for a longer period of time compared with Ibuprofen.

  Background and Aims: Postoperativee endodontic pain is an outstanding problem for dental patients. Therefore, a successful management of endodontic pain has become as one of the main dental objectives. The aim of the present study was to compare the postoperative endodontic pain in patients under general anesthesia versus local anesthesia.

  Materials and Methods: For conducting this clinical trial study, 50 patients having mandibular molars candidate for root canal therapy were selected. Twenty-five patients treated under general anesthesia because of their fear, anxiety or gag reflex. Other 25 patients treated under local anesthesia. All teeth were prepared using engine-driven rotary system in a crown-down technique and filled using lateral condensation technique. Heft- parker visual analog scale was used to measure the degree of pain at 6, 12, 24, and 48 hours after the treatment. Mann-Whitney, Chi-square, and T-tests were used to compare the intensity of postoperative pain between the groups.

  Results: The mean intensity of postoperative pain in local and general anesthesia groups at 6, 12 and 24 hours had statistically significant difference (P<0.05).

  Conclusion: Postoperative pain in patients who treated under general anesthesia was significantly less than the patients who treated under local anesthesia.
