Abstract

It is of interest to assess two drug regimens for managing pain and swelling in 40 dental implant surgery patients. Visual analogue scale readings were taken at 24 hours, 72 hours and 1 week. Data shows that a combination of acetaminophen and aceclofenac with trypsin chymotrypsin was found to be more effective than acetaminophen alone.
