SP-29 Evaluation of Pain Following Endodontic Treatment: Prospective, Multicenter Clinical Study Results

CE Hours: .75 CE hour 


Regardless of pre-operative diagnosis, pain and discomfort associated with endodontic therapy is reported in as many as 58 percent of patients. Post-operative pain has been known to last from a few hours to weeks with rates reported post-procedure. Recent studies on advancements in endodontic technology and innovation have reported reduction in patient-reported post-operative pain rates. As newer technologies become available within the endodontic speciality, a review of their impact on patient-reported post-operative pain should be investigated and reported. This presentation will include a review of reported pain outcomes for patients included in a prospective, multicenter clinical study. Patient reported pain outcomes will be provided from pre-procedure to at least seven days post-procedure.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the pain scores reported in a prospective, multicenter, clinical studies.
  • Evaluate the patient-reported outcomes in comparison to published pain data.
  • Identify how the presented data may influence the clinical aspects of practice and future studies.
