What Is the Outcome of an Incision and Drainage Procedure in Endodontic Patients? A Prospective, Randomized, Single-blind Study
CE Hours: 1.0 CE hour
There are no prospective endodontic studies to determine the outcome of an incision and drainage (I&D) procedure for swelling in healthy, endodontic patients. The purpose of this prospective, randomized, single-blind study was to compare the postoperative course of I&D with drain placement versus a mock I&D procedure with mock drain placement after endodontic debridement in swollen emergency patients with symptomatic teeth and a pulpal diagnosis of necrosis.
At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Compare postoperative pain for the patients receiving the I & D versus the mock I & D.
- Discuss if the I & D procedure resulted in immediate relief of moderate to severe pain.
- Describe why patients with a mock I & D procedure had less postoperative pain.
