GABRIELLI, Marisa Aparecida Cabrini et al. Comparative study of the efficacy of two different anti-inflammatory drugs (Etoricoxib and Diclofenac) following removal of impacted lower third molars.. Rev. cir. traumatol. buco-maxilo-fac. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.3, pp. 93-100. ISSN 1808-5210.

In this article the authors clinically compare the efficacy of two different anti-inflammatory drugs - Etoricoxib (Arcoxia®) and Diclofenac (Olfen®) - in the control of postoperative pain resulting from the surgical removal of impacted lower third molars. Fifteen patients requiring the extraction of bilaterally impacted lower third molars were selected at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Araraquara School of Dentistry - UNESP. The drugs were randomly administered during the first and second surgical procedures. Pain was evaluated by means of a visual analogic scale for 72 hours following the surgical procedure. After statistical analysis of the results, the authors concluded that there were no significant differences in terms of postopoerative pain control between the two drugs studied.
