    Aim: The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of ibuprofen and paracetamol in the treatment of post-extractive dental pain. Objective: The objective of this study was to segregate post-extraction patients into two groups where one group will be prescribed paracetamol and the other group with ibuprofen. Materials and Methods: Patients reporting to Saveetha Dental College and Hospital with the chief complaint of pain and advised extraction were included in the study. Each participant was given a brief explanation of the study, and an informed consent was obtained from each participant before inclusion in the study. The extraction of the tooth was done, and the drug paracetamol was administered to half of the patients and the drug ibuprofen to the remaining patients. Result: The result of the study showed that patients taking ibuprofen had less dental pain compared to the patients on paracetamol. Ibuprofen scored 91.4% compared to 83% of paracetamol in Score 0. Ibuprofen scored 85.6% compared to 69% of paracetamol in Score 1. In Score 2, ibuprofen was 66.6% and paracetamol 52.4%. In Score 3, ibuprofen got 60% and 44.6% for paracetamol.Conclusion: From the result of this study, it is clearly evident that a patient who received ibuprofen had less dental pain when compared with a patient who received paracetamol. This will help clinicians in prescribing medication after dental extraction.
