  • Abstract

    Pain is a complex experience consisting of a specific sensation and the reactions evoked by that sensation. Conventional analgesics either interrupt ascending nociceptive impulses or depress their interpretation within the depress their interpretation within the central nervous system or inhibit COX mediated prostaglandin synthesis ,one of the major culprit of pain and inflammation. Analgesic adjuncts have proven efficacy for managing chronic pain. They include various antidepressants and anticonvulsants that either enhance descending inhibitory pathways or modulate excitatory neural traffic that amplifies pain interpretation. These agents have marginal benefit in the management of acute pain. Relieving pain is a challenge in dental practice due to the fact that the effectiveness of the medication differs from patient to patient. The aim of this review is to list out different types of medication used to reduce or prevent post-operative discomfort of the patient and to give a clear view on medications commonly used in dental practice.
