Abstract

Objective

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of various occlusal reduction levels on the postoperative pain in teeth diagnosed as symptomatic apical periodontitis by using a computerized analysis system.

Materials and methods

Thirty-nine molar teeth with symptomatic apical periodontitis were included. After the root canal preparation and filling was performed, the subjects were divided into three groups according to the level of occlusal reduction determined by using T-Scan (T-Scan III for Windows, Tekscan Inc., South Boston, MA) as follows: (1) no reduction (control), (2) semi-reduction, and (3) full-reduction groups. Preoperative and postoperative pain levels using visual analogue scale, percussion pain, and analgesic intake were recorded for each subject. The data were evaluated statistically using two-way analysis of variance and Holm–Sidak post hoc tests at a 95 % confidence level (P = 0.05).

Results

There was no significant difference between the groups in terms of occlusal reduction (P > 0.005).

Conclusion

Within the limitation of the present study, there were no significant differences among the no reduction, semi-reduction, and full-reduction groups at 1, 3, 5, and 7 days in terms of postoperative pain levels.

Clinical relevance

Occlusal reduction, determined using a computerized analysis system, did not influence the postoperative pain in teeth diagnosed as symptomatic apical periodontitis.
