Interappointment pain & flare up during endodontic treatment procedures: An update
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Shikha Sharma
ABSTRACT:EIt is of utmost importance for a clinician to have a complete understanding of causes and mechanisms behind interappointment pain to prevent or manage the condition adequately. Interappointment pain is caused primarily by microbial injury to the periradicular tissues and to some extent by chemical and mechanical iatrogenic factors. The offending agents cause inflammation in the periradicular tissues resulting in pain and swelling. The extent of inflammation is proportional to the extent of injury caused to the periradicular tissues. Proper diagnosis and management of the flare up must be affected by the dentist. This review highlights the various causes, mechanisms and treatment of flare-ups.
