A comparative study of the effect of chlorhexidine gel and hyaluronic acid gel on post-operative complications following mandibuthirdmolars surgery (Pain, Edema)

AUTHOR(S): Afnan AL Hariri and Dr. Majed Al Ajamy
ABSTRACT:Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Hyaluronic acid and Chlorhexidine 0.2% on pain and edema after impacted lower third molars surgery.
Materials and Methods: This clinical study was carried at oral and maxillofacial surgery department at Hama University. This study included random sample of 40 cases of impacted lower third molars. The ages of patients were between 18-25 years. The sample was divided into two groups: First group: 20 impacted lower third molars was surgically extracted. Hyaluronic acid 0.2 % was applied in the alveolar cavity with surgical suture. Second group: 20 impacted lower third molars was surgically extracted. Chlorhexidine 0.2% was applied in the alveolar cavity with surgical suture.
Results: There was significant difference between two groups in edema (p<0.05) on the 2nd and 3rd days for the first group (Hyaluronic acid 0.2 %) while there was no significant difference between two groups in edema on the 7th day after surgery. There was significant difference between two groups in pain (p<0.05) on the 1st and 2nd days for the first group (Hyaluronic acid 0.2 %), while there was no significant difference between two groups in pain on the 3rd day after surgery.
Conclusion: The study showed that both of Hyaluronic acid and Chlorhexidine 0.2% have a positive effect on controlling pain and edema after surgical extraction, with preference for Hyaluronic over Chlorhexidine 0.2%.
