Abstract

Introduction: In the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery, the removal of impacted third molars is considered a routine procedure. However, it is also associated with variable post-operative consequences like pain, swelling and trismus. Corticosteroids are some of the most common pharmaceutical agents employed to manage these complications.
 
Aim: The aim of the present study was to assess preemptively the effectiveness of oral corticosteroids used in controlling the above sequalae after third molar surgery.
 
Methods: A PubMed, Medline, Scopus, Sciencedirect, EBSCO and Google scholar search was carried out of all controlled clinical trials on the eff ects of oral corticosteroids on pain, swelling and trismus aft er lower third molar surgery. The review was limited to studies published over the last 10 years (2008-2017).
 
Results: The most relevant randomized controlled trials were selected from among 32 articles.
 
Conclusions: The results of this study suggest that a single preoperative weight-dependent administration of oral corticosteroids is a safe and effective concept for diminishing postoperative discomfort, pain intensity, and the total intake of analgesics aft er third molar surgery.
