NobelGuide™ influence in the perception of postoperative pain


, : NobelGuide™ influence in the perception of postoperative pain. Minerva Stomatologica: -

Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the perception of pain after Computer-aided-implantology Implant Surgery (NobelGuideTM, Nobel Biocare, Göteborg, Sweden) compared to the conventional implant surgery. Methods: Eighteen patients from dental and maxillo-facial clinic of Policlinico G. B. Rossi (Verona, Italy) have been recruited: 9 were treated with the NobelGuide™ Technique, and 9 with the conventional one (approved by Local Ethical Committee) After the operation, painkillers (Ibuprofene tablets of 400 mg) were prescribed to the patients. Patients were asked to answer a questionnaire during the postoperative days and to report on the Visual Analogue Scale form (VAS), the intensity of pain and the number of painkillers used. Results: The VAS mean one day after the operation (peak of maximum pain) was 47.22 for the conventional technique, and 12.77 for the NobelGuide™ technique, and also the number of painkillers assumed is smaller for the NobelGuide™ technique. The 5th day after the operation all the patients treated with the NobelGuide™ Technique stopped painkillers and nobody felt pain, while the patients treated with the conventional technique felt more pain and for a longer period. They also took painkillers until the 7th day. Conclusion: Pain is minor and disappears more quickly with the Nobelguide™ Implant Surgery compared with the conventional surgical technique. Nobelguide™ Implant Surgery can reduce hospitalization improving the compliance of odontophobic patients towards implant therapy.
