The Concept of Preemptive Analgesia in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Surgical removal of impacted teeth is routinely performed in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery. As a result of this procedure, postoperative complications associated with inflammation may occur due to the injury to surrounding tissues. Although these complications are transient, they can affect a patient’s quality of life by causing discomfort and morbidity.

It is of great interest to minimize these complications to improve patient comfort and satisfaction and reduce the need for additional follow-up visits. Precise surgical techniques and perioperative strategies can minimize the frequency and severity of these complications
