Methods. A total of 100 patients of both sexes, aged between 13 and 65, were monitored after extraction of impacted 3rd molar.
Patients were treated with flurbiprofen SR 200 mg/day for five days and were controlled on the 2nd and 5th day after surgery. The following parameters were evaluated: painful symptoms, objective examination of mucosa and fever.
