ObjectiveIn dental applications, as in all other medical applications, pain needs to be prevented or at least controlled. The use of the tooth as a model for studying pain mechanisms is well established. In the current study, we aimed to evaluate and compare the analgesic effects of gabapentin and lornoxicam, respectively, vs a placebo for postendodontic treatment pain.
