Abstract
This study examined the effects of general anesthesia on the postoperative pain level after third molar extractions compared to local anesthesia. This retrospective study included patients who underwent four simultaneous third molar extractions under general or local anesthesia and had records of their postoperative pain levels (visual analog scale, VAS). The pain level was determined in the early (Postoperative day; POD < #3) and late (POD #3-7) periods. The operation time and recently modified difficulty index were analyzed to validate the homogenous condition of the extraction. Of the 227 male inpatients (aged 20.9 ± 1.3 years), 172 and 55 patients underwent third molar extractions under local and general anesthesia, respectively. The age and difficulty index were distributed equally, but the operation time was longer in general anesthesia than in local anesthesia (p < 0.001). The early and late periods featured similar pain outcomes. The operation time correlated with the total periods with a correlation coefficient of 0.271 (p < 0.001). In conclusion, the postoperative pain following whole third molar extraction was related to the operation time rather than the anesthetic methods.
