|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Irreversible Pulpitis||Drug: Ketorolac Tromethamine Drug: Placebo||Not Applicable|
- Patients will be clinically and radiographically examined and their eligibility will be assessed and preoperative pain will be measured. Eligible patients will be treated in one visit.
- Patients will be randomly assigned to one of 2 groups: experimental group (taking a 10 mg tablet of ketorolac) and the control group (taking a placebo tablet). Each tablet will be taken one hour before starting treatment. The patient's pain will be assessed before local anesthetic adminstration. After 15 minutes of the initial inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB), the teeth will be examined using a cold pulp sensitivity test; in case of no or mild pain, the treatment will be initiated.
- During root canal treatment, no to mild pain response will be considered success. In case of failure, supplemental anesthesia will be administrated.
- Postoperative pain will be assessed 6, 12, 24 and 48 hours after treatment. The number of patients who will require rescue analgesic medication within the 48 hours postoperatively will be counted.

|Official Title:||Effect of Ketorolac Premedication on Anesthetic Efficiency of Inferior Alveolar Nerve Block, Pre-Treatment and Post-Endodontic Pain in Teeth With Irreversible Pulpitis: A Randomized Controlled Double Blinded Trial|
|Study Start Date :||January 2017|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||October 2017|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||January 2018|
Experimental: ketorolac tromethamine
One tablet of Ketorolac tromethamine 10-mg one hour before endodontic treatment
Drug: Ketorolac Tromethamine
A 10 mg tablet of the medication will be given one hour before starting the root canal treatment
Other Name: ketolac, toradol
Placebo Comparator: placebo tablet
One tablet of a placebo one hour before endodontic treatment
The placebo given as a tablet one hour before staring the root canal treatment
- Anesthetic efficiency [ Time Frame: Intraoperative (During endodontic treatment) ]Pain during endodontic treatment will be assessed using a numerical rating scale (NRS). No or mild pain response will be considered success.
- Postoperative pain [ Time Frame: At 6,12, 24, 48 hours after root canal treatment ]Postoperative pain will be measured using a numerical rating scale (NRS)
- Number of patients requiring rescue analgesic. [ Time Frame: Within 48 hours after endodontic treatment ]Number of patients requiring rescue analgesic within 48 hours after endodontic treatment
