Clinical Bottom Line Based on moderate quality evidence, using 20 mL of cold (2.5 degrees C) saline irrigation as a final irrigant during root canal therapy significantly reduces the intensity of postoperative pain at 6 and 24 hours. However, no significant difference in pain was noted at 48 hours, 72 hours, or 7 days following root canal therapy.

Clinical Bottom Line There are no studies that directly compare naproxen and ibuprofen analgesic efficacy following non-surgical root canal therapy, i.e., their relative effectiveness. However, the effectiveness of NSAIDs is well-documented in several endodontic studies using ibuprofen as the prototypical drug. Given the similar mechanisms of action, these two drugs are expected to be similarly effective. Nonetheless
