Abstract

Dexamethasone can reduce post-operative pain and swelling. An appropriate administration of dexamethasone for dental surgical procedures may be local submucosal infiltration. Local delivery may produce a faster onset with more drug at the desired site of action. A single submucosal dose will unlikely produce side effects.
