ABSTRACT

Aim: To assess the relationship of body hydration levels and its impact on pain control during endodontic therapy.

Methods: 500 patients were included who required endodontic therapy for irreversible pulpitis. Patient’s body weight was measured in kilograms, while their hydration was calculated the number of glasses of water consumed daily. The pain was measured using the numeric pain for the level of pain perceived during endodontic treatment. Data collection and analysis was done using SPSS version 23.

Results: A significant correlations exist between patient’s pain perception during endodontic therapy and their body hydration levels. Our findings suggest that pain levels during endodontic procedures can be reduced with adequate body hydration.
Conclusion: Pre-operative assessment of patient’s hydration can help reduce pain during endodontic treatment. Hence, it is important to consider adequately water intake to reduce pain during the endodontic treatment.

Keywords: Water intake, body hydration, endodontic treatment, pain.
