PROTECTION OF HEALING SOCKET WITH ATTACHABLE INTRAORAL DRESSING
Objective: was to assess the efficacy of intraoral attachable hydrophilic dressing after single and multiple teeth extractions wounds compared with the extraction sockets healing by 30 minutes packing and secondary healing. Methods: The study sample included 50 patients (14 females and 36 males) with age range from 20 years old to 77 years old all Iraqi nationality. The Ora Aids attachable intraoral wound dressing was placed in one group (cases group, n = 25, 9 females and 14 males) immediately after extraction of teeth parallel with the other groups (control group, n = 25, 5 females & 12 males) received no dressing after extraction. Pain assessment is taken from the patient through the visual analog scale (VAS) is 10 cm horizontal line with anchor statements on the left (no pain) and on the right (unbearable pain). Result: The mean and average of VAS indicating less pain with protection of extraction socket with attachable dressing) over control group, while the mean and average of post-operative bleeding and healing of the socket show no difference between the two groups. Conclusion: Ora-aid can be applied in many treatment cases, such as implant surgery, tooth extraction, periodontal treatment & surgery, ulcers, orthodontia and most oral wounds. Such patients will obtain great improvement in their comfort, reduce postoperative pain and hemorrhage, protect intraoral wounds from food, bacteria and cigarette smoke and promotes healing after oral surgery and treatment. There are no major complications or morbidity associated with the use of ora- aids in this study except in adhering time that are related to the educated level of the patients
