  The purpose of this study is to compare the pain-reducing efficacy of Spilanthes acmella extract and ketorolac Tromethamine when used as an intracanal medication, and oral ibuprofen when administered orally. A total of 30 patients diagnosed with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis as determined by patient history and with electric pulp tester (Analytic Technology, Redmond WA) and thermal testing, were included in this study. Patients were randomly assigned into 1 of 3 groups of Oral ibuprofen, ketorolac tromethamine and Spilanthes acmella.

  The root canal treatment was performed in two appointments. The first appointment consisted of cleansing and shaping of the canal/s, using standard aseptic technique. After complete cleansing and shaping, the Canals were dried and in groups 2 and 3, Spilanthes acmella herbal extract (US Herb Pharm) and ketorolac tromethamine was placed intracanal. Patients in group1 received oral ibuprofen (600 rags). All teeth were closed with a sterile cotton pellet and IRM (Intermediate Restorative Material, L. D. Caulk Division, DENTSPLY International, and Milford, DE).The patients were asked to evaluate their pretreatment pain with a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) to determine if any relationship would be found to exist between pretreatment and post treatment pain. Each patient was dismissed with a VAS to fill out at 6, 12, 24, and 48 h after initiation of therapy. Statistical analysis was done using an analysis of variance (ANOVA) and Post-Hoc Tukey test (bonferroni test).
