Endodontic therapy can land up in failures leading to intra-operative and post-operative pain due to multiple factors. Managing such pain becomes a crucial factor for success of endodontic treatment and patient satisfaction in dental practice. Various treatment modalities are utilized to manage such conditions such as de-occluding from antagonist, re-instrumentation, cortical trephination, incision followed by drainage, administrating systemic antibiotics and analgesics. Transformations in the regimen of therapy to has evolved from radical to conservative mode which nowadays utilize prolonged contact of the analgesic, antibiotic or anesthetic agents to alleviate intra and/or post-operative endodontic pain through controlled drug release system minimizing the risk of systemic as well as local tissue toxicity, and at the same time providing maximum benefits to the patients. Thus, aim of this paper is to review and highlight various controlled drug delivery techniques to manage intra and post-operative endodontic pain.
