- Similar Initial Pain Levels: The study found that females with and without anemia experienced similar levels of pain 24 hours after root canal surgery.
- Greater Pain Reduction in Non-Anemic Patients: Patients without anemia experienced a greater reduction in pain at 48 and 72 hours post-surgery, indicating that anemia is associated with prolonged pain in the days following the procedure.
- Anemia as a Risk Factor: Anemia was identified as a risk factor for post-endodontic pain, emphasizing the importance of diagnosing and treating anemia to enhance the quality of patient care.
- High Incidence of Postendodontic Pain: The study revealed a high incidence of postendodontic pain (80%) in both anemic and non-anemic groups, which decreased over time, reaching minimal levels within seven days.
- Impact of Pulp Condition: The condition of the pulp (vitality and necrosis) in mandibular premolars and molars significantly affected the pain levels before and after treatment, with patients reporting greater pain in necrotic teeth after 24 hours.
