CORNEJO FERRADAS, Milagros del Pilar; ASMAT ABANTO, Angel Steven  y  RUIZ REYES, Segundo Guillermo. Post Exodontia Analgesic Effect of Morinda citrifolia (Noni): A Randomized Clinical Trial in Parallel Groups. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.3, pp.433-438. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2014000300018.

The objective of this study was to compare the post exodontia analgesic effect of the Morinda citrifolia (Noni) extract of 30 g vs. 15 g. This randomized parallel clinical trial, was developed in the Dental Clinic of Universidad Privada Antenor Orrego (Trujillo, Peru). Patients who required simple dental extraction, were randomized into three groups of 17 subjects each one: Noni at doses of 30 g, 15 g and control group (ibuprofen). The procedure was standardized and the analgesic effect was evaluated by Visual Analogue Scale at 2, 8, 24 and 48 hours after the first dose of the drug. Statistical analysis was performed using Student 's t test for comparison of means with p<0.005. There is no difference in the post exodontia analgesic effect between Noni extract 30 g and 15 g, at 2 (p=0.09), 8 (p=0.22), 24 (p=0.61) and 48 hours (p=0.67). Both doses were similar to or higher than control. The extract of Noni has post exodontia analgesic effect.
