The article presents information on a dental research study which examined the relationship of postobturation pain to diagnostic and clinical factors. Under the study, the presence of post-endodontic obturation pain was evaluated twice, at one day and four days. The subjects for the study were two-hundred patients who had a variety of endodontic conditions and fulfilling the criteria for inclusion. The incidence of postobturation pain was analyzed with respect to age, gender, tooth location, original endodontic diagnosis, pretreatment pain, interappointment pain, number of appointments, and level of obturation. The study found that forty-seven of the 186 patients had reportable pain after 24 hours.
