The patients, who underwent a medical examination at the Department of Oral Surgery, Okayama University Dental School, were examined on antalgic effect of BAXO (general term: piroxicam). As a result, the total cases numbered 95, with 34 adopted cases and 61 exceptions. Among the adopted cases, there were 31 cases where there was a antalgic effect. Moreover, among the exceptional cases, there were 20 cases where the placebo effect was found, and 41 cases with no pain or, if any, in a slight degree, who did not take either medicine. As for the antalgic effect of BAXO on the pain after teeth extractions and small oral surgeries, there were 31 cases where the effect was observed, and 3 cases without any effect. It can be considered that this medicine would have high antalgic effect and be very useful in the field of oral surgery.
