ConclusionWe found that there is a lack of high-quality evidence-based studies on the pharmacological treatment of PTH. Future studies are highly needed and must emphasize open-label studies with rigorous methodology or RCTs with a placebo-controlled design.

Due to the pre-experimental study design, our results must be interpreted with caution.
Trauma or injury to the dentition and supporting tissues is associated with pain and discomfort, as expected, that may present immediately, shortly afterwards, or within a few days. Pain is an essential response to injury because it allows the organism to develop avoidance behavior to potential threats and helps the organism to avoid usage of the injured organ during the healing process. Not only does external trauma induce pain, but also essential invasive dental procedures such as extractions, dental implant insertions, root canal treatments, and oral surgeries are accompanied by similar post-surgical (post-traumatic) pain.
Discussion: The findings suggest that a score of ≥22 on the PCS should alert clinicians to the possibility that patients might also be experiencing clinically significant symptoms of depression or PTSD. Greater attention to the detection and treatment of mental health conditions associated with whiplash injury might contribute to more positive recovery outcomes.
