Numerous hypothetical mechanisms responsible for pain and swelling in endodontic flare ups are presented, even though these mechanisms may be interrelated. This review article also underlines the various treatment modalities for relief of pain and swelling in such situations, including pre-medication, drainage establishment, relief of occlusion, intracanal and systemic medication.
