Abstract
The current study was aimed at assessing the efficacy of Piroxicam verses diclofenac sodium as an analgesic after removal of third molars when given post operatively. The study was a comparative evaluation between two drugs.

A prospectiverandomized study conducted with 30 patients that required removal of mesio angularly impacted mandibular third molar. The systematical statistical analysis was performed after the data collection was done.
Results- Pain intensity at the postoperative 15 mints, 30 mints, 45 mints,60mints, 2nd, 3rd, 7th day postoperative was less in Piroxicam group than Diclofenac and there was significant difference seen statistically (p<0.001).Swelling and Trismus were not statistically significant, however there were significant reduction in Swelling and Trismus on 2nd day.
Conclusion-The ease of use and reduction in dosage of the analgesics than the conventionally used NSAIDs and increased patient compliance makes Piroxicam an advantageous drug used in minor dental surgeries.
