Ibuprofen, nonselective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), is one of the most commonly prescribed analgesics for managing musculoskeletal, orofacial, and postoperative pain after periodontal therapy. Although considered as one of the safest analgesic agents, the onset of adverse drug reactions after ibuprofen intake has been recently observed. The present report aims to highlight the development of localized swellings in the temporal and frontal forehead following intake of 200 mg of ibuprofen after routine oral prophylaxis. This is the first case report to document the development of an adverse drug reaction with ibuprofen in a patient following a routine dental procedure. The article also aim to comprehensively describe the most appropriate and effective method to diagnose, manage, and prevent NSAIDs-induced adverse drug reactions in routine dental practice.
