This study had the objective to evaluate the homeopathic action of Arnica montana 6 cH and placebo on edema, mouth opening (trismus) and pain in patients submitted to extraction of bilaterally impacted lower third molars. The experiment was carried out as a crossover and double-blind study. The data showed that edema was significantly reduced by the treatment with Arnica montana 6 cH (p<0.05) and did not demonstrate significant effect on trismus and pain as compared to control group.
