The participants were recruited by adopting a purposive sampling technique. Data were obtained by self-structured socio-demographic data and standardized simple descriptive pain scales. Result: The mean pre-test score is 2.46 and the post-test mean score is 0.72. The mean difference is 1.74 which indicates that there is a decrease in the pain score.The pre and post-intervention pain scores were assessed using a Z value that is statistically significant and higher than the table value Z = 4.62 at a threshold of P > 0.05. Conclusion: Ice massage is a safe, non-invasive, and natural way to relieve pain. Therefore, it lessens the amount of suffering endured by dental patients and protects them from analgesic side effects and medication overdose.
