The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of prior receipt of technical information and sensory perception and responses to patients' pain. Participate in this study 90 patients aged between 14 and 24 years, which require extraction of at least one third molar dental session. Patients will be randomly assigned to three groups (Control, Experimental Experimental Technical and Sensory). The experimental design is divided into the following phases: Pre-surgical, post-surgical I, II, III, IV and suture removal. The pre-surgical procedure involves an initial interview with open and closed questions about health habits, surgical experience and use of medication, administer questionnaires and pain scales and presentation of video information (only for the experimental groups). In moments Postsurgical I, II, III and IV is the application of the McGill Pain Questionnaire and VAS scale features, and the last three times the patient will respond to the instruments at home. At the time of suture removal will be collected and assessment tools will be applied to a tool for assessing the informative video. Based on the evaluations and interviews intended to identify possible changes that the submission of prior information can cause the patient's perception of pain.
