A comparison of two anesthesia methods for the surgical removal of maxillary third molars: PSA nerve block technique vs. local infiltration technique.

Al-Delayme RE - J Clin Exp Dent (2014)

Bottom Line: The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of PSA block injection with infiltration technique regarding local anesthesia for surgical extraction of upper third molar.The both tested methods have the same statistic equivalence for the surgical extraction of maxillary third molars.Key words:Surgical extraction, maxillary third molars, PSA block, infiltration.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of PSA block injection with infiltration technique regarding local anesthesia for surgical extraction of upper third molar.

Material and methods: A prospective, intra individual, single-blind randomized controlled trial was designed to study the severity of pain during injection and after surgical extraction of the bilaterally and symmetrically similar upper third molar in a total of 53 patients, in addition to evaluating the need to repeat the injection and requirement of post operative anti-inflammatory tablets.

Result: Although the average pain score for all studied times in PSA side was lower than the average pain score in infiltration technique, repeated statistical measures demonstrated that no significant pain reduction occurred in the two techniques.

Conclusion: The both tested methods have the same statistic equivalence for the surgical extraction of maxillary third molars. Key words:Surgical extraction, maxillary third molars, PSA block, infiltration.

Figure 3: Frequency of needing to repeat the injections.

Mentions: The protocol of study also involved assessing NSAID intake in the first three hours. The mean consumption of ibuprofen in number of tablets is noted in Fig. 4. The difference was statistically significant between two techniques at 1, 2 and 3hour intervals post-operatively F= 5.480. Significance =0.020 (p<0.05, Fig. 3).the number of ibuprofen consumption was less in PSA group this because of long duration effect of this technique.
