Lathwal G, Pandit IK, Gugnani N, Gupta M - Int J Clin Pediatr Dent (2015)

Bottom Line: Ice cone has shown lower mean scores (p < 0.001) as compared to benzocaine and refrigerant whereas no significant difference was observed between refrigerant and benzocaine (p > 0.05) on both the scales.Ice cone had shown significantly higher efficacy as compared to benzocaine and refrigerant.Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2015;8(2):119-122.

ABSTRACT

Unlabelled: Topical anesthesia is widely advocated in pediatric dentistry practice to reduce pain and anxiety produced by administration of local anesthesia. Cryoanesthesia to lessen the injection pain has also been reported to be promising. However, sparse literature reports exist regarding clinical efficacy of these agents.

Aim: The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of the refrigerant (1,1,1,3,3-pentafluoropropane/1,1,1,2-tetrafluo-roethane), benzocaine and ice on the pain perception during intraoral injection using visual analog scale (VAS) and sound, eye, motor (SEM) scale.

Study design: In this Spit-mouth design study, a total of 160 patients between the age group of 5 and 8 years were selected and were randomly divided into two equal groups having 80 patients in each group.

Results: Ice cone has shown lower mean scores (p < 0.001) as compared to benzocaine and refrigerant whereas no significant difference was observed between refrigerant and benzocaine (p > 0.05) on both the scales.

Conclusion: Ice cone had shown significantly higher efficacy as compared to benzocaine and refrigerant. How to cite this article: Lathwal G, Pandit IK, Gugnani N, Gupta M.

Figure 2: Visual analog scale for the assessment of child’s pain

Mentions: In all sites of both the groups after the application of anesthetic agent, administration of local anesthetic injection with a 1 inch, 25 mm gauge needle was done. During the insertion of needle, the patient’s behaviour was evaluated for pain perception using sound, eye, motor (SEM) scale (Table 2) and visual analog scale (VAS) by the operator (Fig. 1).
