Abstract

Aim:  The aim of the present study was to compare and evaluate the effectiveness of insulin syringe and conventional syringe in reducing pain perception during while giving LA using local infiltration technique.


Materials and Methods: forty children in the age group 6 to 10 years who required LA administration for dental treatment were selected for this study. Patients were randomly divided in two equally group i.e. group I- Conventional syringe group and group II – Insulin syringe group. Pain perception was evaluated using Wong–Baker face scale in both the groups. t- test was used to evaluate the differences in mean pain scores between the groups.


Result:  Statistical analysis of the measurements were made using t-test showed that local anesthetic injection using insulin syringe resulted in significantly less pain (p < 0.05) in comparison with compared to conventional syringe.


Conclusion:  It can be concluded that insulin syringes can be used as an effective means to reduce the intensity of pain during local anesthetic injection in pediatric dental patients.
