Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of audio-visual distraction eyewear and computer-controlled delivery system during extraction procedure.

Materials and Methodology: This study includes 40 children, aged between 4 to 9 years. Children were randomly divided equally into two groups as I and II. Modified Child Dental Anxiety Scale was used for assessment of anxiety before treatment. After the procedure, children were asked to rate their pain while treatment on the Wong Bakers’ faces pain scale. Changes in blood oxygen saturation level and heart rate were noted in every 10 min.

Results: Statistically significant difference was seen for the values of heart rate, anxiety and pain severity between the groups (p < 0.01).

Conclusion: The use of audio-visual distraction eyewear and computer controlled local anaesthesia delivery system is a good option for effective behaviour management technique for invasive procedures like extraction in young children.
