To evaluate the pain level during infiltration anesthesia with needle free jet injectors in pediatric patients.
38 cooperative healthy child aged 4–7 years were selected to be anesthetized with both methods of injection, the needles jet injector and the conventional infiltration technique. The selected group was divided randomly into two groups of 19 child each, control group I (conventional needle) and study group II (jet injector). The pain levels were measured according to Wong-Baker Faces Pain (Rating) scale (WBFPS), to determine the level of acceptance of each method. The measuring of the pain level was done after administration of anesthesia with the help of parents, each child selects the score which determine his/her own experience.
Jet injector showed a lower significant level of pain during infiltration anesthesia in children (P
Jet injector method is more accepted than traditional infiltration needle technique during infiltration and it promises to be a good alternative to needle injection during anesthesia in children.
