Abstract

Iontophoresis has a wide range of application in dentistry, one of which is to produce a non invasive technique of analgesia. With the avoidance of needle, in this technique better patient management and good doctor-patient relationship can be built. This study provides an insight into the comparative evaluation of 2%, 4% and 6% lignocaine hydrochloride (plain) in providing analgesia iontophoretically while extraction of deciduous teeth. Patient satisfaction was seen when higher drug concentration and longer duration of iontophoresis was applied.
