Abstract

The study was conducted among 50 children in the age group of 8-9 yrs. to evaluate the anxiety producing dental procedures in the dental operatory viz. waiting at the reception area, examination in the dental chairs, scaling, polishing, cavity cutting, injection, extraction and post extraction period. The pulse rates were very high during local anaesthesia, extraction, waiting at reception and examination. A significant correlation was observed between the pulse rate and blood pressure.
