Use of lidocaine spray in paedodontology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The author is of the opinion that in many pedodontic interventions it is necessary to apply surface anesthesia. He applied a spray containing 10% of lidocaine (EGYT) in the treatment of 522 children aged between 1 and 14 yr. Compared to anesthetics containing a tetracaine base the lidocaine spray has the advantage of lower toxicity, good penetration and no undesirable side effect. The maximum of anesthesia is reached within 2 min following spraying and extends to a depth of 2 to 2.5 mm. In addition to the anesthetization of the mucosa, the direct anesthetic effect on the pulp was tried in connection with the vital amputation of deciduous molars. In the majority of cases good anesthesia was achieved. The psychic effect of the lidocaine spray is of great importance in pedodontology.
