    Digital Intraosseous Anesthesia in Pediatric Dental Practice: Why and How?

    Effective pain management is crucial in pediatric dentistry to ensure a positive experience for children and successful treatment outcomes. Conventional local anesthesia, while commonly used, can indeed pose challenges in pediatric patients. Currently, the dental landscape has transformed due to technological advances and the introduction of new techniques, notably the rise of digital intraosseous anesthesia. This method provides a more efficient and less discomforting local anesthesia experience, especially beneficial for pediatric patients. Computer-Controlled Local Anesthesia Delivery use computer technology to control the rate and pressure of anesthetic delivery, making injections more comfortable and precise. The combination of Intraosseous Anesthesia (IOA) and Computer-Controlled Local Anesthetic Delivery (C-CLAD) brings several advantages. It is a quick and highly effective method, known for providing comfort, making it a preferred choice for both children and adults. The effects last long enough for brief treatments. This technique involves three simple steps, aiming to deliver local anesthetic solutions directly into the cancellous bone near the targeted tooth. Importantly, the anesthesia is localized to the tooth, avoiding impact on surrounding soft tissues and reducing complications such as lip or tongue biting. This presentation will explore the essential steps of the technique, practical administration aspects, and the benefits, along with a focus on patient perception.
