About

The aim of this retrospective study was to compare immediate postoperative pain scores and the need for rescue analgesia in children who underwent pulpotomies and general restorative treatment and those who underwent general restorative treatment only, all under general anaesthesia.

Full description

Ninety patients aged between 3 and 7 years who underwent full mouth dental rehabilitation under general anaesthesia were enrolled in the study and reviewed. The experimental group included patients who were treated with at least one pulpotomy, and the control group was treated with dental fillings only. The Wong-Baker FACES scale was used to evaluate self-reported pain and the need for rescue analgesia. The data were analysed using the Kruskal-Wallis test, two sample t- tests, chi-square tests and Pearson's correlation analysis.
