Awareness on Intradermal Injection among Dentists
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
An intradermal injection may be given for diagnostic purposes checking for allergy, lymphogranuloma inguinale or tuberculosis and for treating diseases like vitiligo. Due to the limited blood supply of that skin layer, medication injected into the dermis is absorbed slowly. The aim of the study is to determine the level of knowledge and awareness on the use of intradermal injection in dental practice by the dentists. The study was formulated as a questionnaire-based observational study comprising 100 participants. All the subjects were requested to respond to a list of questions regarding the intradermal injections and their use in dental practice by the dentists. More than 88% of the dentists are aware of the intradermal injection and they prefer them during the clinical practice for diagnostic purposes. The intradermal injection of lidocaine reduces the pain in patients and dentists are aware of its use in dental practice.
