Background: Painless tooth extraction by Jalandharabandha yoga (without administration of local anaesthesia) is practised widely in different parts of India by many Ayurvedic Dentists& Traditional Vaidyas. This yogic technique of teeth extraction is very brisk, less traumatic, very minimal invasive & economical. Though this yogic technique of tooth extraction is popularly accepted among patients its proper scientific evaluation is not done so far. So current study is taken up to evaluate the effect of Jalandharabandha yoga in tooth extraction.
Aims & Objectives: To evaluate the pain threshold & anaesthetic effect of jalandharabandha yoga in tooth extraction
Materials and Methods:A total of 60 patients were selected for the study who fulfilled the inclusion criteria and consented for the study.Among 60 patients, 26 patients on maxillary region & 34 patients on mandibular region were assessed for pain threshold & anaesthetic effect at rest (without Jalandhara Bandha Yoga) & during Jalandhara Bandha Yoga, before the extraction of teeth.
Observation and Results: The result shows statistically significant difference in painthreshold between alveolar process of maxilla, intermaxillary suture, ramus of mandible, body of mandible before and during Jalandharabandha with P value <0.001. Were as pain threshold in body of maxilla, alveolar process of mandible was statistically insignificant with P value 0.144 & 0.292 respectively. Though these two values are statistically insignificant the mean value which was 1.65 & 1.75 of body of maxilla & alveolar process of mandible at rest has increased to 1.8 & 1.89 respectively during Jalandhara Bandha.By looking at the mean ranks of anaesthetic effect it is inferred that the mean remains the same (as 0) before and during the process for lip numbness, soft tissue response and pulpal anaesthesia. Hence no difference found before and during the Jalandharabandha with respect to anaesthetic effect.
Conclusions: There was increase in the pain threshold of both Maxillary & Mandibular region during extraction of teeth by Jalandharabandha yoga. This helped patients to undergo tooth extractionsuccessfully without anaesthesia by this yogic technique. However eitherthere was lip numbness or soft tissue anesthesia or pulpal anesthesia during Jalandharabandha yoga in tooth extraction.
