Abstract
The aim of this study was to compare magnitude of changes in blood pressure (BP) of fifth year dental students across four different dental procedures (Periodontic, Exodontic, Pedodontic and Prosthodontic) and interpret it as the amount of stress. Blood pressure was recorded before and after each procedure, and the difference was calculated, studied and compared between male and female. The response of the BP of every student in each procedure was compared with the other procedures. The results showed there were greater changes in BP in Exodontic and Pedodontic in both male and female. And there were no significant differences in the responses between the two genders. As a conclusion, Exodontic and Pedodontic carry greater stress in relation to the Peridontic and Prostodontic procedures.
