New Cochrane Protocol – April 2014



The aim of this new Cochrane protocol is to evaluate the effects of methods for acceptance of local anaesthetic in children during dental treatment.

As the protocol notes three factors have been considered to influence discomfort during delivery of local anaesthetic:

  1. factors related to the patient,
  2. equipment factors and
  3. aspects that are under control of the dentist

This review is planning to focus on the second and third factors.
