Needless to say, children tend to dread local anaesthesia. The dentist may deal with this in various ways. He/she must win the trust of the child, speak in a manner the child understands, use an injection technique that is effective and does not cause the child any pain and know and prevent potential complications. Finally, it is of major importance that the dentist treats the child with empathy.
