BackgroundLonger and more complex dental procedures could negatively affect patient's acceptability of minimal invasive techniques. Aims and MethodsTherefore, this short communication aims to show the preliminary findings regarding children's discomfort reported after some minimal invasive treatments in treating initial caries lesions on approximal surfaces: flossing instruction, silver diamine fluoride (SDF) application and caries resin infiltration. ResultsChildren allocated in the infiltration group showed higher levels of discomfort than those in the SDF and control groups. ConclusionsThese findings suggest that the simplest interventions for approximal initial caries lesions cause less discomfort for children and should be applied where possible. (AU)
