NEWCASTLE, UK: Researchers from Newcastle University have
developed a dental injection system that could reduce patients’ pain
when being injected. The system, a modification of a dental local
anaesthetic
cartridge that allows a buffer solution to be mixed with the
anaesthetic, was recently recognised with a Medical Futures Innovation
Award, a European showcase of early-stage innovation in health care.
