Active Comparator: Standard information
This group is given anesthetics and standard information before dental treatment about the anesthetics.
Other: anesthetics and standard information before dental treatment
The standard information is short and concise, telling in neutral words what to expect.
Experimental: Extended information
This group is given anesthetics and extended information before dental treatment about the anesthetics.
Other: anesthetics and extended information before dental treatment
The extended information is a comprehensive explanation about what to expect of the treatment and the anesthetic method, phrased in positive words and opening up for questions after information is given.
- Reduction of pain [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]Pain intensity and pain discomfort will be measured by a VAS (Visual Analog Scale). The patients will report their experience of these factors verbally, four times during the treatment session.
- Reduction of stress [ Time Frame: One hour ]Stress is also measured using the VAS, i.e. using the same method as for pain. Stress or sympathetic activation is measured by using scin conductance on fingers (V-Amp (Brain Products, Munich, Germany).
