[This document has been captured as part of the JMID-section for Grey-literature. Grey (or gray) literature refers to informally published written material that may be difficult to trace via conventional databases and/or journals as it is not formally published or is not widely accessible. However, Grey literature may still be an important source of information. Examples of grey literature include e.g: patents, reports, working documents or unpublished manuscripts]

A brief listing of the merits of the ART approach is given: Reduction of dental anxiety among patients; more fillings are placed in relation to tooth extractions when patients are less afraid; the more ART fillings are placed in primary teeth the higher the decrease of more costly composite resin fillings placed in primary teeth (the more cost-effective the oral health service); some barriers to ART implementations are presented.
