Can Music Help Overcome Dental Anxiety?


Relaxing in a comfortable chair, wrapped in an afghan and listening to Barry Manilow may not be how one envisions a dental visit. However, for fans of the pop star, this specialized care helps some patients soothe dental anxiety. Many dentists are turning to music, television, pillows, blankets, aromatherapy, calming office decor and even hand massages and virtual-reality glasses to help patients overcome dental anxiety.


New amenities may help create a calming, friendly environment, yet studies prove that the most important factor in overcoming dental anxiety is good dentist-patient communication.
