Music Is The Remedy of Dental Anxiety and Fear

Dental care anxiety is an important condition that is observed frequently in children, young people, and adults and affects the duration of treatment quite badly. Okan University Dentistry Department Endodontics Specialist Assist. Assoc. Dr. Burçin Arıcan Öztürk said that a music at the appropriate volume that motivates the patient would be effective in reducing the patient’s anxiety.

“In our dental clinics, more ambient music is used. The music played with the headset causes the patient to be disconnected from the environment and unable to communicate with the physician. This can increase the anxiety. In ambient music, latin, soft or piano music is the most preferred ones. In the study, it has been seen that the music that the patient chooses, is more effective in anxiety. While music is highly effective in individuals with moderate dental anxiety, the most effective method for over-anxious individuals is frequent breaks. Music listening periods should not be as short as 5 minutes. The height of the voice should be adjusted to the patient’s wish. The patient should listen to music not only during the procedure but also in the waiting room.”
