Key takeaways:

  • Children provided with audiovisual distraction during dental treatment exhibit cooperative behavior and have reduced anxiety levels.
  • Even though the children did not report any differences, indirect measures of anxiety such pulse rate and blood pressure readings indicated lower anxiety levels.
