A visit to a dentist can elicit anxiety and cause disruptive behavior in children. A new study reveals that watching cartoon during dental procedures can help to calm down them.

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.
  • Further research is required to fully understand the usefulness of the audiovisual distraction tools in reducing disruptive behavior and lessening anxiety.

During treatment, the children in the distraction group exhibited significantly less anxiety and showed more cooperation than those in the control group, particularly during the local anaesthetic injection.
