ABSTRACT

Aim: To evaluate the different types of audiovisual aids available and their effects on convincing patients for a dental treatment. Background: There are various factors that may influence the behavior of a reluctant patient towards a dental treatment. It is very important for a dentist to understand the theories behind such behavior and develop ways to overcome this condition. Unlike the existing educational materials, audiovisual aids provide a comprehensive, self-directed, evidence-based approach to the promotion of oral health. This study provides information on the various form of audiovisual aids such as DVD-video containing evidence-based information about oral health care and prevention-based on the provided guidelines as means of helping patients to understand the whole concept of a dental treatment and its importance on the overall health of an individual. Conclusion: The audiovisual aid is an effective tool in providing anticipatory guidance for convincing patient for dental procedures. Audio and audiovisual distraction techniques provided an effective reduction in dental anxiety.
