  • Abstract

    The aim of the study was to evaluate the different types of audio-visual aids available and their effects on convincing patients for dental treatment. There are various factors that may influence the behavior of a reluctant patient toward 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, audio-visual aids provide a comprehensive, self-directed, and evidence-based approach to the promotion of oral health. This study provides information on the various form of audio-visual 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 dental treatment and its importance on the overall health of an individual. The audio-visual aid is an effective tool in providing anticipatory guidance for the convincing patient for dental procedures. Audio and audio-visual distraction techniques provided an effective reduction in dental anxiety.
