Dental Anxiety

Our VRET application is for dental clinics dealing with clients who are anxious or experiencing tension during a dental visit. The application consists of 2 components: exposure and distraction.

Dental anxiety – also known as odontophobia – is a severe fear of visiting the dentist or having a dental procedure performed. Many people experience some form of negative emotion when visiting the dentist, but people with odontophobia often avoid a dental examination unless there is a serious problem. The VRET application reduces fear of the dentist, so treatments are easier and clients experience more well-being. In addition, people with bad teeth have an increased risk of heart problems and rheumatoid arthritis. And there is a link between dental disease and serious illnesses such as dementia and diabetes. So the successful treatment of odontophobia with VRET also have a positive impact on indirect social costs.
