Intérêt de la réalité virtuelle au cabinet dentaire pour des patients en situation de stress : présentation d'un cas clinique

Abstract : Introduction: Dental anxiety, particularly related to the specific environment of the practice, is a problem experienced by many patients, and its management remains a major challenge. To reduce the problems of anxiety and pain, common techniques include distraction: using speech, music, or television to distract the patient's attention. Virtual reality combines visual and auditory distraction, using computer simulation to immerse the user in a fictional environment. Objectives : The objective of this clinical case is to use an OculusGo virtual reality headset with the HypnoVR© software for an anxious patient, and to evaluate the effects felt. Materials and method: We present the difficult case of a 15 year old disabled patient (physical and mental retardation) referred by the Limoges University Hospital after numerous failures in treatment. The act is finally carried out thanks to the use of the HypnoVR© device. Pain and anxiety are evaluated. Results : The use of the HypnoVR© software, supplemented by verbal and non-verbal treatment, reduces anxiety during dental care.
