The lenses, which projected images and sound output, see preclude their instruments and utensils that are in the dental office. Thus, amending the focus of attention and the dentist can perform their work without problems.

Glasses are a tool that contributes to the comfort of the person and, in turn, calm the fear of the dentist and the perception of pain, as the patient has the sensation of being in a relaxed setting.

Most studies confirm the link between dental fear and pain sensitivity. Thus, the journal Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology public that fear is a major cause of suffering and distress during the intervention odontophobia that is what determines the quality of dental patient's life.

All patients incorporating the Sedentist in your visit, will be able to have virtual glasses, in order to soften their fear of the dentist.
