Study Description

Brief summary:

The main purpose of MUSANX study is to highlight analgesic effectiveness of musicotherapy in post-surgical periodontal and implant; and to measure its per-operative anxiolytic effectiveness

  • Condition or Disease:Dental Pain and Sensation Disorders
  • Intervention/Treatment: Other: musicotherapy
  • Phase: N/A
Detailed Description

This study will be on music use as musicotherapy "receptive " or " passive ", using hearing aid for listening in order to relax and reduce the anxiety and pain state of the patient. This care will be focused on the acute stress and pain during the dental care. Another major secondary purpose will consist to explore the anxiolytic effect of the musicotherapy on diverse stress markers such as heart rate, respiratory rate, salivary cortisol ratio and electro-dermal intensity (RED).

Study Design
  • Study Type: Interventional
  • Estimated Enrollment: 68 participants
  • Allocation: Randomized
  • Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
  • Masking: None (Open Label) ()
  • Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
  • Official Title: Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Musicotherapy in Reducing Peroperative Anxiety and Post-surgical Pain in Dental Care
  • Actual Study Start Date: May 2019
  • Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2021
  • Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2021
Arms and interventions
Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: music-listening group
patient will listen to music during the dental surgery (1 to 1h30 hours).
Other: musicotherapy
If the patient is randomized in the experimental group, he listens the Music-care® playlists and chose two closed to his musical tastes. The playlists are unique compositions create by Music-care® (french company), not known from the general public, categorized by theme (jazz, rock, world music…).
Outcome Measures
  • Primary Outcome Measures: 1. Pain intensity [ Time Frame: 24 hours after the dental surgery ]
    the pain intensity will be measured with the Visual analogue scale (VAS).
  • Secondary Outcome Measures: 1. Efficacy of musicotherapy [ Time Frame: 24, 48 and 72 hours ]
    Evaluate the anxiolytic effectiveness of " passive " musicotherapy on the reduction of peroperative anxiety during the dental surgery by STAY questionnaire
