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

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).
