We thought we’d share this story with you which we saw recently on the BBC website:
An invention which cancels out the noise of a dentist’s drill could help people overcome their fear of a check-up, researchers say.
This new device allows patients to listen to music on an MP3 player, while the sound of the drill is blanked out.
“Many people are put off going to the dentist because of anxiety associated with the noise of the dentist’s drill, but this device has the potential to make fear of the drill a thing of the past.
“The beauty of this gadget is that it would be fairly cost-effective for dentists to buy, and any patient with an MP3 player would be able to benefit from it, at no extra cost.”
