Text message can ease orthodontic patients' pain

    According to Angle orthodontist (July 2013), a text message sent from an orthodontic office following initial appliance placement can reduce the severity of the patient's pain and anxiety.
   Seton Hill University Center researchers randomly assigned orthodontic patients to two groups. One group received text messages showing concern and reassurance from the dental office, while the other didn't receive any postprocedure communication.
   The researchers found that mean pain increased and longer in the control group than the text message group.
