Abstract: Background: Odontectomy is a minor surgical procedure that mostly leads to dental anxiety. Dental anxiety can interfere odontectomy procedure. Music has been used for various settings of dental anxiety in many research. One of the most effective type of music is relaxation music. This music can also be added with binaural beat effect of alpha brainwave. This combination can effectively induce relaxation responses that can reduce the levels of dental anxiety on patients. Objective: To analyze the influence of music relaxation with binaural beat effect on the level of salivary alpha amylase enzyme as a biomarker of dental anxiety. Method: This study was conducted on 48 participants aged 18-40 years old who came to minor surgery clinic of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department at Dental Hospital of Universitas Padjadjaran who will undergo surgical odontectomy of third molar lower jaw, having no systemic disease or other dental diseases. and voluntarily accepted as research subjects. The subjects was divided into 2 groups, control group and intervention group. The patient was measured their salivary alpha amylase enzyme level the first time before intervention, and then the patient was intervened using relaxation music with binaural beat effect for 20 minutes. The control group was simply doing nothing and sitting on dental unit for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, the patients were measured again for their salivary alpha amylase enzyme level. Results: The research results showed that there was significant decrease (p
