Turn That Frown Upside Down—Ways to Get Your Child Excited For Their First Dental Visit
A stranger stalking toward you with sharp metal objects in their hand, ready to stick them into your mouth—that’s what most kids think about their dental visit.
We at Waterfront Family Dentistry are here to dispel that idea for your baby boy or girl!
According to the CDC, 1 out of 5 children between the ages of 5-11 have a minimum of one decayed tooth that’s left untreated. As adults, it is the responsibility of parents to get their child mentally ready to visit the dentist for the first time.
Pediatric dentists are the best way to ensure a fun trip to the dentist’s office for your child. These professionals have around 2 to 3 years of specialty training to become skilled at treating children.
Visiting a dentist before the age of one is recommended for the oral health of a child. This can be hard when the child is terrified. We understand the difference between treating an adult and a child. Our pediatric dentists are friendly empathetic professionals who do their most to make your child feel at ease.
We Fear What We Don’t Understand
Around 30% of Americans admitted to suffering from anxiety because of the state of their teeth. Stress the importance of healthy teeth—after all, we only get 2 sets to last us a lifetime. Children should know that dentists are actually friends of their teeth.
To remove the impression of a dentist’s office being a strange scary place, parents should thoroughly prepare their little one about their first ever dental visit. This includes showing them photos of the dentist, the office and the staff.
It would be even better if there was a preliminary meeting with the dentist—this will make your child familiar with the concerned dentist. If there are toys or fun displays at the dentist’s office, be sure you point them out.
