4 Tips to Help Your Child at the Dentist

Posted on April 7, 2017 at 12:40 AM

The best time for your child's first visit is 2 1/2 to 3 years old.  Of course if you have a concern, at any age, don't hesitate to come to our office.  But we find the most success and cooperation occurs around the age of 3.  Here are our best tips for parents to try to ensure a successful 1st visit.

1. Lead By Example

Parents that brush and floss, have children that brush and floss.  Parents that talk positivly about their dental visits have children that have postive dental expirences.

2.  Don't Say The Word "Hurt"

Your child has no idea what to expect at his dental visit.  Please do not but the possiblity of pain into his mind.  Our team has ways of explaining a dental cleaning, a filling or an extraction to you child in a kind, pleasant, age appropriate way.  Your child may surprise you!  In fact we have had children fall asleep during fillings and children that need giggle breaks during a cleaning.

3.  Read All About It.

Check out books at the library that explain what happens at the dentist.

4.  Bring Your Child In To "Help"

We love it when parents bring their child in to their dental checkups.  We often have them sit right next to Mom and help find sugar bugs.  If they can see Mom is having fun, their visit will be more successful.

Useful post, taking children to the dentist can be stressful. But these ways can help to make dental appointments less scary. If your child is five or six and, suddenly, you introduce this strange new world of white rooms, funny smells, and probing hands, it is bound to be scary. But, if your little one grows up with memories of visiting for routine appointments, it is just going to feel like a normal part of life.

I like that you mentioned the best time to take your child to the dentist is when they are 2-3 years old. My little girl's first teeth are growing and I think she needs to have her first appointment. Thank you for the tips on making the first visit less stressful for my daughter, I'll have them in mind on her first appointment.

My children are nervous about having their first visit to the dentist. I like that you mention that parents can motivate their children by telling them about their first dental visit. Thank you for the advice on not putting into their mind that they will experience pain at any moment.

Taking your child to the dentist is so essential. As you talk about going for the first time, make sure you do not give your child any reason to think it will be scary. Sometimes kids would never be frightened if adults did not put it in their head to be so. Do not let your fear rub off on them either. Maybe you hate going yourself and cannot imagine that your child will be okay. It is best to wait and see, and try to stay as calm as possible.

Children must take care in a well way and parent must follow their body health. Lots of children are not able to manage their body health due to some bad situation and environmental issues. Many parents nowadays aware about health and keep their children body health in the best way.

Great points there - loved the simplicity of writing you've used here. My child's dentist at Dr. Teeth Dental Care in Katy, TX always tells me to make sure I inform them before I come with my child so that they ensure they bring some fun toys or something to make him feel happy and relaxed all the time.

Nice article which you have shared here about child dentistry. Milk teeth are different from adult teeth. So their problems are different and they need the best dental treatment.
