In our previous blog post, we touched base upon certain things that you can do to help ease your child’s fear of visiting a kids pediatric dentist, such as going through the process of the visit with a pretend visit at home. Some of the other elements that we touched upon included:
- Visiting the dentist early on
- Keeping the details simple
- Avoiding candy as incentives
Many parents make the mistake of over complicating the details of the visit to their child thinking that the extra information will help them understand. It is, however, important to remember that by not keeping it simple you are giving your child more to think about and raising questions that may trigger anxiety. Having your child visit the dentist from an early age will help them be more comfortable throughout their lives. You take your child to visit a kids pediatric dentist as early as the age of 1 or as soon as their first tooth has become visible. This will help lay the groundwork for future visits.
There’s a variety of experts that recommend against offering or promising your child candy or the classic lollipop for staying calm during their visit to the dentist. Not only does offering a sugary treat go against the good oral health habits that you are trying to instill, but it can actually cause more apprehension than it relieves. Telling your child they will get a treat if they don’t cry or fuss will just make them wonder why they would be crying or fussing if the situation isn’t bad. It is much better to compliment your child on what a good job they did after their visit is over.
