Eliminating Dental Fears in Kids

dca-blog_dental-fears-girl-teeth

No child is born with a pre-existing fear of the dentist. Unfortunately, though, many children do begin developing dental fears that make routine visits to the family dentistry office miserable for them and their parents. Since professional dental care and cleanings are non-negotiable necessities for healthy teeth and gums, it pays for parents everywhere to review some simple ideas intended to make the entire process of going to the dentist easier for everyone.

One of the best ways to instill confidence in children when going to the dentist is to start them young—as early as one year old. If they become familiar with going to the dentist while very young, subsequent visits will be far less scary. This is also an opportunity for parents to learn about the proper dental care of their baby’s teeth.

Reading and role-playing can also help to ensure stress-free family dentistry visits for kids. There are children’s books that feature popular characters going to the dentist, which can get kids excited about having their own teeth cleaned just like them. Role-playing where children and their parents take turns being the patient and then the dentist can create familiarity, which will help them stay calm during the actual visit to the dentist.

Taking young children along to their parents’ dental check-ups shows them what they can expect at their own appointment and demonstrates that there really is nothing to fear about going to the dentist. Parents who suffer from dental fears should not share that fact with their children, and should never make negative comments about a visit to the dentist. It’s important that kids don’t associate the dentist with fear.

To help ensure that small children have a positive dental care experience, it may be a good idea to visit a pediatric dentist. These family dentistry experts create office environments designed to provide a comfortable, fun experience for children who are shy, nervous, or have dental fears.
