PARENTS- ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE FIRST DENTAL VISIT OF YOUR CHILD?
Is your child exposed to the dental office yet? If not, it is never too late to foster a healthy relationship with the dentist and make oral scans an important part of his/her growing up.
The specialists of Child Dentistry in Dental Panache, the Best Dental Clinic in Gurgaon, follow child-friendly protocols to ensure a pleasant trip to the dental office.
INSTRUCTION FOR PARENTS PRIOR TO FIRST DENTAL VISIT
LEAD BY EXAMPLE: Always brush with your child twice daily to inculcate the right habits from early years. Supervise their brushing till they develop manual dexterity and the importance of oral hygiene.
ICEBREAKER: Bring your child to your own dental appointments to make him/her accustomed to the environment, sights, and sounds of a dental office. Your positive experience will encourage the child for a non-threatening dental experience. Older siblings can also be good role models.
DENTAL SAGAS: If you have dental anxiety, ask your spouse to explain to the child about the dental office and accompany them. Children are very sensitive and can sense your inherent discomfort. Please don’t intimidate the child due to your own painful experience and try your level best to shield the anxiety.
FEARLESS DENTISTRY: Alarming words like “NEEDLE” or “DRILL” should never be used to describe any dental procedure to your child. We use fun and helpful kid-friendly words like “SLEEPY JUICE” or “SUPERFAST TOOTHBRUSH” to explain them.
TOOTH TALK: Introduce your child to educational tools like cartoons, books, activities, poems, games, and apps to make them familiar with their teeth, the importance of toothbrushing, dental visit, and healthy smiles. Prior information will allay their anxiety about the new environment. A fun way to get kids comfortable is to play “dentist-dentist,” using props like toothbrushes, flashlights, paper cups for rinsing and inviting all their stuffed toys for a dental checkup.
PRIOR INFORMATION: Prepare the child well before bringing him/her to a dental office by explaining that a dentist will be looking into their mouth for cavities or other problems without causing any pain.
