If you have kids, you know that introducing them to new things can be fun, challenging, exciting, frustrating, and so much more all at the same time!
Now days when a child gets a cavity for the first time, it’s like a tornado hits the household! There may be tears and tantrums and then two minutes later they will be on to something new. Most kids grow up learning they don’t want cavities, and get rewarded if they come to the dentist office and leave with an A+ on their dental report card; it definitely was not that way when we were kids.
Back when we were kids, we grew up almost expecting to have cavities when we went to the dentist. Having the doctor pry, poke, and drill for an hour or so was normal.
Today, in our society, there are many benefits our children have, that we didn’t have when we were younger. For example, one of the great benefits is that kids today are growing up with fluoride in the water. People are becoming more aware of the importance of dental hygiene and parents know that they need to bring their children to the dentist.
This simple special report was made to give you a couple quick, helpful tips that you can use to help your child grow up with healthy teeth, and prevent as many dental problems as possible.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD), a child should see a dentist when they get their first tooth or by his/her first birthday. Not only is this important for the child’s dental health and development, but also to educate parents on how to properly care for their child’s teeth.
At our office, we let them sit in mom or dad’s lap, shine the light and play show and tell by showing them the different tools we may be using. Then in six months when it’s time for their recare visit, we do a little bit more. So that way when they leave it’s not a negative thing, but they think, “Hey, this doctor’s pretty cool”
Our philosophy is, teach the children to enjoy being at the dentist, then if they need something done, they won’t be scared to let us help them. But if we look in their mouth and see there’s nothing major, we will give them a toothbrush and a prize and have them come back in six months. That way everything is fun!
Parents seem to like that, because when their children grow up not being afraid of the dentist they will be more likely to enjoy the experience.
