Tips To Prevent Dental Anxiety For Your Kids

Not Your Kid!

Kids' fear of "going to the dentist"is usually anticipatory & unfounded.  Here are a few tips to help eradicate the potential for life-time dental anxiety by ensuring positive dental experiences throughout childhood.

SHOW NO FEAR: Even if you experience anxiety, do not communicate this to your child.

SET THE BAR HIGH: Demonstrate excellent home care & encourage your child to practice to an age-appropriate level.  Pitch in when necessary.

START EARLY: Call us to discuss the best time to start your child's dental visits, beginning with a get-to-know-us appointment, and if we complete an oral exam,you will be right by your child's side.  Afterwards, make the day even more special by going out to lunch or catching a movie together.

INSTILL PRIDE: Praise your child for taking good care of their smile,not their bravery

PREVENT >>> Diabetes, Stroke & Heart Disease.....

In addition to plaque, there are several factors that can increase your risk of developing periodontal (gum) disease which can be linked to many very dangerous and life threatening systemic diseases, such as Diabetes & Coronary Heart Disease . Other factors include hormonal changes in girls & women ( recent studies show that menopausal women actually need more that two check ups per year to control plaque buildup), smoking, poor nutrition, medications, and sometimes it's just your genetics.

If you've been a little nervous about visiting the dentist or if life has been busy and you haven't kept up your regular appointments, we understand.  But your health is being affected by your oral health. We're here to listen - not -judge - and we are here to help.
