Dental Phobia In Kids: How To Prevent It?

posted on November 27th, 2014

Dental phobias generally develop from childhood, where a traumatic experience may have left us with feelings of anxiety about going to the dentist. According to Ridgetop Dental International’s best dentists in Bangalore, if a child’s first dental visit is a positive experience, the child is less likely to develop dental phobia in future.

If your child’ first dental visit is coming up; here are some easy ways to make it a pleasant one for your little bundle of joy.

Schedule a casual visit

If you have a toddler who has not yet seen a dentist, consider a “get acquainted” visit to introduce your child to the dental office before the first appointment and the office environs, from the dentist’s chair to the lobby, will feel more familiar.

Ask questions

Unanswered questions can lead to needless fear or anxiety. Make a list of your questions about your child’s oral health in advance. This could include such topics as home care, injury prevention, diet and snacking, fluoride and tooth development.

Good pediatric dentists like Ridgetop Dental International’s friendly pediatric dentists in Bangalore will be happy to discuss any worries you may have.

Act brave

Children look to their parents as a pillar of strength and support. If you share your own dental anxieties with your child, your child would never be able to be comfortable with dental visits.

Explain the importance of oral hygiene and regular dental visits

Teach your child that visiting the dentist is a necessity, not a choice, and that the dentist will take care of his teeth so that they are strong enough for him to eat. You might also explain that the dentist helps keep cavities at bay and ensures that his patients will have a beautiful smile for years to come.

The dentists at Ridgetop Dental International Pvt Ltd understand how frightening a trip to the dentist can seem to young children. That’s why their child friendly pediatric dentists in Koramangala have dedicated themselves to creating a relaxing and comforting environment designed to help children feel less anxious when receiving treatment so they can continue enjoying the very best oral health possible.
