Taking Your Child To The Dentist
When babies are little there is so much focus and speculation when it comes to teething, not to mention excitement when the teeth start to appear. But what should you do once they come through? Here are some guidelines on caring for your children's first teeth
When to start
The Australian Dental Association recommends that you take your child for their first dental visit just after their first baby teeth come through. There are several reasons why an early start is a good idea:
- Your child will become familiar with going to the dentist.
- Care of baby teeth is highly important. If any baby teeth fall out too soon, permanent teeth can come in crooked or crowded. A dentist can intervene by using a "space maintainer", which is a shallow substitute for a real tooth.
What will happen at your child's first visit?
Your child's first visit to the dentist should be as comfortable as possible. During the visit, your dentist will:
- Check your child's face and jaws to make sure everything is in alignment.
- Check both teeth and gums to make sure they're healthy, and look for signs of "baby bottle" tooth decay, a common problem in infants and toddlers.
- Instruct you in how best to care for your child's teeth and gums, including advice on their diet, brushing their teeth, and whether they need a fluoride supplement.
- Suggest a schedule for future visits.
How to prepare your child
Even if you have started taking your child to the dentist as early as possible, they may feel anxious about dental visits once they become toddlers. Here are some suggestions for making dentist trips as easy as possible:
- Take time to "play dentist" with your child at home. Take turns at being the dentist, and make it fun.
- Read your child a story about going to the dentist.
- Make the dental appointment for a time when your child is well-rested.
- Talk to your dentist before the visit about any medical or psychological problems your child may have.
- Openly discuss any concerns your child may have.
Sometimes the normal anxiety a child might feel about going to the dentist becomes a strong fear. Here are some suggestions on how you might help them:
- Perhaps your child hasn't developed a good rapport with your dentist. Pediatric dentists are specially trained to deal with children; look one up or ask your friends.
- Try and find out what your child is afraid of. Older children may have heard scary stories from their school friends, and they often aren't true! Your older child may need to have certain procedures explained to them correctly. If it's just a general fear, something as simple as a reward after visiting the dentist might be enough to get them through the door and in the chair.
- Check how you've been talking about the dentist. If you've been nervous about going to the dentist yourself, you might have passed the fear onto your children. Also be careful which words you use. Words such as "drill", "hurt", "jab" or "needle" cause anxiety.
- Sit close to your child during the visit.
- Don't worry if your toddler has a few tears at first; chances are they will soon calm down if your dentist is friendly and you are close by.
