Maintaining healthy teeth and gums should begin at a very early age. However, children need to feel comfortable with their dentist in order to develop the proper habits in the future. What actions can parents take to make this a rewarding and stress-free transition?
– Practice brushing and flossing with your child on a daily basis.
– Remain calm and relaxed during the child’s dental appointment.
– Play “dentist” games to increase a sense of familiarity.
“When you go to visit your dentist, let your child know or take him or her with you if you can.”
