Dentists appointments shouldn’t only be scheduled when children have pain or holes can be seen. It’s best to pop in when there are no acute problems. Because then going to the dentist becomes really exciting for the little ones: we brush the cuddly toy’s teeth, the dentist’s chair goes up and down and the many devices hum cheerfully. Only when the child has gained confidence do we look in the mouth and check the condition of the teeth. Before starting the treatment, we explain and show the child what will happen. Our trained personnel also have a few tricks up their sleeves to distract younger patients. The first early detection examination is to be done when the first milk tooth has come through. This way, your child slowly gets to know the unfamiliar environment of the dental practice and has plenty of time to get used to it.
GOING TO THE DENTIST –
GAINING CHILDREN’S TRUST THROUGH PLAY
DO YOU ENJOY GOING TO THE DENTIST?
It’s important that parents are good role models when going to the dentist. When you come to the dental practice relaxed and free from anxiety, this will often be passed on to your child. And your child can also learn the routine of brushing their teeth twice a day from you. You should brush them again afterwards until the child is at least six years old, or sometimes older, to make sure the teeth are thoroughly clean. We’ll be glad to give you tips on this as well as on tooth-friendly nutrition when you visit us.
