At Kissimmee Family Dentistry, we’re proud to treat patients of all ages. We understand that providing dental care to kids isn’t just a matter of making sure their mouth is healthy: it also requires making them comfortable and ensuring they’re prepared for a lifetime of good oral health.
Child Dentistry Services
In some ways, we offer similar services to children that we do to adults. We inspect their mouth, talk to them, provide cleanings, and give any other forms of treatment as needed. However, we also know it can be difficult to get children to sit still. Dental anxiety can also be a major concern.
We endeavor to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere for children. We’ll also explain how they can properly take care of their teeth, so they’re prepared.
Sealants are also especially important because they help kids prevent cavities while they’re still learning to brush and floss properly.
How Do You Prepare Your Child for Their Appointment?
We know the first visit to the dentist can be nerve-racking, for both children and their parents. It’s a good idea to prepare for the first appointment far in advance. Here are some tips for helping you do that:
Tell your child about any positive experiences you’ve had at the dentist.
Have them watch movies or read books about going to the dentist.
Bring them into the office to see it before the appointment.
You can also bring toys, a blanket, or other objects they find comforting. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
