Baby teeth aid the health and alignment of children’s adult teeth as they come through. Children should start seeing a dentist as their first tooth develops, and preparing them for their appointment makes for a smoother visit.
- Talk your child through the basics of what they can expect from a dental visit, emphasising the importance of dental care.
- Play can be a good learning tool and pretending at being a dentist while taking them through an appointment can help prepare children.
- Listening to any questions your child has about the dentist and talking them over can help make children feel more at ease and secure about their visit.
“Telling your child what to expect gives them a chance to ask questions and for you to generate some excitement around the appointment. It also allows you to communicate to your child the importance of professional oral care in addition to brushing and flossing at home.”
