FAQs about Children's Dentistry
- How do I prepare my child for the dentist?
To prepare your child for the dentist, make sure you schedule a time when your child is most likely to be well-rested and willing to cooperate.
When explaining the visit to your child, use positive words, and avoid mentioning any negative experiences or associations such as “pain.”
While we’re confident your child will feel comfortable in our care, we know that children are very sensitive to new experiences and can be easily scared.
Last but not least, listen to your child and maintain an open line of communication. Encourage him or her to share any worries with the dentist.
- Why should children visit the dentist?
It’s important to teach children healthy dental habits from a young age that they can use throughout their life to maintain a healthy smile.
Early check-ups prevent more significant problems down the road, such as tooth decay or cavities that can lead to pain and other medical issues.
- Do I need a pediatric dentist?
While pediatric dentists only specialize in dentistry for children, a general dentist like our team in Woburn is experienced with children and can care for your child’s smile for many years to come.
From a young age into adulthood, a general dentist can provide comprehensive dental care. A bonus is that your child will feel less anxiety over the years by working with one trusted and caring team.
