When your child is young, it’s crucial to teach them proper oral hygiene and to get them used to seeing their dentist, as this will help ensure they enjoy good oral health into their adult years. If your child is ready to see the dentist, then you should consider children’s dentistry services at the Sharon dental office of Dr. Alla Agamov, DMD.
What Is Children’s Dentistry?
Children’s dentistry, also known as pediatric dentistry, refers to methods dentists like Dr. Agamov use to care for the oral health of their youngest patients. Children require special care and attention when they first start developing teeth. Visiting a dentist who will compassionately treat any of their issues and effectively teach them how to care for their smile as they get older is vital to their health and wellbeing. Dr. Agamov and the rest of our dental team are trained in treating dental issues common to children.
Our Children’s Dentistry Services
When children feel at ease at a dental office, treatment is easier and they’re more likely to feel comfortable visiting their dentist in the future. By getting to know your child, pediatric dentist Dr. Agamov and our staff will be able to help your child relax and take away some of the fear of the unknown that children are more prone to. During your child’s first visit, we’ll take the time to introduce ourselves instead of beginning cleanings or exams. When your child returns for their first real visit, we’ll explain every step to help them feel calm.
Preparing Your Child For Their First Visit
As a parent or guardian of a young child, you may be wondering how to prepare your child for their first visit. To keep your child calm and relaxed Dr. Agamov offers this advice:
- Let your child get familiar with our Sharon dental office. Bring them to visit or just to see the office a few times before their actual first appointment. This will work wonders in helping to eliminate dental anxiety brought on by fear of the unknown.
- Explain to your child in simple terms using calm language what will happen during a routine dental exam. While we’ll be sure to explain the steps of their first exam to your child, they’ll likely be much more at ease hearing about what to expect from you. Emphasize how the dentist is there to help them stay healthy and smile their best.
- Watch a few kid-friendly educational videos about the dentist with your child. Make sure they’re fun and engaging for your child, so they’ll pay attention and come away feeling excited to visit our Sharon, MA dental office.
