MEMO for parents
Talk to your child about the upcoming visit.
It is better to let a parent who is not afraid of dentists do it.
- A visit to the doctor should be a normal everyday event for you.
- You don’t need the phrases “don’t be afraid” or “it doesn’t hurt.
The child does not yet suspect that it is possible to be afraid of something at the reception.
- Don’t use incomprehensible words like “anesthesia,” “filling,” or the dreaded “shot,” “drill,” or “tear out.”
The doctor knows best how to present information and not scare the child before treatment.
- Don’t be fooled into thinking that “the doctor will just look and won’t touch anything.”
- Better say, “The doctor will check you brush your teeth, tell you what lives in your mouth, and,
- If necessary, he will fix your teeth.
Play hospital games at home (you and your child or dolls).
- Show how they come to the clinic, how they behave in the office, open their mouths and treat.
- Be the doctor: say hello, ask the name, if there are any complaints, look at your teeth (play
- can be the evening before the visit).
In the doctor’s office, do not interfere in their conversation with your child.
- Don’t answer for him, just be there for him.
- The doctor needs to completely shift the child’s attention from you to himself for better psychological contact.
IMPORTANT: develop a trusting relationship with dentists.
- You don’t have to scare us and say, “If you don’t brush, they’ll pull your tooth out,” etc.
- The dentist in the eyes of the child should be a friend and a hero who will save teeth from carious monsters.
- Try to make sure that the first visit to the dentist happens before serious dental problems arise, and before your child even knows about the toothache.
At Mikroravi Hambakliinik we try to choose the best treatment, take a gentle approach to the child and always give time to adapt.
- Is your child afraid to go to the dentist?
- How do you set it up before your visit?
