Dentistry for Kids
When taking care of kids, it’s important to keep them comfortable, pain-free, and get them used to coming to see our dentist. The staff at Thiells Dentist - Michael Bleyzer, DDS works hard to make dentistry for kids a pleasant experience for every child.
The Challenges of Dentistry for Kids
Treating children can be challenging. One of the most challenging things is to keep them still for an extended time so that we can perform dental procedures. Kids don’t like to sit on a chair with dental tools in their mouths and can become afraid of us if they are not used to coming into the office.
To prevent this (and future tooth decay), the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends parents start bringing their children for periodic cleanings beginning when they turn one. Our staff will make the experience as fun as possible and also take the time to teach children about caring for their teeth.
Our dentists and hygienists are trained to treat patients of all ages, including children, and we are happy to get to know our youngest patients and watch them grow.
How to Keep Children Comfortable During a Dental Appointment
One of our top priorities is keeping children comfortable and relaxed during a dental appointment. Even when the child comes in for a cleaning and fluoride treatment, our dentist office can be intimidating. Parents play an essential role in making children comfortable ahead of time.
Your child’s oral health is a partnership. Teaching them how to brush their teeth properly from an early age can help them keep healthy teeth and gums. We will do professional cleanings periodically and explain to them how to care for their teeth.
There are several ways in which you can help us keep your kids comfortable during a dental visit including explaining:
You are more than welcome to accompany your child for as long as he or she needs you. Having mom or dad there with them helps to take away anxiety and fear.
