Children's Dentistry Del City OK
Children and the Dentist
Often, parents are concerned when it comes to bringing their children to the dentist. At Full Circle Dental Care, we pride ourselves on making trips to the dentist fun for kids!
We encourage parents to bring their children in at a very young age to get them accustomed to a positive, lifelong relationship with the dentist. We love treating kids—and as your “full circle” dentist, we have treated many of our patients when they children and are thrilled to now be treating their children. Because we offer dentistry for all ages, you can enjoy the convenience of a full-service dentist for all of your family members, young and old.
Good Oral Health Habits—at Any Age
Teaching children how to keep their teeth clean and healthy is an essential life lesson that will serve them for decades to come. Let your kids watch as you brush and floss your teeth and help them learn how to take care of their own teeth. Talk with them about visiting the dentist and explain to them how important it is. Bring your kids along with you on your own dentist appointments to get them familiar with and comfortable in our office.
If you have your own anxiety about visiting the dentist, try not to let that influence your children. It is crucial that kids are calm and happy when it’s their turn to visit the dentist.
What You and Your Child Can Expect During a Pediatric Dental Care Appointment
From the very first time your child comes into our office, we will do what we can to ensure the experience is as pleasant as possible. We offer plenty of diversions kids love: stuffed animals, a treasure chest of toys and prizes, and an iPad loaded with fun games. We also have a no-cavity club board, which provides your kids with a visual reminder of what it means to take good care of their teeth!
We will also spend some time talking with both you and your child to make sure you understand the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene between regular checkups. We will make sure your child understands the proper way to brush and floss. We also offer dental sealants for your child, which offer protection for both the primary molars and premolars.
If your child has any kind of apprehension about his or her trip to the dentist, let us know. We will go out of our way to ensure the visit is designed to help calm any fears he or she is having. By the time your child has first x-rays at the age of six or seven, he or she should feel quite at ease in the dental chair.
