Preparing your child for their first dental visit in Hawthorne

Hawthorne children's dentist

It's true that the earliest experiences that your child has with healthcare professionals make an indelible impression upon them. If those experiences are negative, painful, and stressful, you could be in for a difficult time whenever he or she needs to visit a doctor. On the other hand, if the experiences are positive and comfortable, visits will be much easier and your child is likely to remember those good experiences into adulthood. At the office of Anna J. Huh, D.M.D., all it takes is just a little bit of preparation on your part to make sessions with our Hawthorne children's dentist a breeze.

Before your first trip with your child to our office, you should explain to her or him what is going to happen. Assuming that your child is coming in for a routine dental exam and cleaning, there should be no pain at all as part of it. Make sure that they understand that. Our Hawthorne children's dentist and our entire staff take great care to ensure that he or she is fully aware of what all the various tools and equipment are for. The examination is thorough, including a visual inspection and physical checkup of your kid's teeth, jaws, and gums. And a teeth cleaning is essential for the removal of hardened tartar, along with any residual plaque. It is those two bacterial substances that are at the center of causing tooth decay, the resulting cavities, and eventuality toothaches. The most alarming part of a cleaning from your child's perspective is often the sound of the ultrasonic tools. Our Hawthorne children's dentist will make certain that she or he knows what to expect, but your assurance ahead of time can make a big difference in ensuring that your child remains calm and at ease.
