Dental anxiety refers to a child's fear of going to the dentist. It can range from mild anxiety to severe dental phobia. Dental anxiety can cause your child to avoid going to the dentist, which can result in poor dental habits and tooth decay. You can help your child overcome dental anxiety with these steps.
Starting children early with dental care and oral health care lessons is important for their overall health. Not only does it establish good oral health habits, but it reinforces positive attitudes toward going to the dentist's office. The more comfortable they are with your dentist early on in life, the more receptive they'll be when it comes time for their first checkup and cleaning! Here are some helpful tips for managing your child's dental anxiety.
