CAN I ACCOMPANY MY CHILD DURING DENTAL TREATMENT?
You can accompany your child during the oral and dental examination. The child who has provided a sense of trust to the dentist during the treatment; can have dental treatment without a parent.
But if your child does not want to leave you, stay as a silent visitor; so that your doctor has sufficient control over your child.
More than one observer; If more than one person interferes with the child, a complex environment will emerge and the dentist will have difficulty in creating a safe environment. If your child can make you do whatever he/she wants, he/she will use this environment very well.
WHAT SHOULD I SAY TO MY CHILD BEFORE THE FIRST VISIT TO THE DENTIST?
Your child should know when visiting the dentist that this is a safe place. No intervention will be made against him without his consent. ”It will be beneficial for him to do these treatments.” Your child should definitely know this. Children under 5 believe in fairy tales. You can tell them stories about it. You may suggest that the doctor will chase away the germs, your teeth will tickle a little, then give him a magic filling that will make him very strong.
The first visit should be informed as we mentioned earlier. Your doctor should see your child at the specially set time. In the first examination, the examination is performed with the help of a mirror and a probe. You can explain these tools to your child beforehand. With a small mirror, he will also count his teeth. The probe tip is a pointed instrument. Children are afraid the doctor will stick that instrument in their mouth. He tells her that this will never happen, then let your doctor do the examination.
