Help your family make the most of visits to their family dentists in Rose Hill, KS
When we are in the presence of an upbeat, happy person, we tend to feel a little lighter ourselves. Conversely, agitated, nervous energy can be contagious. This is especially true when it comes to parents and children. Children are especially in sync with their parents’ energy, and are prone to take on certain feelings. This fact is relevant to dental care, especially, because many children today harbor some fear of the dentist, even if they have not had a bad experience.
Preventing dental fear
The family dentists in our Rose Hill, KS dental practice want our youngest and oldest patients to feel comfortable receiving care that will keep their smiles healthy and pain-free. We encourage parents to bring their children in for dental care before they reach three years of age. With this early exposure, children tend to remain more comfortable in the office environment.
Because children will take on the feelings of their parents, it is important to feel confident in the team you have chosen to care for your family’s oral health. When parents discuss dental visits as being exciting or adventurous, children will feel more positive about their impending experiences. Positive conversations about dental care, in general, invoke the same feelings in children, and should occur often as children are developing their own oral care habits.
Whom you choose to care for your child’s teeth is important. The early dental experiences of a child will impact how he or she views dentistry in the future. Many adults who harbor dental anxiety do so as a result of early dental care, whether this care was inadequate or not. Dr. Troilo is a family dentist with over three decades of experience right here in Wichita. In our practice, we have cared for the teeth of children into their adult years and then their children after them. We pride ourselves on detecting the unique needs of each of our patients, and earning their trust.
At Rose Hill Dental, you and your family’s dental needs will be attended to with gentleness and understanding. We offer services to prevent and repair dental conditions, and can enhance your smile with routine cleanings and cosmetic dental treatments.
