Do your kids fear the dentist? Do they scream, moan, or complain when you tell them it’s time for a visit? Taking kids to visit the dentist can be difficult when they behave this way, and while you know that seeing a professional is for the best, they don’t see things the same way. So if you’re children fear the dentist, it’s time for a change. Take them to visit a compassionate and fun dentist. Dr. Vimal Patel, your Prosper children’s dentist, is an experienced and friendly family dentist with a fun personality that will have your kids loving their dental visits.
Why Children Fear the Dentist
Most of what makes children afraid of the dentist stems from two sources. First, if they do not develop a relationship with their dentist, or if the dentist is not welcoming, patient, and friendly, they may react in fear. Without the comfort level that develops between the child and the dentist, the child may not understand the necessity behind each of the procedures. Thus, an experienced children’s dentist like Dr. Patel takes the time to develop a relationship with each child and explain each procedure to ease any discomfort. The second possible source of your child’s aversion to dental visits could stem for your own feelings toward the dentist. If you have a dental phobia, or if the dentist makes you uncomfortable, your children may learn from your behavior. Recent research has opened a debate about whether phobias are learned or innate behaviors. Traditional science say phobias evolved out of instincts for survival, while a newer outlook says that phobias develop through observation of another person’s behavior. Whatever the source of your child’s discomfort with the dentist, choosing an experienced and caring dentist can ease those fears. Make an appointment for your child to visit Dr. Patel. He will make dental visits fun, putting your child on the path to a lifetime of good oral health habits.
