No Pain and No Fear: What Parents Must Know about Kids Fillings in King of Prussia, PA

As any parent knows, kids have a sweet tooth and as a result they may have to go to a pediatric dentistry practice and get fillings. Yes, pediatric dental fillings are a reality that you must face, because your child needs healthy primary teeth before the second set grows.

Our primary focus is to give your children the best dental care and make sure that the experience is not frightening for them. Thus, we are doing our best to make each visit for child cavity filling as friendly and non-intimidating as possible.

How to Prepare Your Child for a Cavity Filling?

Of course, parents play a huge role in helping children perceive the sweet tooth dentist as a friend. We know it is difficult, especially when we have to perform a toddler cavity filling. Our little patients are too young to understand anything beyond the simplest explanation for any emergency procedure we have to perform.

However, we have a few helpful recommendations to prepare your child for pediatric dental fillings:

  • Be honest with the child and answer any questions they have 
  • Share your own stories about going to the sweet tooth dentist as a child
  • Do not allow anyone to share their negativity and scare stories with your child

 

How Can I Prevent Dental Decay/Cavities in My Child’s Teeth?

Prevention is always better than having to take your child for pediatric dental fillings. With proper dental hygiene and early education oral care, they may avoid seeing the sweet tooth doctor for anything else except regular check-ups.

Here are a few helpful tips:

  • Oral care starts before teething – clean your baby’s gums with a damp cloth
  • Start brushing your children as soon as they start teething
  • As soon as the child has two teeth next to one another, start flossing them
  • Brush and floss your child’s teeth until the age of 5 or 6
  • Once they start brushing on their own, supervise your children as they brush and floss their teeth
  • Meet the Professional and Friendly Sweet Tooth Dentist You Can Trust!
