Exploring Methods Parents Are Utilizing to Prepare Children for White Fillings in Greensboro, NC

As a parent, when you hear that your child has cavities, you may feel a sense of failure. You may wonder if there is something more you could have done to prevent the cavities. Your child brushes and flosses regularly; you make sure of that. So, what has happened, and how do you get your child prepared for this? Being told that a filling is needed can lead to fear and anxiety in many children. Dr. Sona Isharani and her team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry offer white tooth fillings for kids in the Greensboro, NC area. Dr. Isharani offers gentle and compassionate care to every patient and is there for parents, too, when they need advice on how to best prepare their children for the work that needs to be done.

Exploring Methods Parents Are Utilizing to Prepare Children for White Fillings in Greensboro, NC Area

There are several ways you can help prepare your child for their upcoming dental visit, where they will be receiving a filling.

Cool and Calm

If you remain cool and calm, the chances are that your child will do so as well. Be confident and positive when talking to your child about getting a filling. Do not frame the situation in terms of pain or discomfort. Most importantly, do not shame your child for needing a filling. Keep it basic. If your child is particularly young, see if you can find a children’s book or a cartoon that talks about fillings at a level meant to educate yet keep them calm.

Handling Anxiety

If your child does experience some anxiety about getting a filling, speak to their dentist about options. Dr. Isharani and the team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry provide sedation options meant to keep children calm and free of anxiety during a procedure when needed. Also, remember that every kid is different. Some children are good with getting multiple cavities filled in a single visit, while others may not do so well. It is important that your child know they can be honest with both you and the dentist about their comfort level.

Every child is different. What they need to be prepared to receive a white dental filling could be completely different from another child’s needs. That makes having honest and open conversations about upcoming visits essential. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Isharani at Triad Pediatric Dentistry, please call (336) 804-8668 today.
