Making Kids Comfortable During Dental Visits

Everyone who receives dental care should feel comfortable with their treatment experiences. With that said, the way a young patient feels about their care can shape their comfort with future visits, which is why it is so important to provide positive early experiences. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we are proud to provide dependable care in an environment that is welcoming and supportive. During pediatric dental visits, we can rely on traditional preventive care as well as guidance on matters of oral hygiene to familiarize kids with both professional oral health care and daily care. Because we support patients of all ages, we can be here to support adults as well as children, making us a convenient location for everyone in your family!

The Right Early Experiences Can Help Kids Feel Comfortable With Smile Care

The right introduction to both the dental office and dental care can make it easier to help children feel at ease during future oral health services. Our practice understands this, and Dr. Foust and our team can make sure that the youngest members of your family are warmly received when they arrive, and we can also see to it that they feel safe and supported throughout their appointments. From the time when their first teeth begin to arrive through their development into adulthood, kids’ oral structures go through considerable changes. We can support their smile health throughout this process, and we can also provide gentle encouragement and guidance to help them feel at ease with smile care once they are ready to maintain their teeth on their own.

Remember That Your Oral Health Is Important, Too!

During pediatric dental visits, we can make the transition from gentle visual exams to cleanings and reviews that more closely resemble the kind of dental exams and cleanings that adults receive. That kind of preventive support will benefit adults over time, as it lowers risks for dental decay and gum disease, removes harmful tartar buildup, and generally keeps people informed about the state of their smile. We are here to help patients of all ages, so you can make appointments for your own smile when you schedule care for your kids, making services easier to arrange and attend!
