How can you help children to overcome their fear of the dentist?
Regular visits to the dentist are recommended (twice a year), at least from the age of three, when all of the milk teeth have come through.
The first appointments are important, as they allow the child to become accustomed to the dentist without needing to undergo any treatment. Stay with your child throughout the consultation to reassure them, and ask the dentist to explain what they are doing.
When you get home afterwards, ask them to draw a picture of their visit to the dentist.
From the age of 12 and up, you may be able to leave them alone with the dentist during treatment.
