Preparing for a Filling
Making a positive visit to the dentist
If this will be your child’s first visit to their local pediatric dentist or their first filling, it’s normal to be anxious. Ahead of the appointment, we recommend that you frame the visit in positive terms and provide only basic information. For example, let your child know that the pediatric dentist will clean their teeth. Don’t use frightening words like “drill” or “pain” or tell them the visit is a punishment for not brushing their teeth. Allow your Culver City pediatric dentist to explain the procedure in terms that won’t be frightening for your child.
Our affordable childrens dentist in Los Angeles specializes in easing childrens’ fears of the dentist. Your child’s appointment for fillings will be as anxiety-free and enjoyable as possible with sedation dentistry options. To help your child stay relaxed during their appointment, we also have kids movies playing on flat screen TVs over our dental chairs.
