How to prepare your child for their first dental visit?

Preparation of your child is crucial for ensuring their first trip to the dentist is a positive experience.  

Here are a few of my top tips for parents to make that first (and every) visit is a relaxing one. 

Most importantly, even if you have a great fear of the dentist or you are the typical “I hate the dentist” type of patient , please don’t pass this to your child by using negative words. Don’t talk about your fear in front of your child, use positive words and phrases about visiting the dentist.

Myobrace

The Myobrace® is a relatively new device for helping children improve the alignment of their jaw and tongue.  The idea behind the Myobrace is early intervention (from the age of about 5 or 6) to reduce or eliminate the issues that lead to misalignment of teeth later in life.  The process involves helping the child to develop jaw muscles, correct jaw and tongue position, improve breathing (through the nose and not the mouth) and even how to swallow correctly.
