How can I help my child feel comfortable at the dentist?
As a parent, the idea of your child feeling afraid can fill you with a sense of dread. Your attitude plays a significant role in your child feeling comfortable at the dentist. Even if you have a fear of the dentist, it is always a good idea to maintain a positive and even celebratory attitude about your child’s first visit. For a children's dentist in Decatur, IL, who will make dental visits easy and engaging for your little one, we invite you to contact Jerger Pediatric Dentistry to book an appointment.
For children who have anxiety or difficulty sitting still, nitrous oxide is often a safe and reliable way to induce a sense of calm in your little one. Most kids respond well to nitrous oxide, and since it has no long-lasting effects, you can count on your child being back to their regular antics in no time.
We Treat All Children!
For children with disabilities or behavioral challenges, we do work with a local hospital for sedation options. This is especially convenient for children facing extensive treatment such as many fillings or extractions.
We want your child to feel safe and cared for while they are with us. Let's talk about your child’s unique needs when you give us a call.
