Getting your little ones to the dentist can be easier said than done. The drive to the dentist’s office may be accompanied by crying and even tantrums. Most of the time, this is caused by dental phobia. At Pediatrics on Park, we accommodate your little ones who may deal with severe dental anxiety or phobia. We are committed to serving families in Plainfield, Dunellen, Middlesex, Garwood, Rahway, Scotch Plains, and the surrounding communities.
In many cases, dental phobia is a result of a negative dental experience. If your child has seen other dental providers, there may be a chance that their experience was not ideal. This could have triggered their fear. We’ve also seen children unfamiliar with a dental practice experience, and naturally, they fear the unknown.
Regardless of the reason for your son’s or daughter’s dental phobia, the team at Pediatrics on Park is committed to providing a positive dental experience. We will not only carefully provide treatment, but our trained staff will also look to educate your child on dental care and its importance. We’ll show them that the dentist isn’t a scary place. Our gentle care will go a long way with this.
Sedation For Dental Phobia
There are some severe dental phobia cases where the support of sedation dentistry could be beneficial. Our in-office sedation options allow your child to enter a state of relaxation and alleviate their fear. Combined with our team’s empathetic approach, your child will be in good hands.
Consistent and quality dental care should be prioritized at an early age. This can be tough if your loved one encounters dental anxiety or phobia when it comes time for their dental visits. The Pediatrics on Park team is well equipped to provide stellar care and alleviate fear. Contact our South Plainfield pediatric dental office.
