Undoubtedly there will be questions from your child about the dental appointment. Be honest with them. For questions you are not clear, it is OK to tell the child that “I do not know” or “We will ask the dentist”. However, do not say anything that will make the process seems scary. Something like “The dentist will give you a shot” will not help.

Dress your child in comfortable clothes. Feel free to bring the child’s favorite blanket or stuffed animal, if he/she would like to.

Sedation is usually performed during the mornings at our Plano pediatric dentistry office. The reason is that the child is required not to eat anything after midnight before the scheduled appointment. This long time without food consumption will be easier during sleeping period.

At the same time, do not start this fasting period too early. If food is cut off too early, a child may become low on blood sugar and not feel well during the dental treatment process during the morning. The cut off time is midnight. Late evening snacks are OK and can be appreciated by the child.
