My child is too nervous to visit the orthodontist in Liverpool

Perhaps the greatest teacher in your child’s life will be you. You teach your child to make their bed, you show them how to feed themselves and you also teach them about dental hygiene and caring for their teeth. Dental hygiene should also extend to regular visits to the dentist or orthodontist in Liverpool.

orthodontist-liverpoolIf your child is nervous or anxious about visits to the dentist, we understand! And we’d like to encourage you as the parent to show your child that coming into our Liverpool Smile Studio is a normal part of life. The following will talk a bit more about when you should bring your child to see us, what we can do to help your children and how you can get in touch with us.

At what age should my child visit the orthodontist in Liverpool?

Around the age of seven years old you should bring your child to our Liverpool Smile Studio for an assessment. We may not need to do anything but check on your child’s developing teeth and his or her gums. After the assessment, we can establish if any further action needs to be taken to rectify things like gaps or teeth growing in incorrect directions.

If you think your child needs to see an orthodontist in Liverpool, come by our studio for a chat. We can organise a consultation.

The earlier you bring your child to us, the better. Not only can we identify problems and work towards fixing them early, but your child will get used to our team and the studio. It will become a familiar place for your child which may help reduce stress and anxiety.

How can I calm my anxious child?

If your child is anxious about her or her visit to us, then we’ll speak to the member of our team who is a dental phobia certified dentist. She is trained to work with people that find going to the dentist daunting. Give us a call ahead of time to organise a meeting between your child and our dentist.

Procedures and treatments offered by our orthodontist

If your child needs them, we have several treatments and procedures available for you. For example, if your child needs braces, we can look into the kind of braces that will work best for them. Fixed braces are a regular option at our studio.

If your child needs a longer term treatment plan, we’ll make sure that you understand the entire procedure and that all of your questions have been answered.

Get in touch with us

Your child may be savvier than you when it comes to social media and the internet, but we’ve made it so simple to contact us. You can call Liverpool Smile Studio or you can pop in for a consultation.

Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are the best ways to check our treatment results, our work ethic, and the number of our satisfied patients. You can also go into our Smile Gallery which highlights a few of our happy patients. This may be good to show your child, so they can see the number of people including children we’ve been able to help over the years.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our Liverpool Smile Studio!
