Written by By Vickie J. Scanlon

When is a good time to introduce your child to a dentist? I would strongly suggest that you introduce your children to a dentist before they had any problems with their teeth. You want them to start out with a positive experience – thus, lesseningrepparttar possibility of any dentist phobias. Go ahead and laugh – I’m one of those people who developed an early fear of dentists.

My First Experience

I was very young, and one of my baby teeth became abscessed – not a pleasant feeling. Anyway, it was my father’s duty to take me torepparttar 150947 dentist. Inrepparttar 150948 dentist office, I was told to swish some strong, green liquid in my mouth and spit it out. I was to do that until allrepparttar 150949 liquid inrepparttar 150950 glass was gone – then go back torepparttar 150951 dentist chair and sit down.

I, beingrepparttar 150952 obedient child, did as I was told. I swished and spit, and once done, climbed intorepparttar 150953 dentist chair. I did not have a clue of what was going to happen next, until of course,repparttar 150954 dentist told me to open my mouth and began to pull my tooth out. Low and behold,repparttar 150955 green liquid I had swished in my mouth wasrepparttar 150956 antiseptic! Well, surprise, surprise – it didn’t work!

With my father holding me down inrepparttar 150957 chair, I felt every pain, heard every grinding sound – andrepparttar 150958 experience remained alive and strong in my memory—a memory that followed me throughout my childhood and into adulthood.

After that experience, my love forrepparttar 150959 dentist andrepparttar 150960 very sound of a drill would put me into a panic. No matter how I rationalized it, no matter how much I told myself how stupid I was for feelingrepparttar 150961 fear – it would not go away.
