This is one of the hardest things I have to deal with as a parent. As a new parent, it can be a huge adjustment as you try to figure out what is going on with your child. When a child is in your care, you are forced to deal with other people’s feelings and emotions. That is a lot to deal with, and it is very difficult to manage it all.
The thing is, we all experience this at times, even our own children, and it’s not always easy to put out of your mind. There are many reasons for this. Some children just need time to adjust. Others may have a medical condition that makes it very difficult for them to get to a dentist. Still others may have a learning disability, or perhaps may simply be a bit too fussy. Whatever the reason, the only way to manage it is to be there for them.
There are so many different reasons to be there, and a lot of the time all we can do to manage it is to let them know we’re there, making sure they can at least get their teeth cleaned. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard my own five-year-old say, “I’d like to go to the dentist soon.” I’ve also had a four-year-old say, “I want mommy to take me to the dentist soon.
Another reason I like to go to the dentist is that they give me a complete physical exam so that I can make sure the teeth are healthy and strong. Not only does this make me feel much better about having my teeth cleaned, but the dentist gives me the best possible chance of not having to have all the braces removed, which can be a huge nuisance in some cases.
In other words, if you’re going to the dentist for a checkup, why not take your son? The odds of a child dying from an untimely dental visit are much lower with a dentist, and the cost of having your child checked out more than likely will be covered by your insurance.
But let’s be honest: What is the point of having a dentist if a kid gets a mouthful of braces? The answer is that we, as parents, often give children a false sense of security by not having them get checked out on a regular basis. The fact is that most of them never need it, and if they do, they don’t need to pay for it.
If you’re thinking about getting your kid a check-up, the only real problem is that you need to find a dentist in your area and you may not be able to get a free consultation. In my area, that’s not likely to be an issue because most of us have a dentist in our immediate community. But if you’re thinking about having your kid get a check-up, you may want to consider the fact that insurance is a factor.
Insurance is the reason you have to go to the dentist. Its not really a big deal, but it can be a huge expense. The most affordable, and usually the best option, is dental insurance. Your pediatrician can also help you with your insurance costs, but you can ask.
