Pediatric dentist: A special focus of Dr. Thomas Pilus is the dental care of children. He uses special methods to respond to the delicate psyche of children in order to take away any fears they may have of visiting the dentist.
© S. Hofschläger/pixelio.de | An experienced children’s dentist puts a smile on children’s lips by making their visit as pleasant and painless as possible.
The first visit of a child to the dentist, which should take place between the ages of 3 and 4, is decisive for his later behaviour at the dentist. This is because children who trust doctors and can also associate positive experiences with a visit to the doctor will also more frequently make use of the prophylactic and therapeutic measures of the doctors in their later lives. And with early habituation to the dentist, only preventive treatments are usually necessary.
With the help of their parents, the children should remember their first visit to the dentist with pleasure. But if parents are reluctant to go to the dentist themselves, they should not take their child with them if they have to go to the dentist themselves so that their fear cannot spread to the child. An informative discussion before the treatment is highly recommended.
Children should actually be treated as sensitively as adults, but when I notice that children are very afraid, I take them by the hand or put them on my lap. In many cases I also take off my white coat, which has a great psychological power on children, Dr. Pilus tells about his daily practice with children. Even examinations without instruments, so-called placebo treatments, often occur in his practice.
In some cases it is better for the children to come to the treatment room alone, because parents are often a disruptive factor during the check-up. The little ones then behave differently, according to children’s dentist Dr. Pilus, who only wants the best for his young patients. Because: 50 percent of the healing success is the trust between doctor and patient.
Dental care from the milk teeth
Children should be made familiar with proper dental care as early as possible – actually from the very first milk tooth. First, polish the first teeth with a cotton swab and without toothpaste. That’s enough. It serves more for getting used to brushing than for cleaning. From the 1st year clean with small amounts of infant toothpaste. From the age of 3, children should be educated for independent dental care.

I will soon go to the dentist with my son for the first time. I think it is very important that this first experience goes well. Especially because you say that this is important later in life. I am not afraid of the dentist myself, so I am good at showing that everything is not too bad.
