Getting Ready For Treatment
How To Prepare For A Root Canal
Depending on the type of sedation your child is receiving, they may be required to fast (avoid eating and drinking) before their appointment. Your dentist at Sea of Smiles Pediatric Dentistry will give you complete instructions on how to prepare for sedation before their appointment, so make sure to follow their directions.
Before your child’s appointment, make sure they’re well-rested, and that they dress comfortably. Do your best to maintain a positive attitude, stay calm, and avoid looking worried. If you’re feeling anxious, your child will know, and they may be more likely to be anxious about the procedure, too.
Beyond this, there isn’t much that you have to do. If your child feels nervous, reassure them that everything is going to be okay, and that the dentist is going to take great care of them. And don’t worry about explaining what will happen during their root canal procedure. Your child’s dentist at Sea of Smiles Pediatric Dentistry can explain the process in a child-friendly way.
