How To Keep Your Children From Being Intimidated By The Dentist

Has your child ever expressed a feeling of fear when it comes to the dentist? If so, this is the blog for you! Our dentists in Richland, MO are here to give you a few tips for keeping your children from being intimidated by the dentist in this week's blog. If you are looking for a dentist you can depend on for your children, consider Central Ozarks Medical Center. You can call 573.765.2510 to make an appointment.



How To Keep Your Children From Being Intimidated By The Dentist


GET YOUR CHILDREN USED TO THE DENTIST BY TAKING THEM AT A YOUNG AGE.

The earlier you start taking your kids to the dentist, the better. Taking your child to the dentist earlier on in life gives them more time to get used to the cleanings and regular check-ups.


MAKE A GOING TO THE DENTIST GAME FOR YOUR KIDS.

Pretend like you have a dentist's office in the comfort of your own home and act like you are your child's dentist. Show your kids how the dentist really isn't that bad by going through a routine check-up. Count their teeth and try holding up a mirror and showing them their teeth. You'll obviously want to avoid making drill noises. The point here is to make a dentist office visit sound fun rather than scary.


KEEP OTHERS FROM MISLEADING YOUR CHILD ABOUT THE DENTIST.

Your youngest child could be having a harder time adjusting to the idea of going to the dentist if their older siblings are constantly trying to scare them with made up stories. Be mindful of this and put a stop to it as soon as you can. You don't want your youngest child to feel even more intimidated.


DISTRACTION CAN BE KEY.

Ask the dentist if you can go back with your child. This way you can talk to your child and distract them while the dentist may be reaching for a "scary-looking" instrument.


LEAD BY EXAMPLE.

If you have a fear of going to the dentist, then your kid's are probably going to have a fear as well. Set a good example by going to your regular check-ups and pointing out the positive advantages to going on a regular basis, such as having a better chance at cavity prevention or tooth decay.



Our Dentists in Richland Are Here To Help!

If your children are constantly showing signs that they are scared to go to the dentist, we hope that this blog helped you and that you found it enlightening. Our dentists are kind and make sure that our patients of ALL ages feel comfortable is a priority. To make a dental appointment for your child today, please call 573.765.2510.

October 2020: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and our health clinics at the Lake of the Ozarks want to do everything we can to spread awareness about this. Keep reading this week's blog for a few important statistics concerning Breast Cancer that we found on BREASTCANCER.ORG. If you or someone you know is showing any sort of symptoms of breast cancer, contact your physician at the Lake of the Ozarks as soon as possible for a check-up. Central Ozarks Medical Center - It's not just about what we do, but how we do it that matters here.



BREAST CANCER STATISTICS FROM THE BREASTCANCER.ORG

About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

In 2020, an estimated 276,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 48,530 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.

About 2,620 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2020. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 883.

About 42,170 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2020 from breast cancer. Death rates have been steady in women under 50 since 2007, but have continued to drop in women over 50. The overall death rate from breast cancer decreased by 1.3% per year from 2013 to 2017. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances and earlier detection through screening.

For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.

As of January 2020, there are more than 3.5 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment.

Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2020, it's estimated that about 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers.

In women under 45, breast cancer is more common in Black women than white women. Overall, Black women are more likely to die of breast cancer. For Asian, Hispanic, and Native-American women, the risk of developing and dying from breast cancer is lower. Ashkenazi Jewish women have a higher risk of breast cancer because of a higher rate of BRCA mutations.

Breast cancer incidence rates in the U.S. began decreasing in the year 2000, after increasing for the previous two decades. They dropped by 7% from 2002 to 2003 alone. One theory is that this decrease was partially due to the reduced use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) by women after the results of a large study called the Women’s Health Initiative were published in 2002. These results suggested a connection between HRT and increased breast cancer risk. In recent years, incidence rates have increased slightly by 0.3% per year.
