My 5 yr old is terrified from the dentist and Iím out of ideas how to convince her it wonít hurt, dentist is just going to have a quick look, etc. Iím spending an awful lot of time to try and make her feel comfortable with the idea but when we get to the dentist she gets scared at the door and it takes forever to get her even sit on that chair.
Also, I was asked to leave the room in order for the dentist to distract her and calm her down but thatís not what happened. She refuses to open her mouth for them to check her teeth but I know for sure there are already several cavities that need to be taken care of asap.
Please help with any tips or tricks to get her open her mouth for the dentist?
