What is lap to lap technique


Posted on 3/7/2022 by Barbara Ketchum
What is lap to lap techniqueDental anxiety is frequent in youngsters, but a pediatric dentist may assist to calm the nerves and reduce anxiety. One method is to use the lap-to-lap strategy. During the examination, your child will partially lie on your lap staring at you, while his or her head will be in the dentist's lap. This will assist to reduce fear and develop your child's trust in the dentist since you are telling them that the dentist is there to help them rather than hurt them.

Benefits of the lap to lap technique


A young child may not be still during dental visits, the lap-to-lap technique ensures that the child is comfortable and does stress you or the dentist during checkups and treatments. The child's dental visit is supposed to last for about 10 minutes and the dentist will have checked the condition of the teeth. The lap-to-lap technique builds the confidence of the child and they will have an easy time whenever they are in the dentist's office.

What dental procedures can we use during lap to lap technique?


During the lap to lap technique, the dentist can perform simple procedures that do not require anesthesia. If a procedure is more complicated the dentist will use anesthesia so that the child does not become restless and to do away with pain. The simple procedures include cleanings, fluoride treatments, and x rays on the other and the complex procedures may include extraction of an ankylosed tooth.

Our dentists are committed to offering you the best services and will work towards reducing anxiety and calming the nerves by using the lap-to-lap technique. Bring your child for oral care so that you can prepare the child don take care of their teeth in the future. Schedule your visit with our dentists
