Should we allow our pediatric dentist to use a papoose board? Our two year old hates going to the dentist, and fights nearly everything that the dentist tries to do. He would like to try using a papoose board to help keep our son from moving, but I don't

Should we allow our pediatric dentist to use a papoose board? Our two year old hates going to the dentist, and fights nearly everything that the dentist tries to do. He would like to try using a papoose board to help keep our son from moving, but I don't

In my opinion: This is a very tough challenge. A good pedodontist will know best how to prepare the child for the visit-how the parents prepare for & act before and at the office is important. If already on the wrong foot, I would first consider seeing another pedodontist for a new start. If nothing else works, I would allow a papoose board for an exam. For any major work, sedation in a hospital is usually best. ...Read more
