Importance of Dental Care for Special Needs Patients

Across the board, special needs children tend to experience a much higher rate of dental problems than their peers, including cavities, gum disease, tooth loss, and more. Like other aspects of their lives, ensuring they have proper oral care takes some extra effort. But our team is more than happy to work with parents to ensure their child gets what they need both in the dental office and at home.

How We Help Special Needs Patients

Firstly, we understand that “special needs” can refer to a wide array of conditions and symptoms, so we always personalize our approach based on a child’s specific situation. In addition to doing everything we can to help them feel comfortable in our pediatric dental office, we’ll also work with you to help them establish a consistent dental hygiene routine at home. And we can quickly repair any broken or decayed teeth along the way so your child is always ready to smile.

Sedation Dentistry for Special Needs Patients

A dental office can be a scary place for children with special needs, which is why we’re ready to offer sedation dentistry to calm any nerves. We offer multiple levels of sedation, so you should be able to choose the one that best suits your child. Sedation can be utilized for any type of procedure, ranging from simple checkups to extensive restorative work.
