Why Does My Special Needs Child Need Special Treatment?

Children with special needs tend to experience much higher rates of common oral health problems compared to other kids. The reasons for this are multi-faceted, but it basically comes down to the fact that many children with special needs are not able to practice consistent oral hygiene, and they also have higher rates of fear and anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist. Navigating all of this is tricky, but our pediatric dentists have years of experience doing so—they make it look easy even though it definitely isn’t!

How Our Team Can Help

As pediatric dentists, our doctors have received dedicated training on how to treat children with a wide variety of mental, physical, behavioral, and sensory special needs. In addition to making sure we’re able to accommodate them in our office, our dentists know how to go at a child’s pace so they don’t become overwhelmed. We can also work with parents to help establish a realistic oral hygiene routine at home and a teeth-friendly diet so that the risk of problems is drastically reduced between appointments.

Sedation Dentistry is Available

Sedation dentistry is a selection of services that are designed to calm a child’s nerves so our team can do their work while everyone remains relaxed and comfortable. Each method we offer is safe and has successfully helped countless children in our office before, and we offer different levels based on the needs of the child. Everything from nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to general anesthesiology is available, meaning you won’t have to stress about your child’s comfort and well-being while they’re in our care.
