The Importance Of Special Needs Dentistry

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Special Health Care Needs is an important part of pediatric dentistry. With proper training, board-certified dentists can take each patient’s unique condition into account, ensuring a fulfilling and stress-free experience for your child.

Conditions That Benefit From Special Needs Dentistry

While the term “special needs” may refer to neurotypical patients, it also includes children with other pre-existing health conditions. Special needs children with one or more of the following conditions will benefit from being under our care:

  • Congenital disorders
  • Developmental disabilities
  • Physical and mental disabilities
  • Learning disabilities
  • Neurological diseases
  • Terminal illnesses

Meeting Special Needs Through Sedation Dentistry

It’s normal for most children to feel nervous during a trip to the dentist, but special needs kids may feel their emotions more intensely. To help calm their nerves before an appointment, we offer sedative options that will ease their anxiety before, during, and after each session. By reducing their physical stress with sedation and numbing the pain with general anesthesia, your child will feel more relaxed from start to finish.

The Process Of Consulting With A Special Needs Dentist

We aim to bring a smile to children’s faces with playful sea creature sculptures, murals, and a colorful, interactive environment. 

When you take your child to our dental practice for the first time, we’ll welcome the entire family with a tour of our office. Once they’re acquainted with our friendly staff and fun facilities, we’ll begin the consultation to discuss:

  • Your child’s conditions and needs
  • Dental and medical history
  • Dental goals and concerns
  • Examinations, x-rays, and cleanings
  • Routine, preventive, cosmetic, or orthodontic treatments

Helping Parents Manage Their Special Children’s Oral Health At Home

Besides providing comprehensive pediatric care for your little ones, we’ll also give you tips on how to help them practice good oral hygiene at home. We involve parents every step of the way, so that maintaining your child’s healthy habits is easier and more sustainable.
