Special Needs Dentistry
What is Special Needs Dentistry?
Special needs and disabilities of all kinds can sometimes make it difficult for your child to receive the dental care that they need. We offer high-quality special needs dentistry care to children and teens of all ages. Our goal is to provide them with the care that they need in a calm and relaxed environment. We offer many different types of sedation as well, which can help make your child’s appointment more comfortable.
Why would Special Needs Dentistry be needed?
Having special needs or a disability of any kind can make it almost impossible for your child to sit still in the dental chair. Likewise, they may not be able to sit in the dental chair and be reclined because of a health condition. Because of this, it can be difficult to visit a typical dental office where they are not necessarily equipped to handle this unique situation. We have many different amenities available as well as the skills and training necessary to accommodate your special needs child.
What makes your child a candidate for Special Needs Dentistry?
If your child has a disability of any kind, they can benefit from special needs dentistry. We have the skills necessary to provide them with a comfortable and comprehensive appointment. We offer preventative, cosmetic and restorative care to your child so that they can leave the office feeling confident in their smile. Special needs dentistry is performed by our highly-trained dental professionals who have years of experience working with children.
What can be expected during Special Needs Dentistry?
The first appointment will allow us to get to know you and your child. We will consult with you about their needs and how to go about providing them with the dental care they need. The first appointment will often include a cleaning and examination. This allows us to remove buildup from their teeth as well as to find any problems that might be currently present. We then create a treatment plan specific to their needs and schedule them to come in at a later time to have the work done in our office.
