Special Children Need Special Accommodations
When you’re forced to juggle multiple priorities because you’re caring for your child with special needs, oral health can easily be left behind. However, it’s worth mentioning that children with special needs need attention to their oral health more than those who do not since they tend to be at higher risk of developing problems like tooth decay and gum disease. These problems largely appear due to physical difficulties that affect their ability to brush and floss on their own. In other instances, medications they are taking can also lead to unexpected consequences to their oral health.
How We Can Help Your Special Needs Child
For starters, pediatric dentists are used to working with parents directly to ensure they know the best preventive steps to take for their child’s oral health. For example, they may require strong oral hygiene routines at home or additional preventive services, including dental sealants or fluoride therapy.
If you have a son or daughter that needs restorative dentistry, we’re more than happy to create a warm, caring, and friendly environment for more complex treatments. Additionally, our dental office uses sedation dentistry if needed. We can’t wait to meet your family soon!
Sedation dentistry can be a big help when patients need a little extra push to get comfortable and feel relaxed once they’re in the dental chair. In our dental office in Clinton, you can choose from multiple sedation options for your child, whether it be mild options like nitrous oxide, moderate solutions like oral conscious sedation, or general anesthesia for advanced cases that make extensive dental treatments easier to complete. Regardless of what you choose, we make sure your child’s safety is met first and foremost.
