The Special Dental Needs of Special Children

To put it simply, children with special needs often experience unique dental issues as a result of their condition. This can manifest as malformed or missing teeth, or even permanent teeth that don’t erupt when they’re supposed to. Other common issues include overcrowding, poor alignment, and bite issues that make it more difficult for them to brush and floss. They might also be on medications that influence their oral health; certain medicines may contain excessive amounts of sugar, or might have agents that cause dry mouth, which increases the risk of tooth decay.

When it’s time for your child’s visit, we’ll do everything in our power to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience for them. Our entire staff is dedicated to providing high-quality and compassionate care to all children, and we’re familiar with a wide range of conditions that fall under the “special needs” category. Rest assured, we’ll make sure we inform you about your child’s specific risk for oral health issues, as well as how we can work together moving forward to maintain optimal oral health.

Sedation Dentistry

If your child has trouble simply remaining still while visiting the dentist, believe it or not, we can help! Likewise, if they feel stressed whenever it’s time to leave for their appointment, there is an answer: sedation dentistry. We’re excited to offer solutions including nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and even general anesthesia if the circumstances call for it—after meeting with your child, we can begin making suggestions based on their needs. When you call us to make an appointment, let us know how we can accommodate you and your little one, regardless of their needs!
