The Special Dental Needs of Special Children
As a parent of a child with special needs, you might find yourself struggling to juggle multiple priorities at the same time, which is precisely why oral health can easily be forgotten. However, it’s important to note that children with special needs are typically more likely to have a higher risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other serious dental problems. These can occur due to physical difficulties, which make it difficult to brush and floss on their own. It can also be caused by medications that lead to unintended consequences for their oral health.
How Can You Help My Special Needs Child?
To start, our pediatric dentists work closely with parents so they can help them better develop solid preventive strategies. This might include a strong oral hygiene routine at home or an in-office service like fluoride treatment or dental sealants.
Do you have a son or daughter that is in need of restorative care? We’re happy to provide a warm, gentle and welcoming environment for complex treatments like these. We can even provide sedation dentistry as necessary. We hope to meet your family in the near future!
When it comes to helping patients feel comfortable and relaxed as soon as they reach the dental chair, sedation dentistry can be a big help. In our pediatric dental office in Randolph, you have several sedation options to consider, including mild nitrous oxide, moderate oral conscious sedation, and even general anesthesia for advanced cases where the patient must be unconscious to receive care. No matter what option you choose, your child’s safety is our number-one priority!
