Special needs dentistry helps children and individuals with special needs receive quality dental care and maintain their oral health. Children with special needs are often at greater risk for tooth decay and dental disease, and they may require specific treatments or additional care to maintain a healthy mouth and smile. Our pediatric dentist and team are dedicated to providing children with special needs the quality care they need in a comfortable and compassionate environment.
Anyone with physical or mental limitations or other challenges that prevent them from receiving standard care is a candidate for special needs dentistry. This include conditions such as:
- Autism spectrum disorder
- Cerebral palsy
- Development delay
- Down syndrome
- Multiple sclerosis
Our pediatric dentist and team work with both children and with their primary caregivers to create individual treatment plans based on the child’s needs and their ability to tolerate treatment. We take special care to ensure that the child feels comfortable and are happy to modify treatments to accommodate specific situations and needs. Please call our office and schedule a consultation with our pediatric dentist for more information.
