Information About Special Needs Dentistry
We understand that for most children, the idea of visiting the dentist isn’t one that is met with positive imagery. While some children don’t mind stepping foot inside a dental office, sometimes just the thought of sitting in the dentist’s chair can make your child upset, anxious or even angry.
If you are a parent of a child with special needs, you may have even more reservations about getting your child the proper dental care they need while also making the situation as easy and smooth as possible on everyone. Here at Twelve Corners Pediatric Dentistry we understand that children with special needs also need a little extra special attention and care when it comes to visiting a doctor, which is exactly what we do the minute your little one steps into our office.
Making sure your child receives proper dental care is important for any growing child. Of course, we understand that having them sit for even a simple dental cleaning can be a challenge. Our friendly, compassionate staff coupled with our gentle techniques ensures that the dentistry and treatment your child gets is only the best. Plus, the extra attention they’ll receive while in our office will have them feeling like a celebrity.
Whether your child is dealing with behavioral, emotional, physical or developmental conditions, our dental staff here at Twelve Corners Pediatric Dentistry has the experience, passion, and knowledge to ensure that your children get the special, individualized care they deserve, which can also put any parent’s mind at ease.
Maintaining good oral health is important for all children, but children with some genetic disorders or other developmental conditions may face malformed or missing teeth. They may be more inclined to grind their teeth or face tooth decay. This is why making sure that they come in at least every six months for routine exams and cleanings is of the utmost importance for your little one. The sooner we can detect certain issues in your child the easier it will be to treat.
Plus, during these visits, we can also take the time to answer all of your questions about at-home dental care and nutrition to make sure to protect your child’s growing smile from decay, gum disease and infection. These dental visits are also a great time for parents to have their questions addressed and their concerns assuaged. By working closely with each parent, we can make sure that any child with special needs gets the very best dental care they possibly can.
