The Special Dental Needs of Special Children
Being the parent of a child with special needs can be tough. You might struggle to handle several priorities simultaneously, which can make it all too easy to forget about your little one’s dental needs. Keep in mind, though, that children with special needs tend to have a higher risk for cavities, gum disease, and other serious oral health issues for a variety of reasons. For instance, physical difficulties may impair their ability to brush and floss on their own. Medications may also lead to inadvertent consequences for their dental health.
How Can You Help My Special Needs Child?
First, our pediatric dentists form a partnership with parents to develop a solid, personalized preventive plan. This may include implementing an effective at-home oral hygiene routine or an in-office treatment like dental sealants or fluoride applications.
Do you have a child with special needs who requires restorative dental care? We’ll gladly create a warm and welcoming environment for even these complex treatments. Sedation dentistry is also available to help your loved one relax. We can’t wait to meet your family and help them have brighter smiles!
Some patients, particularly those with special needs, may have difficulties feeling relaxed in the dental chair. In that case, sedation dentistry can make a huge difference. At our Nashua dental office, we provide several sedation options, such as nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and even general anesthesia for extreme cases in which the patient must be rendered unconscious to undergo treatment. Rest assured that no matter which option you select, your child’s safety is always our top priority!
