Do you have a child with special needs? You likely have unique concerns when it comes to their dental care. Our dentists at Smile Town North Delta explain how we can help your child get the care they deserve.
The Importance of Dental Care for Special Needs Children
When it comes to seeking dental treatment for children with special needs, parents may have many questions about finding the right dentist for them.
It may also be challenging to get them engaged in caring for their teeth. Sometimes, getting them to brush and floss every day or see the dentist can feel like climbing up a steep hill.
If your child has a developmental, emotional, cognitive, medical or physical condition, they may experience an increased sense of discomfort or anxiety when it's time to practice at-home dental care or go to the dentist.
These conditions may include:
- Hearing & Vision Impairment
- Seizure Disorders
- Down Syndrome
- Craniofacial Conditions (e.g. cleft palate)
- Developmental and Learning Disabilities
- ADD & ADHD
Fortunately, our dentists at Smile Town North Delta can provide the dental care your child with special needs requires.
What can your North Delta dentists do to help?
Some children have a more difficult time coping with certain dental procedures or sustained treatment than others do. They may become anxious, feel frightened or have physical or emotional barriers that make treatment more challenging.
That's why we take steps to help put children's and parents' minds at ease, from helping to keep you both calm and informed about what will happen during the visit to offering safe, effective sedation and anesthesia options that will help your kid get the dental care they need.
