My child has special needs and has trouble at the dentist. Will You still work with him?
Of course! Generally, we are still able to perform basic dental exams for children with Special Needs. All of our dentists have experience working with children with special needs, including Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, and dental anxiety.
We are committed to helping your child relax and get the care they need. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s needs, please ask.
How often does my child need a dental exam?
For most children, we recommend two dental exams every year. Occasionally, more frequent exams may be needed for more extensive dental treatment for your child.
Is there anything to look out for between dental exams?
While 2 dental exams every year should catch most issues, you should be on the lookout for some things in-between appointments. These include….
- Temperature sensitivity in the teeth
- Gums that are swollen or bleeding
- Damage to fillings, crowns, or other dental restorations
- Mouth pain, including teeth, tongue, or jaw pain
- Difficulty while chewing or swallowing
- Continuous bad breath even with brushing and flossing
If any of these are popping up in your child, you should contact us to see if you should schedule an additional exam.
