My teen has special needs and has trouble at the dentist. Will you still work with him?
Yes! In most cases, we can perform basic dental exams for teenagers with special needs. All our dentists have experience working with special needs teenagers, including those with Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, and dental anxiety.
We’re committed to ensuring your teens get the care they need and deserve. If you have any questions or concerns about your special needs teenager’s dental care, do not hesitate to give us a call.
How often does my teenager need a dental exam?
Teenagers in particular should receive two dental exams a year. In some cases, additional exams could be needed for more extensive dental treatment.
Should I be looking for anything between dental exams?
While most issues will be caught early on with two dental exams every year, 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 teen, contact us to see if you should schedule an additional exam.
