Special Services for Our Special Patients
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry characterizes special needs as any physical, behavioral, developmental, cognitive, mental, sensory, or emotional impairment or limiting conditions requiring healthcare intervention, medical management, or the use of specialized services.
At Crabtree Pediatric dentistry, our team is highly trained, experienced, and committed to providing the best possible special needs dental care to patients of all ages. Our accessible private rooms are beautifully equipped to provide a comfortable and relaxing experience. We're happy to make provisions for any child who needs a little extra attention, including those with dental phobia or anxiety.
What Are the Dental Concerns of Children with Special Needs?
Every child requires routine oral health care for long-term healthy smiles. However, children with special needs are usually at a higher risk of developing dental problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, and oral trauma. That's because some medications or dietary restrictions can be detrimental to their dental health. Brushing and flossing may also pose a challenge, interfering with proper oral hygiene.
The best way to minimize any risks to your child's oral health is through quality, personalized dental care, and your trusted team at Crabtree Pediatric Dentistry provides just that! We encourage you to maintain your child's twice-a-year dental exams and cleanings, during which our team will recommend any preventive or restorative dental treatment necessary to maintain a healthy smile.
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist for Special Needs Dentistry?
Pediatric dentists are dental professionals with two or more years of specialized training beyond dental school. Their education includes a focus on the unique needs of patients with special needs as well as behavior guidance techniques to encourage positive interactions.
At Crabtree Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that our patients with special needs are sometimes anxious about visiting the dentist and may find it hard to sit still during treatment. Our sedation services and gentle techniques will ensure every child is comfortable and free of stress while receiving the highest quality of care. Our team will never spare any effort to ensure every dental visit is a positive and happy experience.
