If you have a child with special needs, you may have unique concerns when it comes to their dental care. Our dentists at Smile Town Langley explain how we can help your child get the dental care they deserve.
Dental Care for Special Needs Children
When it comes to seeking dental treatment for children with special needs, parents may wonder how to find the right dentist for their child.
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 a tall task.
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 Langley offer specialized dental care for kids with special needs
How Our Langley Dentists Can Help
Some children have a more difficult time coping with certain dental procedures or sustained treatment than others. They may become anxious, feel frightened, or have physical or emotional barriers that make treatment more challenging.
Our team makes sure we take the appropriate steps to help put children's and parent's minds at ease. We will always do our best to keep you both calm and informed about what will happen during the visit and offer safe, effective sedation and anesthesia options to help make the process run as smoothly as possible.
