Children with special needs suffer from much higher rates of cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss compared to the general population, and this is because practicing regular oral hygiene and attending routine appointments can be extremely difficult. These children are also more likely to have severe dental phobia, which can make trips to the dentist a potentially traumatic experience.
At Sprout Dentistry for Kids, we do our best to create a warm and welcoming environment where absolutely everyone can feel comfortable, and our team has the training to help special needs children in a way that takes all the anxiety out of their dental care. Working hand-in-hand with parents, we’re able to provide children with everything they need to enjoy optimal oral health.
In addition to providing regular checkups and cleanings, we’re also able to repair any dental damage or decay a child has developed. For more nervous patients, sedation dentistry can be used to guarantee a calmer and more relaxed experience. We can also work with parents to help them and their children develop a home oral hygiene routine so they can take better care of their teeth between visits.
