Providing Quality Care for Special Needs Children
Children with special needs often have a difficult time receiving dental treatment. Even routine procedures, such as a dental cleaning, can be problematic. Fortunately, at The Oasis Family Dental we offer special needs children’s dentistry to ensure your little one receives the care necessary to promote good oral health.
What is Special Needs Children’s Dentistry?
Children who benefit from this service include those developmental issues, including physical, emotional, and mental impairment. Children with sensory sensitivity or medical conditions that make dental treatment difficult also benefit from special needs children’s dentistry. Our approach includes a calm environment and friendly staff. We also provide longer appointments and a dedicated support staff. We take your child’s developmental issues into account and tailor each visit to his/her individual needs.
Often, we can recommend sedation dentistry to help nervous or anxious children feel relaxed. We can provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral sedation for a deeper level of calming. We will monitor your child’s vitals throughout the procedure and provide detailed aftercare instructions for parents.
