Special Needs Pediatric Dentistry

The dental care needs of special needs children can differ from patient to patient, however, all children should first visit their pediatric dentist by their first birthday or first tooth eruption. The dentist will examine your child’s gums and teeth along with their medical history before devising a preventive care plan for your child. This first visit will lay the foundation of good dental health for rest of your child’s life.

Preventive dentistry is effective for special needs children, as many special children can be at risk for gum disease and tooth decay. We will help initiate preventive dental care and educate you and your child on a preventive dental care plan that uses consistent brushing and flossing methods at home and professional cleanings, fluoride treatments, and checkups at our offices.

In the event that your special needs child needs extra care during their appointment, Southern Village Pediatric Dentistry is prepared and experienced to ensure that your child is comfortable and safe during their procedure. Mild sedation or restraints may be used during their treatment in order to properly implement the procedure while keeping your child calm.
