What is Special Needs Dentistry?

Special children sometimes need special attention to dental hygiene. Some special children are very susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease or oral trauma. Others require medication or diet detrimental to dental health. Still, other children have physical difficulty with effective dental habits at home.

At Gentle Care Pediatric Dentistry, our team is trained specifically in dental care for mentally and physically disabled children and are able to offer the highest caliber of service. Treatment for children with special health care needs includes regular preventive and restorative care to keep their smiles healthy.

This can include checkups, cleaning, crowns, or cosmetic bonding. We recommend regular fluoride treatments and preventive sealants to help give your child additional defense against cavities. Depending on your child’s needs, we also offer tooth-saving nerve treatment and space maintainers in cases of early tooth loss.

Your child may require additional attention to ensure their care is accessible, safe and effective. These measures may include pillows to help stabilize your child’s head during exams, mouth props for to help your child hold open their mouth, or stand-up dental treatment as necessary. Many children may also need special toothbrushes, floss holders and other oral health aids to help them practice good at-home dental hygiene.

Each case is different, and your child’s needs are unique. The team at Gentle Care Pediatric Dentistry will provide the gentle, comprehensive care they deserve.

I've been bringing my two girls her for two years now and we love it. Great customer service and Dr Markos is very nice. Loving place and great environment.

Been taking my kids here for years. The staff and dentist are awesome. The place is friendly for children, and even has video games in the front to ease the kids anxiety about dentists. If you live in the area and have children, I highly recommend this practice.
