3 Things We Can Do To Help Patients With Special Needs

Individuals who are on the spectrum can have a difficult time in the dentist’s chair, and because of this it may be hard to find a practice who can accommodate their needs. Many people with special needs loved ones will have to depend on a general medical facility to provide oral health care for them, even when they only need to schedule routine services. Our Katy, TX dentist’s office is ready to provide dental services to special needs individuals, and we can work with families to make sure that our patients are enjoying an approach to care that is truly right for them.

1. We Work With Families To Ensure Patients Have The Right Treatment Experience

Every patient should have their individual needs and preferences factored into how they are treated. Our office will work with family members to make sure that we understand how we can provide quality care for individuals with special needs. By taking the time to learn more about the people who come to us for oral health care, we can build better relationships while also tailoring treatments to fit people who count on us for services.

2. We Can Work With An Anesthesiologist To Make Regular Services More Comfortable

Even preventive dental care can be difficult for some patients with special needs. We understand this, and we appreciate the need to make these visits as comfortable as possible. When it is appropriate to do so, we will work with anesthesiologists to make sure patients remain comfortable the entire time they are in the dentist’s chair. Because of this, we can make sure that the person you care about is able to enjoy the benefits of routine dental exams, which help us prevent possible problems that can cause discomfort and health issues.

3. We Can Provide Restorative Treatments In Our Office

When it is called for, we can make sure our patients stay comfortable as active oral health concerns are addressed. In addition to using technology and sedation to make restorative dental work easier, we commit to making a visit, and the treatment itself, as comfortable as possible. Our work with anesthesiologists can make a potentially difficult treatment experience for a special needs patient easier. Patients also benefit because they will be able to see a trusted care provider instead of visiting a general medical office to have necessary work done.
