Questions You Might Have About Special Needs Dentistry

The search for a dental office that is ready to work with special needs patients can lead to frustration. Many practices are limited in their ability to help those with different needs. Because of this, some families must reach out to general medical offices for help, even when they just want to arrange general dental care! Our Katy, TX dentist’s office is prepared to provide dental care to patients with special needs. To make sure we provide the right support for our patients, we can take time to learn about them and to answer questions from family members who want to make sure they have the right practice. During the discussion, we can answer questions you may have about who we can help, and how we make care more accessible to those who have difficulties undergoing treatment.

How We Make Care Accessible To Those With Special Needs

Our practice is happy to say that we welcome individuals with special needs who have struggled to find dental care. Both children and adults who have special needs can rely on us to consistently care for them, prevent problems with with tooth decay and gum disease, and address any active concerns that arise. We take time to learn how we can best serve the people who come to us for treatment, and we can also work with family members to provide the right support.

How Sedation Makes Treatment More Comfortable For Patients

For some individuals, even routine dental care can be difficult to undergo. In these circumstances, dental sedation can be used to help them stay calm and receive important care. Our practice works with anesthesiologists, so we can safely sedate an individual in our care. With access to different forms of sedation like nitrous oxide, oral sedatives, and even IV sedation when necessary, we can ensure that the person in our care stays comfortable throughout the duration of their visit.

The Importance Of Having Access To Consistent Dental Care

Consistent care means fewer issues with oral health trouble like tooth decay and gum disease, prompt care for dental injuries and other concerns, and guidance on daily care. Without reliable access to oral health support, individuals with special needs are more vulnerable to trouble with tartar buildup, overlooked cavities, and more. We can provide routine dental exams and cleanings, and when needed we provide a safe and friendly atmosphere for restorative dental services!
