What We Do To Help Special Needs Patients Enjoy Dental Care

The right dental care can benefit your appearance, your health, and your ability to bite and chew with comfort. In other words, care can have significant value over time, which is why you should stay consistent with regular dental exams. Our Katy, TX dentist’s office wants all patients to feel comfortable when they see us for treatment. That includes patients with special needs who may have found dental treatment difficult to arrange. Many practices are not prepared to help people in need of assistance to comfortably receive care. If you have struggled to find help, or if you are looking for a practice prepared to assist a family member with special needs, let us know!

The Value Of Regular Dental Care

Regular dental exams provide you with feedback about the health of your smile. This does more than just alert you to possible problems with dental decay and gum disease (though these alerts are important). At each visit, your teeth will be cleaned of any tartar or plaque deposits present, and you will receive warnings about trouble like TMJ disorder, a joint alignment issue that can cause persistent pain. Because we are committed to making our support available to those who have a hard time finding dental services that work for them, we can make sure people with special needs are receiving these important benefits.

Finding The Right Way To Accommodate Special Needs Patients

We can work with individuals and families to ensure we provide the right treatment experience for someone with special needs that need to be accommodated. We want every patient’s turn in the dentist’s chair to be a positive experience. To ensure that we deliver the right support, we take the time to get to know our patients, learn about potential causes of discomfort, and take care to fully support their smile while tending to their individual needs and concerns.

How Sedation Makes Treatment Experiences Easier

Sometimes, patients have a difficult time with all aspects of dental care, which can make any procedure – even a routine checkup – harder to arrange. In situations where it is needed, we can work with anesthesiologists in our office to safely deliver dental sedation. We provide multiple treatment options, including sedation with nitrous oxide, to make sure these patients feel comfortable while they receive beneficial treatment.
