Importance of Dental Care

The more care and attention you give your child’s oral health, the less likely they are to develop dental issues later down the road. Unfortunately, tooth decay and gum disease are quite common among those with special needs, especially those with physical impairments that make it difficult to brush and floss every day. No matter what your child’s needs may be, we strive to create a smooth and seamless experience for everyone we serve and are happy to offer advice on making at-home oral hygiene easier for you and your family.

Sedation Dentistry

Using sedation to aid children with special needs is very common. We offer three strengths of sedation for you to consider, including nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation as well. At your appointment, we’ll gladly go over the benefits of each of these options in detail so you can make the most informed decision for your child.
