Why should I choose special needs dentistry?
It’s important for children and adults to come in for routine dental cleanings and exams every six months. Of course, if your child or a family member has special needs, you may realize that it’s important that their dental care offers more customized and tailored care.
In order for our dentists to treat an array of dental issues and provide special needs patients with complete dental offerings, they need to undergo advanced training, as does the whole dental team here at First Dental Home. This ensures that when a patient with special needs walks through our door, we can provide them with the individualized care and assistance they require to make their dental visits easier.
Besides offering treatments and dental serves that are specially designed to each patient and their needs, we can also provide you with practical advice to help make day-to-day care for your smile just a little bit easier.
For example, some children and adults that don’t have full dexterity may find it more difficult to handle a manual toothbrush. As a result, they may be more likely to develop cavities. To counteract this, our dentist may recommend using an electric toothbrush, which will apply the proper amount of pressure to the patient’s teeth to provide a more thorough and easy at-home cleaning.
