At Triangle Pediatric Dentistry, we are pleased to provide quality dental care to children with special needs. Whether your child has autism, downs syndrome, celebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, ADHD, or any other developmental or physical condition that may make dental care challenging, Drs. Hollowell and Porter are an invaluable resource.
Our dentists will create a calm, welcoming environment that helps special needs children relax during dental treatments or procedures. They have the experience and resources necessary to help special needs children stay still and relaxed while they are receiving dental care.
Sedation for Special Needs Children
In some cases, sedation will be needed in order to successfully perform a dental treatment for a special needs child. With conscious sedation, your child will be able to receive the dental care they need with a minimal amount of discomfort. Dr. Hollowell and Dr. Porter have completed advanced training in sedation dentistry and are both licensed by the state of North Carolina to provide sedation to children of all ages. After understanding your child’s behaviors and limitations, they will be able to determine whether conscious sedation makes sense.
Dental Procedures for Children with Special Needs
At Triangle Pediatric Dentistry, we have years of experiencing providing special needs children with a variety of procedures. Some of our most popular services include:
- Oral exams
- Dental cleanings
- Digital x-rays
- Fluoride treatment
- Dental fillings
- Root canals
- Dental crowns
Our office also uses special tools that can make it easier for special needs children to maintain excellent oral health. For examples, many children with mental and physical impairments feel more comfortable using electric toothbrushes, toothbrushes with gripping tools, and floss picks rather than traditional toothbrushes and floss.
