If you have a loved one in Atlanta with special needs, it’s important to make sure that they get the dental attention that they deserve. Regular visits can prevent toothaches, gum disease, and other issues that can be difficult for anyone to deal with.
Dealing with Anxiety In Special Needs Patients
If your loved one is hesitant about visiting the dentist, we can help them with their anxiety by providing them with some sort of sedation to ease their anxiety.
Depending on the procedure that needs to be done, we can use a variety of calming techniques like nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation (a pill that’ll make them sleepy and relaxed), or IV sedation (which will provide them with the deepest level of sedation).
Meeting the Needs of Your Loved One
We can evaluate your loved one and determine the proper plan of care for them to help them with their oral needs. Perhaps we need to dedicate a specific team member to care for them at each visit, which helps build a stronger relationship with some people. Patients that have an extra hard time brushing their teeth may need to come more frequently than others to ensure they stay cavity-free. We can also give you tools and tips to help establish and maintain good oral health practices at home.
