At Dr. Patty Miami, we understand the importance of creating a custom treatment plan based on each unique individual and their specific needs. And we are especially aware that for children with special needs, sensitive, personalized care is essential. That’s why our dentists and caring team have undergone extensive training, allowing us to provide dental care for children of all ages, including those with special needs.
Oral Care With Your Child In Mind
Children with special needs are at greater risk for oral health problems, including tooth decay and gum disease. Genetic disorders such as Down syndrome have been shown to cause a delay in tooth eruptions. And certain conditions could also affect how the teeth and jaws develop, the amount of saliva their mouth makes (dry mouth), and can make daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing difficult.
Special needs dentistry is designed to improve the health of children who face mental or physical limitations. It includes prevention and home hygiene strategies, as well as routine evaluations and cleanings.
Oral care for children with special needs requires both advanced knowledge and increased adaptation and accommodative measures that go beyond routine treatment. At Dr. Patty Miami, we have the experience necessary to provide exceptional dental care while keeping in mind the unique needs of the kids we see.
