The Earlier the Better
All special needs children need dental care. Unfortunately, a variety of factors keeps many of them from getting the care they need.
The earlier the dental visit, the better the chance of preventing dental problems. Deep cavities and toothaches can be a cause for behavioral outbursts.
It’s tough for a child experiencing dental pain to sleep, concentrate and eat. Getting your child to the dentist can help him/her thrive in daily life.
Unfamiliarity with surroundings, unpredictability of procedures and physical invasiveness are challenges of a dental exam. Going to the pediatric dentist can be stressful for parents and special needs children. Early visits with a well-trained special needs dentist like Dr. Sara goes a long way toward alleviating these anxieties.
Early intervention and prevention are key. Instruction in correct brushing, flossing, limited snacking and regular visits with a special needs pediatric dentist is essential.
