Will my child need special care during dental treatment?
The needs of each child vary, which is why our team always spends the time necessary to get to know each patient, and we really take our time when creating treatment plans and administering treatment. Some special needs patients are more susceptible to tooth decay and oral trauma, which requires considerable attention from a professional like a special needs dentist. Children’s Dentistry of Knoxville also offers relaxing sedation options, which can be very beneficial for children with many different needs. Of course, we will always go over your child’s treatment plan with you before any services are provided.
Are pediatric dentists prepared to care for special children?
One of the best things about taking your child to a pediatric dentist is that pediatric dentists are well-educated on the special needs of children. Pediatric dentists have to attend a few more years of training post-dental school where they learn how to work with children and children with special needs. In fact, some pediatric dentists work with adults with special needs as well, because they are so knowledgeable and experienced in this area.
How can I prevent dental problems for my child?
In addition to maintaining a comprehensive oral care routine at home, we recommend all of our young patients visit us at least twice per year for routine exams and cleanings and take advantage of the preventive services we offer. Dental sealants are clear coatings that can be applied to the teeth to help prevent bacteria from building up, especially on the back molars. Fluoride treatments can also be beneficial for strengthening tooth enamel and reversing early signs of tooth decay.
