How to prepare your child for special needs dentistry
Children with ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Down Syndrome, and other special needs sometimes have difficulties taking proper care of their teeth at home, and also when they visit the dentist because they have severe oral aversions and hypersensitivity. Their lack of social skills can also pose other challenges when these children are placed in a dental setting.
You can help your child feel more comfortable with dental visits by:
- Starting dental visits at an early age and maintaining regular checkups at 6-month intervals
- Not showing your dental anxieties in front of the kids
- Educating your children about the importance of good dental care and familiarizing them with in-office dental procedures by acting our dental exams
- Maintaining proper at-home oral hygiene practices to reduce time spent in the dentist’s chair
Dr. Ramirez understands the importance of familiarizing children with special needs to the dental setting. In this regard, she uses Touch Points Training to assist with her special needs dentistry services, which include teaching children basic dental hygiene skills.
