Will preventive dentistry benefit my child?

Did you know that cavities, or tooth decay, are one of the most common dental problems in children? Taking your child to preventive dental care visits can help prevent oral disease, decay, and other dental problems from developing. With or without special needs and disabilities, every child will benefit from preventive dentistry approaches such as professional cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants.

How often should a child with special needs visit the dentist?

Children, just like adults, should visit the dentist for routine checkups and cleanings twice per year. However, dental needs and development will vary for every child. When your child visits for special needs dentistry, Dr. Ramirez will thoroughly examine their oral health and provide you and your child with tips and tricks to enhance your child’s dental care at home as well as recommend how often your child should visit our office.

How can I help my child be comfortable at the dentist?

Bringing your child to the dentist at a young age can help establish comfort and successful dental care for your child. To help your child with special needs and disabilities feel comfortable, you can take several steps. Steps to help with comfort include taking them to our office before their visit, helping them become familiar with oral health, and informing Dr. Ramierz and the rest of our team about your child’s usual behavior so we can best care for your child during their appointment.
