Most Common Special Needs Dentistry Questions Answered

Babcock Family Dental offers more than general dentistry services and provides dental care for those with special needs. Because the spectrum of special needs dentistry is so great, it can leave individuals with many questions. In this section, we attempt to clear up some of these questions. However, if you have additional questions, please feel free to call us at 210-732-3333.

  1.   Do patients with special needs have specific dental concerns? Because “special needs dentistry” is an umbrella term, not every special needs patient has the same exact dental concerns, but many have special dental needs. Children with disabilities and special needs have a higher chance of developing health problems—this staggering statistic includes oral health. Regular dental visits with a special needs dentist can help families stay on top of impending oral health issues.
  2. Do you use sedation dentistry on all special needs patients before dental work? In short, absolutely not. Sedation dentistry is an excellent tool for those that are antsy or nervous, but it’s ideal for every single patient and only recommended when deemed necessary. With our patient team trained in special needs dental care, we partner with caretakers and individuals with special needs to create a treatment plan that works for them.
  3.  My special needs or disabled patient has behavior issues. Will you treat them? Our San Antonio dental team can treat all types of patients, including those that struggle with behavioral issues, and we can create a treatment plan to ensure that they receive the care they need.
