13 Aug Special Needs Dental Care
Do you have a child or loved one with special needs such as Autism Spectrum, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, developmental delay, debilitating physical impairments? At South Tulsa Smiles our dentists understand that these individuals require special dental care.
Many special needs patients may be more susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease, or oral trauma. They may also require medication or a diet that is detrimental to their dental health. There are also patients who have medical problems such as assorted neurological diagnoses who may have uncontrollable movements. For these patients, dental treatment without sedation or general anesthesia is impossible.
South Tulsa Smiles has a medical residency in anesthesiology and is one of the few general dentists in the state of Oklahoma who can provide both sedation and general anesthesia to these special patients who would otherwise not be able to receive dentistry in a conventional dental setting.
Caregivers often turn to a hospital setting for dental care of their loved ones. This setting can be scary to the patient and also quite expensive. South Tulsa Smiles in Tulsa, Oklahoma can provide much-needed dental services to special needs patients in a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere and give your loved one the care they need under relaxing, general sedation.
South Tulsa Smiles provides compassionate dental services, thorough and reasonable oral care for your adult child, whether her challenge is Autism, Picks disease, Cerebral Palsy, Asperger’s, or another disability. Help is available. Call us today to learn more!
