Oral and dental health is important for everybody. However, some people face greater challenges when it comes to treatment and even simple checkups. Every individual has specific needs, which means that making dentistry accessible to everybody must involve compassion and understanding.
For special needs patients, challenges may include dental phobia, learning difficulties or physical conditions that make receiving treatment more complex. While these issues require that dentists facilitate reasonable accommodations, there is no reason why everybody shouldn’t benefit from the same high standard of dentistry.
Dentistry Comfort & Relaxation
In most cases, people with special needs can enjoy the same level of dentistry as everybody else when the dentist creates a welcoming and comfortable environment. The team at Restore Dental is committed to fostering close relationships with patients, where trust is firmly established. This is the first step toward ensuring that you or your loved one feels relaxed and safe.
Sedation dentistry is an option that can help patients who are nervous or suffer from dental phobia. Restore Dental is also passionate about educating our patients in a way that promotes positive associations with oral hygiene, checkups and any necessary treatment.
