Dr. Davis has been our dentist for almost 10 years. Each visit is a pleasant one with lots of smiles and friendly faces. Her team is responsive and caring. She responded to an emergency dental situation over the weekend within 30 minutes, called in a prescription, and saw us first things the next business day. We are more than pleased with Dr. Davis and the Healthy Smiles team!

Children with special needs require careful and compassionate attention with a tailored approach to their oral care. As a pediatric dentist in Frisco, we see children from all walks of life and those that have special needs hold an important place in our hearts. There are several factors to consider when discussing oral care, including routine visits and any treatments that may be required.

How Do Special Needs Affect Children’s Teeth?

Children with special needs may have certain habits that affect their oral health. For example, children who have been diagnosed with ADHD may engage in habits such as teeth grinding and nail biting. They may also chew on objects like pens and pencils, which can affect their dental health. They may also be taking medications that have side effects like dry mouth. When your child experiences dry mouth, the likelihood of developing cavities and gum disease increases.

Tackle Preventive Care for Children with Special Needs

Dental health is vital for maintaining overall health. Good oral hygiene practices begin at home. Turning oral care into an enjoyable activity can help keep your child’s teeth in good health. Aside from practicing good oral hygiene at home, it’s important you schedule regular visits to the dentist for cleanings. Once you reach our pediatric dentist office in Frisco, you’ll be offered additional treatments to prevent damage to your child’s teeth. Flouride treatments both strengthen and protect your child’s teeth—fluoride is applied as a flavored varnish and is useful in preventing tooth decay. Another way to protect your child’s teeth is to apply dental sealants. Dental sealants are applied to the teeth’s biting surfaces and form a protective layer that shields against tooth decay and dental damage.

How to Prepare for a Successful Dental Office Visit

Your dentist office visit can be a successful and enjoyable experience with a little bit of preparation. To keep us well-informed, bring with you a list of any medications your child is currently taking. Prepare your child by sharing child-friendly videos and books that describe dental visits so they can become acquainted with the upcoming event. Let us know how we can best interact with your child—we do everything in our power to tailor the visit to your child’s needs, so he or she can remain as comfortable as possible throughout your visit.

When you show up calm and empowered with your child’s medical history details, we are able to provide the individualized care you need. Please let us know how we can make your visit a pleasant experience and our team will work hard to make sure you and your child feel at home while in our care.
