For children with special needs, certain threats, like cavities and bruxism, occur more commonly. This can be due to a variety of reasons, including a parent’s hesitance to take their child to a dentist they don’t quite trust, a lack of knowledge from providers about accessible dental products, and more. Fortunately, our Trinity Pediatric Dentistry team has the techniques, instruments, and expertise to provide your favorite smile in the world with comfortable and outstanding dental care.

Dental Tips for Patients with Special Needs

A key component of great oral health is a good at-home routine. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, along with our team, recommends that you brush your child’s teeth at least twice a day using fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and rinse with antimicrobial mouthwash at least once a day. This will help ward off cavities, gum disease, and tooth infections. If you would like some recommendations, including tips and tricks to make these actions more accessible for your child to do on their own, our team would be happy to help, just ask us during their next appointment!
