Better Patient Accommodations
Your child’s orthodontist can do things like adjust office lighting and sound for patients with sensory issues, use special equipment to treat patients, and provide additional staff to ensure that patients with special needs get the personalized care they need.
Expert Care For Every Patient
Special needs orthodontists know how to treat patients with a wide variety of physical, mental, and developmental impairments. Your child’s orthodontist will know how to keep them safe and comfortable as they get the orthodontic care they need.
Comfort With Desensitization
We offer a wide variety of desensitization toys and methods to help your child relax during their appointment. Desensitization is a very useful technique for patients who may otherwise have trouble being treated in a traditional orthodontic environment.
Sensory Toys Available
No child deserves to struggle with fear or pain during treatment. Sensory toys are an effective way to help your kiddo with special needs or dental anxiety relax in the chair. Talk to us to learn more about how we can help your child feel at ease when they come in for their appointment.
Behavior Guidance Counseling
Sitting in the dental chair isn’t always easy! That’s why our compassionate team offers behavior guidance counseling. With our gentle directions and upbeat approach, we’ll empower your child to face challenges, overcome obstacles, and gain confidence as they learn how to take charge of their oral health.
Rest assured that your child is receiving top-notch, specialized care with our Board-Certified Orthodontist. To be recognized by The American Board of Orthodontics, doctors must undergo extensive training in the orthodontic field in addition to their standard dental degrees.
Calm, Fun Environment
When it comes to providing a soothing patient experience, the little details are a big deal at our office. From the kindest and most qualified team of smile pros you’ll ever meet to our state-of-the-art technology, come see why kids love coming to Everyday Orthodontics!
Initial Health Discussion
To begin, your special needs orthodontist will meet with you and/or your child, and review their medical history, records, medications they're taking, and other details. Every patient with special needs is different, so it’s important for us to develop a full understanding of their health and conditions.
Customized Treatment Plan
Your doctor will then create a customized treatment plan for your child with their unique needs and challenges in mind. This may involve specialized appliances or techniques to ensure an effective, comfortable treatment process for your child. We will also provide guidance on maintaining good oral hygiene and orthodontic habits throughout the process. This is particularly important for children with special needs as they may need additional help keeping up with it.
Monitoring & Adjustments
Throughout the treatment process, your child will attend regular appointments so we can monitor their progress and make any necessary adjustments to their orthodontic appliances or treatment plan. For kids with special needs, the frequency of appointments and the duration of treatment may be longer depending on the complexity of their case and their ability to comply. Rest assured, your orthodontist will work with you and your child's other healthcare providers so their treatment plan is safe, effective, and consistent with your child's overall care plan.
