Dental Sedation For Patients with Special Needs

Dental Sedation For Patients with Special Needs

Providing sedation for patients with special needs helps our patients receive the care they need, safely and comfortably.

At ProActive Dental Studio, our Surrey dentists are dedicated to providing quality dental care for each patient. We adapt the way we provide that care based on individual needs, and this naturally applies to our patients with special needs as well.

The comfort and safety of our patients with special needs is our top priority during their dental treatment. We offer various anesthesia and sedation options at our dental office.

How can sedation help?

For various medical, mental, physical or psychological reasons, dental treatment can sometimes be difficult or impossible for our patients with special needs.

Sedation or anesthesia allow many of our patients to undergo the dental care they need, that they might otherwise be unable to tolerate.

We most commonly use dental sedation for patients with special needs for the following reasons:

  • Lack of cooperation
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Multiple morbidities (co-occurring diseases)
  • Pediatric autism

How does the sedation process work?

Getting to know our patients at the outset of treatment is important in making sure that they are cared for in a manner that works for their personalities and needs. Depending on the patient's needs and age, we may also discuss treatment options with a responsible family member or guardian.

Patients who have severe impairments or multiple medical problems will be thoroughly evaluated by an anesthesiologist prior to undergoing any treatment with anesthesia.

Whatever type of sedation we end up using, the patient will be closely monitored through the duration of the procedure by an appropriate dental professional.

Every patient who undergoes sedation dentistry of any kind at our practice must be escorted to and from the appointment by a friend, family member or guardian, as most types of sedation take some time to wear off.

If you think that sedation dentistry might help you or a loved one undergo necessary dental care, please contact our Surrey dental office.
