Our clinic has the knowledge and equipment needed to deal with the behavioural difficulties of these children. We also have the patience, the will and above all the love for children with disabilities, so that we can make their treatment in the clinic efficient.
As specialised Dentists we use special equipment.
Special mouth dispensers help in better and safely opening of the person’s mouth.
Which are the dental particularities of the people with special needs and what problems do they create?
LOVE AND CARE
We have dedicated one of our clinics named “APPLE TREES” to children with special needs.
People with Cerebral Palsy (CP) have an increased salivation and problems with swallowing, thus resulting in increased Dental calculus.
Children with mental retardation, experience more Orthodontic abnormalities, missing teeth, delayed tooth eruption, and hypoplastic teeth.
The main oral problem of children with Down syndrome is the increased risk of developing Gingivitis and Periodontal diseases.
Autism/ Dispersed growth disorders
Autism is perhaps the most difficult medical condition with regard to the child’s cooperation in the clinic. The key to success in children with Autism is the early visit to the Dentist for prevention purposes.
Early symptoms in acute Leukaemia may occur in the mouth (automatic bleeding of the gums, severe redness, early and generalized tooth movement, etc.).
Congenital heart disease
Children with Congenital Heart Disease are at an increased risk of Microbial Endocarditis.
Visual and hearing problems
In cases of patients with limited or no vision or hearing, the Dentist after being informed by the parents about the degree of the problem will try to communicate and win the patient using his other senses in order for the child to have a good Dental experience.
Hyperactivity / Attention Deficit Disorder
Due to the lack of attention, there are high chances of bad oral hygiene and other oral diseases (Dental caries, Gingivitis, etc.)
