Every child's requirements are different, whether visiting the dentist for routine procedures like an annual checkup and professional dental cleaning, or for more invasive treatment like having a cavity filled or orthodontic treatment with braces. Dr. Gomes-Ruane offers sedation and emergency dentistry, as well as language services in English, Spanish and Portuguese. In addition to basic dental pediatric dental services, special needs children often require treatment for oral abnormalities and conditions such as:

  • Congenital oral cavity defects
  • Severe malocclusions
  • Cleft lip/palette

Some children have underlying health conditions which can complicate dental treatment, even for routine procedures. It is important for parents to consult with a dentist before treatment if your child is suffering from conditions such as:

  • Hemophilia or other bleeding disorders
  • Heart conditions
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Seizure or neurological disorders

Other children may require special attention and consideration for behavioral or psychological conditions. The dental team at Dentistry for Children at Weston offers individualized treatment options to address the specific needs of each child on a case by case basis to ensure that they obtain the care, support and attention they need for a successful dental visit for both the child and the parents. Services like sedation dentistry can help to put anxious and fearful children at ease and take out much of any stress and fear around going to the dentist.
