What is Special Needs Dentistry?
Special needs dentistry refers to the branch of dentistry that provides oral healthcare services to individuals who require additional care due to physical, developmental, or cognitive conditions. These individuals may include those with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other conditions that make it challenging to receive traditional dental care. Special needs dentistry involves providing tailored care to meet the unique needs of each patient and ensuring they feel comfortable and safe throughout the dental visit.
At our dental practice, we understand that every patient has unique needs and concerns, and that’s especially true for patients with special needs. We believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality dental care, regardless of their individual challenges or circumstances. That’s why we’re committed to offering special needs dentistry services to the Edmond community. We want to reassure our patients that we are here to help and make any accommodations that may be needed to ensure they receive the care they need and deserve.

Severe Gag Reflex
A severe gag reflex can make dental treatment a very difficult and uncomfortable experience for some patients. It can be triggered by various factors, such as the taste or smell of dental materials or even the mere presence of dental instruments in the mouth. Our Eagle Dental team understands that this can be a major obstacle to receiving necessary dental care, which is why we offer special accommodations for patients with a severe gag reflex. Our experienced and compassionate team will work with you to find ways to make your dental visit as comfortable as possible. We can discuss various options, such as sedation dentistry or the use of alternative instruments or materials, to help manage your gag reflex and ensure that you receive the dental care you need without unnecessary discomfort or anxiety.
