Some children may need special care and attention when visiting the dentist. Patients with special health care needs are those who have physical, medical, developmental, or cognitive conditions that require special consideration when receiving dental treatment. Dr. Cooke and Dr. Mvula are specially trained to treat children with special health concerns, and our team works together with parents, caregivers, and other health care providers to meet the needs and work within the limitations of our special needs patients. We will customize a plan of action to make each visit as smooth and comfortable as possible as we provide safe and quality care.
For two weeks after, brushing must be done carefully. Please understand that occasional bleeding is normal.
For any other concerns or questions, please contact our office.
Any unexpected health issues can be scary, especially when they involve your child. When it happens, you may stress over deciding if you should call us right away or not. If the problem is clearly an emergency, call us ASAP or go to your local urgent care or emergency center if we are unable to answer you immediately. If you aren’t sure, consult the guide below.
What do I do if:
Once you call us, ask your child to point to the exact area that is hurting. Check it for foreign objects that could be causing pain. Loose baby teeth or erupting teeth can also cause pain. Also see if you can spot a small hole underneath the tooth, as this could be a sign of a cavity.
If you notice swelling in your child’s face, use a cold compress and call us as soon as possible. Any swelling related to dental anatomy is very concerning. This could indicate an abcessed tooth or other infection, both of which need to be treated as soon as possible to avoid complications.
To comfort your child, here are some simple remedies to use until you are able to visit us:
Give us a call or visit our Post-Op care section if your child is experiencing dental pain that you believe is related to recent dental treatment.
