FAQ:  Special Needs Dentistry

  • I have a brother with Down Syndrome. He is 34 years old and hates the dentist. He has had bad experiences in the past with a dentist. He has become violent in the past. He does not like needles or sharp objects. Could Sedation be a solution for him? ...Karen     (answer)

  • I have Scleroderma. In Scleroderma there are calcium deposits on bone that stretch ligaments and loosen teeth. I need to know what kind of dentist to see for this problem. My regular dentist knows nothing of scleroderma. ...Visitor from PA     (answer)

  • I have a Pacemaker, Defibrillator, and a Traumatic Brain Injury. I have 8 bad teeth. 2 are getting pulled soon. I can not find a Dentist who will fix my teeth. Any suggestions on where to look? I really do not trust Rockford at all. I have had too many problems. I am from Wisconsin. Does my health make people worried or something? I also do not have insurance and I know that turns most people off. Any suggestions or anything will be greatly apprieciated. ...Visitor from IL     (answer)

  • My brother suffers with cerbral palsy and the use of a papoose is needed for dental work as a result of his condition. Can you tell me what that is and where can I see a picture of it? ...Visitor from NY     (answer)

  • I have a sister (43) who has eplilepsy. Her seizures are basically controlled right now, but she does sometimes have Grand Mal or Clonic Tonic seizures. She smokes and doesn't have good dental hygiene. She is also on disability due to this, so no dental insurance. She is having to have several teeth pulled. My question is, will she be able to use false teeth? Implants are out of the question, financially if nothing else. ...Visitor from TN     (answer)
