Special Needs Sedation Dentistry in Mountain View, CA


Special needs sedation dentistry is a specialty service we offer in-office to help accommodate our patients who have special needs. We proudly serve special needs clients and realize that doing so properly often requires a tailored approach. That’s why we offer sedation as an option for any appointment where it may be necessary. In the case of a special needs individual, sedation may be necessary even during a routine office visit.

One of the most common reasons for sedating a special needs patient is to keep them still and calm during their visit–whether it be for a filling, extraction, or even a simple cleaning. Even in cases where a special needs patient may be calm enough to go without sedation, we may recommend it if circumstances will require us to use extra devices that may warrant sedation for the patient’s comfort.

For instance, some special needs patients may have issues holding their mouths open wide enough for our team to do their jobs. In this case, we may use a dental prop or bite block. Keeping this in a patient’s mouth for a prolonged period, especially alongside other dentistry appliances, could make the visit less than pleasant. Therefore, we may suggest sedation as a means of keeping the patient content during their appointment.

You can also request sedation if you feel it will be necessary for you or the person you are caring for. If you do think that sedation will be necessary, just be sure to mention it to your dentist before the appointment. This allows us to prepare everything so that the appointment can get started without delay. If you have questions before the sedation, our team will happily answer those for you.

If you would like to take advantage of special needs sedation dentistry in Mountain View, contact our office today and schedule a consultation with our team.
