How do you approach dental care for children with autism?
Dental care is important for children with autism, but it can be challenging for both the child and the parent. As a caregiver, it’s important to be patient and understanding of your child’s sensory needs and behavioral tendencies during dental appointments. You can prepare your child by using social stories, visual aids, and practicing dental care routines at home. You can also work with a dentist who has experience working with children with special needs and who can provide accommodations such as a quiet room, sedation, or desensitization techniques. Remember, with the right preparation and support, dental visits can be a positive experience for your child and help maintain their overall health and well-being.
