Northridge, CA (PRWEB) February 02, 2015
Northridge Dental Group now offers treatment options specifically for special needs patients. Northridge dentist, Dr. Arami, specializes in treating patients with special needs and can ensure they get the care they need to enjoy good dental health. About 20 percent of the population has developmental, physical, or intellectual disabilities that can affect their everyday lives. These disabilities may also interfere with a person’s ability to get dental care. These patients have special needs that must be addressed, which can include dental hygiene counseling, treatments, and anxiety relief.
Patients who may benefit from a little extra TLC include those with:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Genetic disorders
- Downs syndrome
- Alzheimer’s disease or dementia
- Damage from stroke
- Behavioral disorders
- Psychiatric disorders
- Extreme dental anxiety or phobia
- Cerebral palsy
- Immune disorders or diseases
- Pulmonary problems
- Heart disease
Treatment options are extensive, and Northridge dentist, Dr. Arami, offers gentle, compassionate care, including routine exams, cleanings, dental fillings, porcelain crowns, oral surgery, and cosmetic dentistry. According to the team at Northridge Dental Group, “The mission of our family oriented practice is to give our patients a warm, safe experience with a personal touch.” Although the entire staff is happy to go the extra mile for each patient, some patients do need a little extra help. Sedation dentistry can help them feel more relaxed and better able to complete necessary treatments.
