People dealing with physical or mental disabilities and illnesses can look into special care dentistry. A special care dentist is a dental professional with the skills and experience to efficiently handle the dental needs of patients with special needs. Itani Dental’s staff of special care dentists works to satisfy the needs of San Francisco residents with disabilities. Our patient-friendly mentality makes us a perfect choice for special care dentistry in the Bay Area.
Who We Can Help
We serve patients with several forms of medical and physical disabilities at our dental office. For example, we have a lot of elderly patients dealing with hearing impairment and light sensitivity. As you get older, it may be harder for you to detect oral health issues. This difficulty is brought upon by a loss of pain sensors in the mouth. Our approach is careful, and our staff is highly skilled at catering our dental process to your needs.
Some of our patients have mobility issues that make it difficult for them to travel to our office. That’s why we offer to treat patients from the comfort of their homes. Our team travels up to a 60-mile radius from our special care dentistry in San Francisco, CA, to help those with special needs.
Additionally, we provide dental services to those with mental disabilities. People with mental disabilities often need assistance from caregivers to interpret our instructions and oral health care advice. Our team works well with patients with learning disabilities and can ease their stress and provide the care they deserve.
Aside from patients that are aging or have mental disabilities, we also care for people who have a mental illness, behavioral issues, complex medical conditions, or other concerns. Whatever you’re going through, we can make your trip to the dentist as seamless as possible. These patients usually have a condition that makes it impossible for them to be still during treatment, thus compromising their safety, or they are extremely fearful and can’t undergo treatment while awake.
Conditions that can give rise to this situation include:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Down Syndrome
- Age induced infirmities
- Extreme Phobia
When necessary, Itani Dental offers IV sedation or general anesthesia options to be used in hospital or dental office settings.
Our staff is expertly trained and works with a team of highly qualified specialists, including anesthesiologists, who can meet your every need.
