Special Needs Dentistry

Dentistry for Patients with Special Needs

As a dedicated family dental practice, Dr. Munilla and our team are proud to be one of few offices that are equipped to provide exceptional care for patients with special needs. Children and adults of all ages may have medical conditions, dental fears, developmental issues, and more that can make receiving dental care challenging. We help patients receive the care that their smiles need to remain healthy, and that they need to reduce their risks of systemic health issues. We offer a warm, welcoming environment with comfortable amenities, a patient and compassionate team, and a variety of dental sedation options to help patients remain calm and relaxed throughout their entire visit.

Dental Sedation Options

Every patient is unique, and we offer a choice of dental sedation options that can be tailored to every individual’s needs and preferences. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is a mild sedative that you inhale through your nose and exhale through mouth. The effects are instant and produce a slightly euphoric feeling, while you remain completely aware and responsive to everything around you. Oral sedation is more potent and can be taken in pill or liquid form before your procedure. The effects take a bit longer to manifest and the level of sedation is stronger, though you will still remain conscious and aware. For patients with more severe issues, we may recommend a combination of oral sedation and nitrous oxide.
