Dental care is something that is needed by each one of us. But amongst us, there are few who cannot just simply walk up to a dentist and opt to go for dentistry treatment. They need special facilities and services to be able to go for dental treatment. This is exactly what led to the development of special care dentistry treatment. Regulated by the Special Care Dentistry Association, this particular form of treatment is solely devoted for people with special needs, who due to any kind of disability, be it physical or mental, social or emotional, need special consideration when receiving dental treatment. While a person who is physically challenged may find it difficult to undergo a dental surgery or even sit on the dental chair, someone else with a learning disability may feel apprehensive to walk up to a dentist. Again, a person with some kind of oral health disability may need some extra precaution or care. Dentists with high level of experience and expertise in providing special care dentistry treatment take account of all these things when providing dental treatment to these people. Before starting the treatment procedures, a dentist studies the entire case history of his patient - starting from his age, health and family background to the patient's medical condition, the medicines he take, whether he's on inhalers or insulin, the family physician, the hospital consultant, whether the patient has had any recent surgeries and what all he's allergic to. Knowing each and every minute detail about the patient will help the dentist in offering the better care and special services to his patient. Whether a person needs wheelchair facility or an intravenous sedation, a ground floor surgery or a specially adapted one, are the things that a dentist can decide only after knowing the complete details about the patient. As far as the cost and duration of special care dentistry treatment is concerned, the same depends upon the patient and the nature of treatment given.
