What is Hospital Dentistry?
Could hospital dentistry make visiting the dentist a little easier for you or a loved one?
When you come into Sikka Dental in San Jose, CA, patients of all ages can expect to get comprehensive and compassionate dental care, no matter if they are getting a simple cleaning or a root canal. Of course, our dentist, Dr. Nidhi Sikka, also understands that some patients may need a different approach to dentistry. Which is why we also offer hospital dentistry to patients living in San Jose, CA, and the surrounding areas.
When people think of dentists they often think of small practices where dentistry is at the forefront, but hospital dentistry allows patients with certain health problems or concerns to be able to get the dental care they need when an in-office dental setting just isn’t enough.
Who can benefit from hospital dentistry?
There are many reasons someone may choose to see our dentist at one of the local San Jose, CA, hospitals. Patients dealing with chronic illnesses such as muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy, along with patients dealing with mental or neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD, Autism, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder can get the care they need with more treatment and sedation options to cater to their special needs. This is also a great option for patients undergoing chemotherapy, as well as medically compromised patients who still need routine dental care.
Furthermore, we know that accidents happen. If you have knocked out a tooth or are dealing with severe bleeding from a soft-tissue injury, you probably already know that you need emergency attention. Luckily, you can still turn to the same dentist you know and trust just in a hospital setting where we can provide the proper treatment and care to stitch up that wound or re-implant the knocked-out tooth.
