Many people have special needs with regard to dental prophylaxis, diagnostics, and treatment – either due to cognitive or communicative limitations; functional restrictions; or factors related to medicines or drugs, genetics, incidents or accidents, among others. Many dentists who have limited or no experience with special needs patients often fail to meet their needs, usually unintentionally due to uncertainty or even helplessness. This can result in a lack of understanding and irritation on the part of both the patient and the dentist and can therefore lead to a significant reduction in oral health. Unfortunately, special needs patients often only play a marginal role, if any, in dental studies and professional events. The editors of this book, in cooperation with numerous authors, identified 56 special needs and concisely presented their specific dental treatment requirements. Therefore, this is the first book of its kind to address the needs of a significant number of these patients, and aims to help in meeting these special needs in dental care.
