According to the WHO, about 10% of the world’s population is made up of patients with special needs, 50% of whom are mentally handicapped, 20% are physically disabled, 15% are hearing impaired, 5% are visually impaired, and finally, 10% multiple alterations.
Dentistry for patients with special needs is comprehensive because it comprises in several groups of diseases and conditions that make a special patient need for differentiated care. Often these patients have mental, physical, organic, social, or behavioral changes.
The multidisciplinary, as well as the interdisciplinary action, is of vital importance in the care of patients with special needs. Based on this principle, IMPLAR® Dental Hospital brought together qualified professionals and, combined with its differentiated structure, offers special patients, results and safety in all areas of dentistry.
