Case Report (دارای رتبه معتبر)

Children with special health care needs receive less oral care than the normal population and they are at an increased risk for oral diseases throughout their lifetime. Autism Spectrum Disorder [ASD] refers to a group of neurodevelopmental disorders which include social and communicational impairments along with restricted or repetitive behavioral stereotypes. Dental management of an autistic child requires a comprehensive understanding of the disorder and various behavior guidance techniques. This study presents a single visit full mouth rehabilitation of a 10-year-old autistic child with history of pulmonary arteriovenous fistula and seizure under general anesthesia regarding uncooperative behavior and multiple medical and behavioral problems, which made the dental treatment extremely difficult. It appears that single visit dental treatment under general anesthesia is a good alternative for autistic pediatric patients.
