 Abstract
Special Health Care Needs (SHCN) patients need regular follow-up because of high incidence and severity of oral disease. The aim of this study was to evaluate the dental treatment outcomes of SHCN patients according to follow-up patterns. SHCN patients who were treated under general anesthesia (GA) at Kyung Hee University Dental Hospital from 2006 to 2014 were included in this study. The final samples comprised of 53 patients that were divided into regular (33 patients) and irregular (20 patients) follow-up groups according to their follow-up patterns. The type of dental treatment after GA during the follow-up periods were compared. In the irregular group, aggressive treatment including endodontic, prosthetic treatment, and extraction were predominant, compared with the regular group (p < 0.05). In addition, all patients who had dental treatment under GA in follow-up periods were in the irregular group (p < 0.05). In conclusion, the results of this study provide the importance of regular follow-ups with SHCN patients and emphasize responsibilities of dentists for educating patients and their guardians.
