  • Abstract

    Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD) refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences. People with autism may also have unusual sensory interests such as sniffing objects or staring intently at moving objects, sensory sensitivities including avoiding everyday sounds and textures, intellectual impairment, or learning difficulties. Patients who have an ASD diagnosis may, however, be at higher risk than typical patients for some dental problems such as, bruxism, nutritive chewing, tongue thrusting, self-injury, erosion, xerostomia, and hyper gag reflex. Managing of such patients in the dental office poses a great challenge for dentists. The aim of this article is to review the management of autistic children in the dental clinic.
