Oro-dental care of visually impaired child: A case report
Objective: The purpose of this paper is to describe the management of a visually impaired 12-year-old child by using ‘ATP technique’ and ‘Tell-Feel-Do technique’. Methods: A 12-year-old female child reported to the department of Pediatric and Preventive Dentistry, Army College of Dental Sciences, with the chief complaint of decay in lower left back tooth since 1 month. The patient was completely blind since birth. Learning Results: Most of the skills, technique, and activities carried out routinely are related to our vision. In people with visual impairement, there are limitations of moving around in different surroundings and performing basic activities due to which managing them becomes a challenging task for Pediatric dentists. Conclusion: With the introduction of ATP (Audio-Tactile Performance) it has become easier for both dentist and the child to get along with each other and also the dentist can easily convey all the procedures to be done in child.
