Pediatric Oral Surgery

What is Pediatric Oral Surgery?

Children and young adults can develop cavities, gum disease, infections or other conditions involving the jaws that cause pain and swelling. This may require teeth removal or treatment of infections and jaw problems. We are able to treat all problems affecting the teeth, gums, mouth, and jaws. Children and young adults may be worried or nervous about having to see and be treated by a pediatric oral surgeon. We are able to use medicines to put your child to sleep while we treat them to ensure the experience is a good one for you and your child.
