What Are the Most Common Pediatric Dental Surgery Procedures?
Dental Extractions: While we never spare an effort to save a natural tooth, there are times teeth are damaged beyond repair, severely decayed, infected, fractured, or impacted, leaving extraction as the only viable option. In some cases, a crowded mouth will require selective extractions as a component of orthodontic treatment to allow the remaining teeth to shift into alignment.
Frenectomies: A frenectomy is a simple surgical procedure we perform to release the tissue called the frenulum from the upper lip or under the tongue to improve the range of motion. Our minimally-invasive laser frenectomies require no anesthesia or stitches, are virtually painless, and involve minimal recovery time.
Root Canal: Baby teeth, just like adult teeth, can suffer tooth pulp damage. We offer root canals for children of all ages, making sure the process is comfortable and free of stress.
Dental Emergencies: Facial trauma, including injury to the jaw or face, sometimes requires dental surgery to restore your child's healthy smile.
How Can You Avoid the Need for Dental Surgery?
The best way to avoid the need for dental surgery is to maintain healthy smiles. That involves ensuring your child brushes and flosses daily to keep cavities at bay. Encourage your child to make healthy food choices and to limit sugary or acidic foods and beverages. If your child is involved in sports activities, we invite you to talk to our team about a custom protective mouthguard. Don't forget to visit Top Tooth Pediatric + Teen Dentistry for your child's routine dental exams and cleanings to ensure your child's oral health stays in tip-top shape.
