Pediatric Oral Surgery
When a restorative treatment does not work to save a baby tooth maybe from a trauma or decay infection, extraction is the best alternative method. This is also applied when there is crowding or over retention, or a permanent tooth needs to be extracted. To keep our patients at ease while we perform this dental process, we apply anesthesia in a level that is appropriate for their needs.
We perform two types of frenectomies namely, labial and lingual for tongue tie or lip tie problems. This is a short frenulum problem preventing your child to move tongue and lip properly. These can badly affect the speech, eating, and growth and development of the teeth and jaws. Moreover, tongue tie can cause difficulties with infant’s breast and bottle feeding. Laser dentistry is the best treatment for kids with tongue tie and lip tie because it is a painless method.
We only perform biopsies to diagnose a possible lesion or not a normal growth spot in the oral cavity. However, there are simple brush biopsies which only cause you a very little discomfort.
