Common Pediatric Dental Conditions Requiring Surgical Intervention
Some of the most common pediatric dental problems that we see that require surgery include the following:
Oral surgery may be necessary for a number of different reasons. Problems with teeth are common. From congenital issues to injury issues, to hygiene issues, we can assist your child in dental repair and restoration. Oral and maxillofacial abnormalities, including a cleft palate or lip, necessitate immediate surgical correction. Injuries including a broken jaw or a severe impact to the temporomandibular (jaw) joint could result in long-term complications if surgical intervention is not completed timely and appropriately. Issues that are ignored can result in worsening problems with the child's bite, their ability to chew or swallow, or even with speech.
It is vital to your child's oral health and their function that their teeth come together properly, that the jaw is properly aligned, can open and close with ease and without pain or clicking, and that there is no exaggerated overbite or underbite.
Corrective jaw surgery can help correct the issues to achieve normal function as your child grows physically and developmentally.
