SF Oral Surgery has been supporting San Francisco patients for generations with high-quality care and advanced surgical procedures. If your child needs oral surgery, you can rely on our practice for pediatric dentistry.
Kind and Comfortable Pediatric Dentistry
The oral surgery practice you choose for your child needs to offer more than just excellent technique. Its staff and doctors should be reassuring, kind, and patient. At SF Oral Surgery we help your child maintain the best oral health care with gentle surgical and anesthetic techniques that minimize the stress and discomfort normally associated with oral surgery.
We believe that by explaining procedures to your child at a level they can understand, your child will not be scared of their procedure. During a consultation we will describe what happens to them using simple language and take the time to make your child feel at ease before their procedure. Our oral surgeons and technicians will provide your child with the best possible care and attention while we correct any painful or problematic dental conditions.
Procedures We Offer for San Francisco Pediatric Dentistry
Oral surgeons have unique qualifications to provide your child with pediatric dentistry that a general dentist is unable to perform. San Francisco parents bring their children to SF Oral Surgery with a variety of conditions that need expert treatment, such as:
Removal of baby teeth and permanent teeth that have become impacted. Your dentist or orthodontist may recommend extracting baby teeth or permanent teeth if they become an obstacle to the healthy growth of adjacent teeth. Your child may also require his or her impacted teeth to be removed if there is inadequate space for them to grow in. SF Oral Surgery will work with your child’s dentist or orthodontist to ensure that their teeth are normal and healthy.
Trauma. It’s hard to get out of childhood without a few bumps and bruises. Some children even require tooth replacement or emergency treatment after a sports injury, car accident, or another unfortunate event. SF Oral Surgery will replace teeth that your child has lost and any damage to their mouth and other surrounding tissue and bones. SF Oral is equipped to perform oral surgery at a moment’s notice in an emergency for San Francisco patients who need immediate treatment.
Biopsy. Your child’s dentist may recommend a biopsy of an area of the mouth if he or she sees something in a routine examination that requires further exploration. SF Oral Surgery’s dental team is equipped to provide gentle and caring treatment before, during, and after your child’s biopsy.
Frenectomy. Your dentist may recommend a “frenectomy” to remove some of the tissue that connects the lips and gums or gums and tongue. This small bit of tissue can inhibit your child’s ability to speak clearly and eat comfortably, eliminating embarrassing speech impediments and discomfort.
