For children, a trip to the oral surgeon’s office doesn’t have to be stressful. At Innovative Implant and Oral Surgery, our team of friendly specialists understands the unique needs of younger patients, and we strive to maintain a positive, soothing ambiance for families.
Newtown in Bucks County, PA, is a great place to raise a family, with easy access to excellent wellness services. Our oral surgery team is proud to deliver compassionate, patient-centered care– that our local community has come to trust.
Our advanced surgical suites
At Innovative Implant and Oral Surgery, our surgical suites are fully equipped to accommodate the needs of our young patients. We routinely work with children who are anxious about surgery in general– and needles in particular. Our compassionate staff can ease your child’s worries and support their comfort.
For some pediatric patients, sedation dentistry may be an appropriate choice. When administering sedatives, our staff prioritizes the safety and health of your child. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is often effective, especially when combined with local anesthetics. More anxious children may benefit from conscious IV sedation or general anesthesia. Our surgical suites are fully equipped to handle all levels of sedation safely and effectively.
Our pediatric oral surgery services
Children can be susceptible to both congenital and acquired oral and maxillofacial issues. Our goal is to restore children’s oral health, functional abilities, and appearance to enable them to lead happy, healthy lives. Some of the pediatric oral health issues we can treat include the following:
- Improperly erupted/impacted teeth (including wisdom teeth)
- Oral infections
- Dental cysts
- Oral, head, and neck tumors
- Salivary gland disorders
- Dentoalveolar injuries (including fracture and displacement injuries)
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders
- Asymmetry of the jaw
Another health issue we treat is pediatric sleep apnea—a serious sleep disorder that, if left untreated, increases the risk of other health complications. Sometimes, this disorder can be caused by problems with the structure of the face or jaw. Surgical intervention can help children with severe sleep apnea caused by structural deficits.
Ankyloglossia, or tongue-tie, is another medical problem our oral surgeons can treat. This congenital condition is characterized by the tethering of the bottom of the tip of the tongue to the floor of the mouth. This can interfere with nursing, as well as the ability of an older child to speak, eat, and swallow.
Our oral surgeons use innovative, evidence-based techniques to enable children to enjoy better health and functional abilities.
