Easing Your Child’s Fear of Oral Surgery

The thought of undergoing oral surgery usually elicits feelings of anxiety and fear for patients. If it is your child that needs surgery, the emotions are intensified even more. We know firsthand the many worries, concerns, and questions that parents face in this situation and we are here to walk you through every step of the process.

Consultation
Every procedure entails an initial exam consultation. Here, we provide a thorough explanation of a patient’s diagnosis and our surgery plan. This part of the process can be difficult for your child to understand, so as a parent, it is helpful for you to do some research and explain the procedure to your child in a non-threatening and easy to understand way. Doing so is essential, because it is critical that your child knows what to expect before heading into their procedure.

Procedures
Our patients and their parents can take comfort knowing that our practice specializes in treating pediatric patients in need of oral surgery or sedation dentistry.
