types of oral surgeries

Root Canals

If a tooth is severely injured or decayed, your child may need a root canal treatment. Root canals are especially common for deep cavities that impact the nerves. During the procedure, the affected nerve area will be removed and covered with a medicated material, then a crown/cap is placed on the tooth for long-lasting reconstruction.


Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. We avoid removing teeth at all costs, but in certain situations it can be mandatory for your child’s overall wellbeing. After an extraction, we’d be happy to assist you with gaining back your child’s healthy, functional, and beautiful smile.

Reasons for dental extractions:

Severe infection
Serious decay and/or damage
Severe crowding


Malocclusion is another word for overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite caused by crooked or crowded teeth. The upper teeth do not properly meet and align with the bottom teeth when the jaw is shut. This can be caused by injury, genes, environment, or all three. In severe cases, the comfort and appearance of the lower face can be affected.

Most malocclusions can be treated through orthodontics, but severe cases may require surgical reshaping. During this procedure the jaw is lengthened or shortened with stabilizing screws, plates, or wires. Aligners or braces may be prescribed to stabilize your child’s teeth after surgery.

Left untreated, malocclusion can lead to a variety of issues:

A missing tooth or more
Tooth decay
Cracked, chipped, or worn teeth
Speech problems
Sleep problems
Sores on inside of cheeks
TMJ pain and/or headaches
Abnormal appearance of the face
