Oral Surgery for Children, Teens, and Young Adults in Austin, TX
The word “surgery” can be a little scary for everyone – but don’t worry. In most cases, oral surgery is a far less intensive procedure, usually performed in an office setting under local anesthesia and with very minimal recovery time. Some oral surgeries may be more extensive procedures like jaw realignment or emergency treatment for facial trauma, but most are routine procedures like tooth extraction.
Tooth Extractions in Austin
By far, the most common oral surgery we perform at our Austin pediatric dental offices is tooth extraction. Tooth extraction may be necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth, to promote the development of a healthy smile, or simply because a baby tooth gets a cavity and a filling is impractical. In any case, tooth extraction is a simple, routine procedure that takes only an afternoon. We perform the procedure using local anesthesia, and most patients experience little to no discomfort during and after the procedure.
