Pediatric Oral Surgery in Greensboro
At Lake Jeanette we specialize in Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry. We are NOT an oral surgeon, However we do perform complex pediatric dentistry procedures in the operating room, and we offer pediatric sedation dentistry. Our fun child-friendly office offers pediatric dentistry all the way through orthodontic treatment. Having everything done under one roof can help alleviate stress and make your child feel more comfortable at the dentist. Read on to find out if our practice could be a good fit for you.
Baby Tooth Extraction
Baby tooth extraction can be necessary if a baby tooth is decayed, damaged or broken. Sometimes we recommend baby tooth removal just in order to maintain proper alignment if a certain tooth is not falling out naturally on schedule, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. Baby tooth removal usually requires only a light oral sedation and can be done in-office. Healing time is minimal and your child should be back to their normal activities in 48 hours.
Emergency Pediatric Dentistry in Greensboro
If your child is experiencing a toothache or a dental injury, we can help. We are able to extract a broken or infected tooth, offer antibiotics, and prescribe medication to manage your child’s pain. If it is outside of business hours please leave us a message. We are available for pediatric emergencies for both new and existing patients and would love to help get your child’s smile back in top form as soon as possible.
Because we offer pediatric sedation, we are able to perform more lengthy procedures in the operating room. This could mean filling multiple cavities, a deep cavity that requires nerve treatment, applying dental crowns, or restoring a young patient’s smile after a dental injury.
If your child needs some dental work done that may require sedation, please give us a call. Once we hear more about your specific needs we can let you know if we would be a good fit and come up with a treatment plan.
