Pediatric Dentistry is an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence including those with special health care needs. Our pediatric dentists provide comprehensive restorative care including fillings, crowns, baby root canal therapy, extractions, space maintainers, and other procedures. These procedures are done efficiently while preserving quality care while the child is unaware and feeling no discomfort due to the influence of general anesthesia.
Special Needs Dentistry is a unique and often challenging component of dentistry that delivers oral health care to individuals who have special needs often involving disabling conditions affecting cognitive, emotional, physical, or medical functioning. Some of these individuals cannot receive oral health care because of their inability to cope and cooperate in office settings; therefore, they are treated while under general anesthesia. Our dentists who care for these individuals with special needs have received training beyond dental school in managing their dental needs.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialty of dentistry that includes the diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial regions. Our oral surgeons are highly trained individuals who provide a host of procedures aimed at treatment of complex dental and oro-maxillofacial conditions such as bony impacted teeth, cleft lip and palate repair, salivary gland issues, and bony or soft tissue biopsies that may not be possible without the adjunct of general anesthesia.
Endodontics is a branch of dentistry concerned with the morphology, physiology, and pathology of the human dental pulp and periradicular tissues. Endodontists specialize in the biology of normal pulp, etiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries to the pulp or associated periradicular areas. Complex but painless, efficient care can be accomplished by our endodontists while a child is under the influence of general anesthesia.
Otorhinolaryngology, commonly known as ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialty, is a surgical subspecialty within medicine that deals with conditions of the ear, nose, and throat and related structures of the head and neck. Children often suffer from diseases and infections that involve the ear and tonsillar areas of the head and oral cavity. Delicate, but needed surgical procedures can be done to efficiently and effectively correct these conditions by an ENT specialist while a child is under the influence of general anesthesia.
