Pediatric Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
At Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates we treat patients of all ages. For children we offer general and local anesthesia for a wide range of procedures, including simple extractions and laser treatment of oral lesions. Several of our surgeons have young children and sympathize with the anxiety both children and parents experience. Our office provides a safe non- threatening environment for the pediatric patient. We encourage parents/guardians to stay in the room with their children until they are asleep and quickly reunite them after the procedure.
Special care for pediatric patients has long been a hallmark of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates. For the needle phobic child, we offer IV free anesthesia. More complicated procedures can be completed at Maine Medical Center as day surgery or with an overnight stay in the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.
