Dr. Puckett and his staff are experts in treating the pediatric population, treating patients as young as two days old. At the initial consultation visit, Dr. Puckett will not only evaluate and discuss the plan, but will allow for time and opportunity to have questions and concerns answered. Most procedures in children are best performed with sedation, to reduce anxiety and minimize the potential for an unpleasant experience which can have long-lasting effects for the patient.
Pediatric oral surgery patients are frequently seen for a number of procedures, including:
- Removal of primary (baby) teeth
- Removal of adult teeth (usually for braces)
- Exposure of teeth
