Back to School OMS Care

It’s time for the kids to go back to classes, and that means school schedules and activities. It also means it may be time to think about back to school OMS care. Here are some of the reasons that this is an important season in your child’s oral health.


As students return to playing sports the risk of oral or facial injuries increases. When there is trauma it’s vital to correct the damage as soon as possible. This helps prevent further injury and breakdown of the structures. Proper repairs also help the teeth and soft tissue to regenerate.

You may also discover that your child needs their wisdom teeth removed. While oral surgery during the school year doesn’t seem ideal, this isn’t a procedure that should be put off any longer than necessary, because impacted wisdom teeth become more difficult to remove over time and can even lead to nerve damage and breakdown of bone tissue in the jaw. With a new school calendar in hand, this is the perfect time to schedule removal over a long weekend or break, so your child has time to recover.

You aren’t the only ones who just returned from a family vacation, either. We have a high availability of surgeons at this time of the year, making it easier to find convenient appointment times.


While wisdom tooth extraction is what people are most familiar with, it isn’t the only reason your student might need oral surgery during the school year. There are many other procedures that children sometimes need. Sometimes a baby tooth doesn’t come out on its own, and then it needs to be removed. Even young children can get dental infections that must be addressed surgically. Sports injuries to the teeth, jaw, and face can all be repaired by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

All of these services and more are performed by skilled medical professionals at our office.
