Since no one is immune to problems located in the orofacial region, Clinique MFML offers you pediatric maxillofacial care and surgeries suitable for infants.
At Clinique MFML, we understand that your child’s smile is something to be treasured. That’s why we offer pediatric maxillofacial surgery services that meet the needs of younger children.
It is possible that some oral, facial and dental pathologies will alter your child’s facial development. These situations can leave permanent consequences: malocclusion, facial asymmetry, problems in the jaw muscles and bones, chewing difficulties, etc. When a problem is detected, it is therefore important to consult a specialist as soon as possible. The maxillofacial surgeon specializing in pediatric treatment will be able to assess your child’s condition and determine the best course of action. At Clinique MFML, Dr. Anne-Frédérique Chouinard with her specific training is taking care of these cases.
Since a child’s physical development takes place rapidly, it is important to determine the appropriate time for treatment. This is why it is important to make an appointment as quickly as possible when a problem is noticed or suspected. Our specialist will be able to analyze and plan the proper force of actions for your child.
Whether it is supernumerary teeth, facial malformations, facial trauma, joint problems or even tumors, our surgeon specializing in pediatric maxillofacial surgery will be able to meet your child’s needs.
At Clinique MFML, we fully understand that children can be terrified of visiting a health specialist. That’s why we put in place practices that promote an environment of trust and comfortability. All our team members work to develop procedures that minimize discomforts, both psychological and physical, that can precede or follow our treatments. The gentle manner of our auxiliary staff and our specialist surgeon allows everyone to feel at ease in our clinic.
For example, we offer different sedation techniques such as oral sedation for infants when the necessary surgical procedure can be performed in the clinic. Sedation reduces fears about treatment. Small details like this help create a warm and comfortable atmosphere.
