Association for Pediatric Oral Surgery (APOS)

The Association for Pediatric Oral Surgery (APOS) was established as a meeting place for sharing experience and solutions in the field of children oral surgery orthodontics.

In the last few years pediatric patients have grown to be the center of an increasing attention: pedodontics has taken important steps forward, and the cooperation between surgeons and orthodontists has significantly increased.

Oral surgery in young patients is not minor surgery, as it presents a number of complexities concerning psychological aspects, the need for a multidisciplinary approach, growth expectations and age-specific disorders.

General anesthesia is more often becoming the less practical choice, thanks to a more attentive psychological approach, an improved development in local anaesthesia and sedation methods, and especially thanks to the result of new surgical approaches and techniques, which require constant adjustment to the specific pathological needs of each young patient.
