Association for Pediatric Oral Surgery (APOS)

The Association for Pediatric Oral Surgery (APOS) was established as a meeting place for those who want to share their experience and solutions in the field of children's oral surgery and in that of orthodontic patients.

Growing patients have received growing attention in recent years: Pedodontics has made giant steps and cooperation between surgeons and orthodontists has been enhanced.

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 developmental disorders.

General anaesthesia is used less for oral surgery due to a more careful psychological approach, to the evolution of local anaesthesia and sedation techniques, but even more so to the new surgical techniques, which must be customised according to the specific pathologies of young patients.
