CHILDREN’S TEETH EXTRACTIONS
Sometimes teeth can be decayed or damaged to the point where they need to be extracted, and especially with children, severely misaligned teeth can cause complications to their bite patterns or even pain and discomfort later on. In any of these cases, our goal is to perform quick, pain-free extractions in a comfortable and safe setting, and get your child on the road to recovery and restoration with all the aftercare information you and they need.Schedule an Appointment
During a simple extraction, your child’s dentist will administer some local anesthetic to numb the affected tooth, and will then simply remove the tooth with a specialized tool and some gentle, consistent pressure. Most extractions only take a few minutes and then you will be instructed on how to keep the extraction site clean and free of infection while the site heals over the coming weeks.
