Tooth Extractions for Kids
There are many situations in which the primary teeth will need to be extracted before they fall out by themselves. The potential for overcrowding when the permanent teeth erupt is a major concern. In other cases, some of the primary teeth will fuse to the jawbone, preventing them from falling out on their own, and these teeth will also need to be extracted to make room for the permanent teeth to erupt.
This can be a scary experience for a child, and as their parent, it may be even worse for you. We feel strongly about treating your child's surgical needs while also keeping the emotional needs in mind, so we will help them to feel secure and safe while explaining treatment using words that are understandable. We encourage them to ask questions, we provide reassurance throughout the procedure, and our main goal is to treat your child in a comfortable manner with a high standard of safety.
