Reasons for Tooth Extraction in Children

Tooth removal is never the first dental option, but it is necesary in some cases. When a tooth is beyond repair and only causes pain, extraction is the best course of action. For kids, tooth removal may be a helpful first step for orthodontic treatment or other dental work. Regardless of if its a permanent tooth or baby tooth, we only advise tooth removal when it’s the best choice.

At our office, we ensure you’ll be comfortable by providing anesthesia prior to treatment if desired. The entire process is usually painless. We leverage industry-leading tools and methods to ensure a comfortable treatment.
