Extractions

Our doctors may extract a tooth for a variety of reasons. Some baby teeth need to be extracted due to infection or spacing concerns. Our doctors will consult with you, the parents, to ensure your child’s comfort, health concerns, and dental fears. Deciding the best treatment options for your child’s dental care is important for a long term healthy smile. Some individuals may need extraction of permanent teeth.

In cases where infection or restorability of the tooth is in question the option of extracting a tooth may be necessary to ensure the patients overall health. In special cases an orthodontist may request the removal of permanent teeth to create better alignment of the permanent dentition. Our doctors can perform these procedures at the request of your orthodontic specialist.
