Tooth extractions are typically performed when a tooth is too damaged, too decayed to be saved with a filling or other treatment, or blocking a new tooth. Our pediatric dentist will only recommend an extraction as a last resort and will always exhaust all other options before proceeding with the extraction.
At Children's Dentistry of Elko, our experienced pediatric dentist and dental professionals provide the highest standard of care for children, including tooth extractions. We understand that a tooth extraction can be a difficult experience for children, which is why we strive to make the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
During the extraction procedure, our pediatric dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth. This will minimize any pain or discomfort your child may experience during the procedure. Our team will also provide detailed instructions on how to care for the extraction site and manage any pain or discomfort your child may experience after the procedure.
After the tooth is extracted, our team will discuss the options available for replacing the missing tooth, such as dental implants, bridges, or space maintainers. Our goal is to help your child achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile, and we will work with you to find the best solution for your child's individual needs.
We understand that children may have different needs, and we will work closely with you and your child to ensure that the extraction process is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. If you have any questions or concerns about tooth extractions for your child, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're here to help your child achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile!
