No patient wants to face the possibility of extraction, but sometimes it is necessary to prevent the development of further problems. Particularly children are likely to be afraid of the concept of tooth removal, which is why when it comes to extractions it is imperative that you choose the very best in care. We aim to make Kids First Dental your absolute best choice for all procedures, especially those most sensitive to children.
Teeth may be extracted in both children and adults for a variety of reasons. The most common reason is tooth decay, which may occur in children as well as adults. Yes, even a child’s primary teeth, or “baby teeth,” may develop tooth decay. When this happens, it is important to take fast action to prevent further problems. This may sometimes involve an extraction.
Sometimes, the injury may also lead to extraction. We will make the determination to do an extraction based on what is best for your child’s future. We factor in not only the immediate repercussions of an extraction, but also the long-term orthodontic impact. This is important, because as adult teeth replace the primary teeth, the “blueprint” has been set by the health of the primary teeth.
If we must perform an extraction, the next step is filling the space left behind by the removed tooth. This involves what we call space maintenance. It is important to maintain the proper positioning of surrounding teeth, which are prone to shifting in to fill the leftover gap. This leads to many orthodontic problems. Space maintenance uses a variety of devices to keep a child’s smile not only looking beautiful, but healthy and functional.
Our doctors and staff are specially selected because of their intuitive ability to provide the best care to children. When facing the possibility of an extraction, which will likely include anesthesia, we understand the entire process is scary.
