Tooth Extraction

A tooth extraction, or a tooth removal, may seem intimidating to a child. In reality, tooth extractions are safe, routine procedures that can help improve your child’s oral hygiene and prevent further damage.

Some of the reasons why your child may need to have teeth pulled include:

  • Crowding – A crowded mouth of teeth can harm your child’s jaw, bite and even self-esteem. We may recommend tooth removal to prepare your child’s mouth for a healthier smile.
  • Infection – When tooth decay reaches the inner tissues of your child’s teeth, treatment before infection spreads is crucial. Tooth extraction is one way to protect your child’s teeth from infection.
  • Gum Disease – Gum disease can loosen adult or baby teeth. Sometimes, tooth extraction can help prevent further damage to gums.

    Your child can remain conscious while their tooth is being pulled, all the while experiencing no pain. Dr. Alice P. Chen may recommend local anesthetic or laughing gas, to further promote a comfortable procedure. You can expect a pleasant tooth removal experience at Red Rock Kids Dental, dedicated to all aspects of your child’s well-being.

    Having teeth pulled doesn’t have to be as brutal as it sounds! Most children only notice slight pressure, but feel no pain during tooth removal, thanks to local the use of anesthesia. Depending on the parent’s preference and the condition of the child, laughing gas may be a safe way to help your child relax during their tooth extraction.
