What is a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is a dental procedure in which a tooth is removed from its socket in the jawbone. It can be performed on primary (baby) or permanent teeth and aims to alleviate pain, prevent further dental problems, and promote overall oral health.

Comprehensive Tooth Extraction Services

Our practice offers a range of tooth extraction services to address various dental concerns in children, including:

Decayed or Damaged Teeth: Extraction may be necessary to prevent further complications and preserve the mouth’s overall health when a tooth is severely decayed or damaged beyond repair.


Crowded or Impacted Teeth: Crowded or impacted teeth can cause misalignment, discomfort, and other dental issues. Our dentists may recommend extraction to create space and improve the alignment of the remaining teeth.


Orthodontic Treatment: In some cases, tooth extraction may be part of orthodontic treatment to facilitate proper alignment and bite correction, leading to a healthier and more harmonious smile.


Primary Tooth Removal: If primary (baby) teeth are severely decayed, infected, or blocking the eruption of permanent teeth, extraction may be necessary.


Emergency Extractions: We understand that dental emergencies can occur, causing sudden pain or discomfort. Our team can handle emergency extractions promptly and efficiently, providing relief for our young patients.


Our Approach to Tooth Extractions

At Preston Corners Pediatric Dentistry, we prioritize the comfort and well-being of our patients throughout the tooth extraction process. Our dentists are gentle and compassionate, ensuring that children feel at ease and supported during dental appointments. We utilize advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to perform extractions with precision and minimal discomfort.

Before the Extraction:

Before the extraction procedure, our dentists will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth and oral health to determine the most appropriate treatment plan. We will then discuss the reasons for the extraction, any potential risks or complications, and address any questions or concerns you may have.

During the Extraction:

Our team will ensure your child is comfortable and relaxed during the extraction procedure. We may administer local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth, providing a pain-free experience. Our dentists will then carefully remove the tooth using specialized instruments, minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues.

After the Extraction:

Following the extraction, our dentists will provide detailed instructions on caring for the extraction site and promoting healing. We recommend pain relief medication and soft foods while the area heals. Our team will also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your child’s progress and ensure optimal healing.
