Tooth extraction in children may be required when there is crowding in the mouth, damage to a tooth due to decay/infection or when the primary tooth does not fall out when the permanent tooth erupts. During a tooth extraction, we will provide local anesthesia to help prevent pain. Occasionally pain medications may be prescribed in some cases.
Post-extraction care is important to prevent infection. Your child will need to make sure he or she carefully cleans his or her mouth and avoids hot foods, sodas and hard foods. We will provide you and your child with home care and post operative instructions.
If your child needs a tooth extraction, you can count on Little Pearls to provide the most painless experience possible. Set up an appointment with our office today!
