At Pediatrics on Park, it is important that we do everything to preserve your child’s teeth. Many of our general pediatric dentistry services are in place to support and nurture your child’s forever smile. However there are instances where a tooth needs to be removed. Our qualified pediatric dental staff performs gentle tooth extractions at our welcoming dental practice in South Plainfield, New Jersey
When a tooth suffers from severe damage it can’t always be saved or restored. In these cases, a tooth extraction may be a necessary solution. Getting a tooth pulled can be a scary thought, especially for a child, but we promise there’s nothing to worry about. Our gentle methods ensure that your child is as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure. In the majority of cases, the entire procedure can be completed in under an hour. We also offer sedation options for those infants, children, and teen patients who may require it. Our goal is to make all procedures as comfortable as possible for your child and for you as a loving parent.
Pediatric tooth extraction may be needed for the following cases:
- Severe decay has impacted the tooth
- Tooth is growing at an odd angle
- Wisdom tooth isn’t erupting properly
Depending on your child’s situation our pediatric dental staff will advise on the best course of action. If teeth need to be pulled, you can count on our gentle methods to ensure the procedure does not cause fear or discomfort. We recognize getting a tooth pulled can be frightening for your child. Our caring staff is expertly trained to make our patients feel comfortable and at ease.
