Tooth extractions are always seen as a last resort in dentistry, and that’s no different when you visit Dr. Patrick at Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry. We have multiple options for helping you save your child’s damaged teeth. However, if an extraction does become necessary, whether it’s for a baby tooth or a permanent tooth, we’ll make sure that you know every step of the procedure beforehand and that your child is fully prepared and comfortable for their tooth extractions in Denver, CO. Feel free to give our dental office a call to schedule your child’s next appointment!
One of the most common reasons why a child may need to have teeth extracted is because of long-standing decay. Once that decay reaches the inner area of the tooth where the pulp lies, it can easily trigger an infection. Additionally, teeth that are severely cracked as a result of an injury, especially when the crack extends below the gum line, will need to be extracted. There are some instances where teeth also need to be removed due to sever tooth crowding, which would be done in conjunction with an orthodontist. No matter what the cause, Dr. Patrick will explain your treatment plan in great detail.
