Kids Tooth Extraction


A tooth can sometimes become severely damaged and is no longer functional. 


Extracting teeth is usually only necessary if the tooth has fallen victim to severe decay or breakage. This is dependent upon each child's unique needs.


There are often two general choices after a tooth has been extracted:


  1. For Permanent Teeth: Implant or bridge can replace the permanent tooth

  2. For Baby Teeth: A “space maintainer” may be needed to hold the space open for the adult tooth.


However, there are other instances in which it might be appropriate, for example:


  • Fracture

  • Infection

  • Fracture

  • Infection

  • Orthodontics

  • Overcrowding

  • Impacted Teeth

  • Severe Periodontitis
