Tooth Extractions

Tooth Extractions:  We routinely perform this procedure for baby teeth and permanent teeth.  Teeth may be removed to help with alignment of teeth, as part of orthodontic treatment.  In some cases, baby teeth are removed when they obstruct the eruption of permanent teeth.

  • We always take great measures to ensure each child's comfort and safety.  We have the option to use nitrous oxide/laughing gas, in addition to local anesthetic.
  • For wisdom teeth or unerupted permanent teeth, we will perform a thorough examination, take the appropriate x rays, and if indicated refer to an oral surgeon.
