In some cases, it may be necessary to remove a tooth in order to improve your child’s oral health. This procedure is called tooth extraction. Our experienced pediatric dentist, Dr. Rhonda Kavee, offers tooth extraction in New York, New York for:
Primary teeth – A primary tooth (baby tooth) may need to be removed if it is blocking the way for an emerging permanent tooth, if it is preventing effective orthodontic treatment, or if it is severely damaged by trauma, infection, or decay.
Permanent teeth – A permanent tooth may need to be removed if it is severely damaged, infected, or decayed and cannot be restored through a dental restoration like a filling or crown, or if the tooth is causing crowding that cannot be corrected through orthodontics alone.
Supernumerary teeth – Supernumerary teeth are extra teeth in the mouth that exceed the normal number of teeth. These teeth may need to be removed if they cause crowding and misalignment or if they interfere with the normal function and health of your child’s smile.
We will ensure that your child’s tooth extraction is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. If needed, we are happy to provide you and your child with recommendations for replacing teeth after extraction. For more information on tooth extraction and how it can improve the health of your child’s smile, we welcome you to contact us soon at ABC Dentistry RMR. We are eager to care for your family!
